Abstract of the proposed UNIPhD research project


The increasing complexity and uncertainty of today’s business require companies to develop new entrepreneurial models by discovering and introducing knowledge resources. The objective of the project is to develop and verify a set of new knowledge-based models on “entrepreneurship for future” with their distinguishing characteristics by case studies under complexity and sustainability. The project will involve case studies, factor analysis, theoretical framework construction and empirical model verification. A combination of qualitative and quantitative methods will be employed to evaluate the constructed models and estimate the expected impacts of future. Given the current complex background, the innovative approach to problem-solving with a knowledge-based methodology in this project represents a cutting-edge interdisciplinary field.
