This thesis entitled ‘Assessing antecedents and consequences of entrepreneurial activities of academics at South African universities’ investigates whether aspects related to the human, physical and organisational capital resources of academics influence their engagement in consulting, sponsored research, licensing/assignment of intellectual property and the spin-off creation with industry, government and civil society. It also examines the way in which the entrepreneurial activities of academics impact on their research and teaching outcome parameters. The research study provides scholars investigating academic entrepreneurship, policy makers and university administrators with the key resource drivers of entrepreneurial action. This knowledge may, in turn, assist them in establishing the appropriate role of institutions and organisations in promoting the entrepreneurial activities of academics.
