Last week, Buck Goldstein and Holden Thorp, co-authors of Engines of Innovation: The Entrepreneurial University in the Twenty-First Century, gave a talk at the TEDxAshokaU event. Thorp is Chancellor at UNC Chapel Hill, where Goldstein serves as University Entrepeneur in Residence. The theme of the TEDx event was “Universities Driving Global Change,” and the authors spoke about the importance of utilizing a variety of disciplines and backgrounds–from both within and beyond the research university–to work towards making significant global change.
