This chapter aims to provide an intellectual context for the proliferation of 'innovation hubs' in higher education, across Europe. Our principal methodology is that of 'genealogy': mapping out the changing nature of higher education (over the past three decades), and analysing the political, social, cultural, and technological 'engines' which are driving it. Our intention is not to debase the notion of 'innovation hubs' but to articulate a critique (in the philosophical sense) such that we can better understand their purpose, role, and significance.
