Simon Mosey is Director of the Haydn Green Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Nottingham. He is editor of the Journal of Technology Transfer and his research interests address technology entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship education and innovation management. Technology entrepreneurship as a discipline of study has come of age. The international research community is no longer debating what technology entrepreneurship means or spending time justifying its importance. Here, Simon defines technology entrepreneurship as the interface between the more established academic fields of entrepreneurship and technology based innovation (Beckman et al, 2012). We argue that novel insights are more likely to be found at such interfaces as we highlight opportunities for new teaching and research approaches.
