Economic re-generation

Highlighting Northern Ireland’s dependence on the public sector and its risk-averse business culture, Dr Pauric McGowan of Nicent extolled the virtues of entrepreneurship:

“Entrepreneurs are individuals who calculate their risk. Their decision to establish an entrepreneurial new venture must be seen as a career choice. Universities in Northern Ireland have a responsibility to support those ambitions and, in doing so, to encourage the emergence of an increasingly widespread culture of entrepreneurship and innovation.”
