Kasia's research programme used to focus on University-Industry Interactions, specifically on the Academic and Student Entrepreneurship, as well as Entrepreneurship Education. Kasia's main project (together with Igors Skute (PhD student expected graduation date: March 2020), Isabella Hatak, and Petra de Weerd Nederhof) focused on detecting early success factors of valorisation grants/ business plans of academic entrepreneurs. This project requires text mining of valorisation grants/business plans and development of a machine learning algorithm to analyse valorisation grants (business plans).
