Abstract In this chapter we contribute to the literature on the entrepreneurial university by focussing on research-based interventions to implement or improve the entrepreneurship education program. To this end, a benchmark study is executed in a specific domain of the life sciences in Europe, USA and Canada: the agri-food sciences. The research question of this chapter is: What kind of research-based educational interventions can be formulated for managers at universities in the life sciences who want to start with or improve their (high-tech) entrepreneurship education program? The main results of this study are that six dimensions of entrepreneurship education are identified – based on the FORA and NIRAS reports - and further developed through a literature review. These dimensions are: strategy, resources, institutional infrastructure, education, outreach and development. Based on the literature review and the benchmark study, specific educational interventions for each dimension of entrepreneurship education could be identified and described. These interventions enable managers of life science universities to start with or improve their entrepreneurship education program.
