This book was written as part of the BeyondScale project. BeyondScale is an Erasmus+ Forward-Looking Cooperation Project in which eight higher education institutions (HEIs) collaborate to make their institutions more entrepreneurial and innovative. In doing so they improve their capacity to manage organisational change processes around embedding entrepreneurship in their research, teaching, and knowledge transfer activities. The projects undertaken by the BeyondScale partners employ two major tools for achieving this objective.

First, the employment of the HEInnovate self-assessment tool and the HEInnovate resources found on the HEInnovate website ( Second, through establishing a so-called Buddy System, that facilitates peer-learning among the project partners.

The document “Supporting Entrepreneurial Change Processes in Higher Education Lessons from HEInnovate and BeyondScale” summarises the experiences of the BeyondScale project partners in applying the HEInnovate tool and methodology as developed for the project. Further, this brochure provides recommendations and guidelines for enhancing the use and usefulness of the HEInnovate tool and methodology.
