[Event Announcement] Regional Innovation Impact of Universities in Europe

The event will bring together national and regional policymakers, higher education institutions and international experts interested in exploring how universities can increase their regional engagement and impact using the Regional Innovation Assessment Framework.  

 

Many universities in Europe make major contributions to their home towns, metropolitan areas and regions. But how important are they exactly? What is their actual socio-economic impact on the local environment and communities? How active are they in terms of collaborating with business enterprises and contributing to regional innovation systems? Can universities expand or intensify those connections and interactions? How can we incentivise them to do more? These are all highly relevant questions in this current day and age, where universities are often seen as core contributors to educated societies and resilient economies, yet nobody seems to have any convincing answers.

The event will bring together national and regional policymakers, higher education institutions and international experts interested in exploring how universities can increase their regional engagement and impact using the Regional Innovation Assessment Framework.
