PhDs in Entrepreneurship. Starting the international inter-university interdisciplinary postgraduate (doctoral) study ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATIVENESS was stimulated by the need for creation of competitive knowledge necessary for strengthening the proactive and innovative capacity of individuals and society in facing changes and managing changes. Study is the result of the TEMPUS Joint European Project International Centre for Entrepreneurial Studies (CD_JEP-41014-2006), which was realized by Josip Juraj Strossmayer University in Osijek, Croatia; University of Turku, Finland; University of Maribor, Slovenia; University of Klagenfurt, Austria and Durham University, United Kingdom in the 2007-2009 period. Building educational capacity at all levels of education for training for initiative and entrepreneurship requires creating a critical mass of educators from that interdisciplinary area, that is, creating teams of educators in different disciplines who can implement entrepreneurship education programs at different educational levels, from primary to tertiary. Considering the interdisciplinary character of entrepreneurship, which can be defined in the narrow (within social sciences) or the wide sense (as cognitive science within the interdisciplinary area of science), doctoral study ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATIVENESS is open to everyone interested who want to contribute to the hybridization of knowledge, and thus develop competence for innovative approach to diagnosing and solving problems. Since five universities participated in the development of the concept of the program, whose lecturing teams will also participate in its realization, students are given the opportunity to, without payment of tuitions, on the principle of reciprocity, use teaching and research resources of partner universities, on the basis of the signed Agreement...
