Today universities are important actors of the innovation process as entrepreneur and, at the same time, they have a big contribution in the development of the entrepreneurship behavior. Universities are still focus on their traditional academic role of social reproduction and extension of certified knowledge (through the education, training and academic research activities), but placed them in a broader context as part of its new role in promoting innovation and entrepreneurship. This article describes important aspects of the knowledge transfer processes develop by universities in order to promote and develop entrepreneurship values, behavior and so, to increase their implication and contributions to local/regional economic development. In this context, there are presented some considerations about the new roles of universities in the knowledge based society and how knowledge transfer activities are developed by the university in order to support new entrepreneurs. In addition, a study focused on the entrepreneurship education as part of the non-business disciplines is shown, in particular within a technical and scientific university/faculty. In the final part of the article, are presented the research conclusions (as obstacles and success factors for the entrepreneurship education) and the knowledge map for describing the business competencies for the graduate students in the case of the Politehnica University of Timisoara, Faculty of Production and Transportation Management.
