EUA – The Role of Universities in Regional Innovation Ecosystems

Dr. Sybille Reichert, The Role of Universities in Regional Innovation Ecosystems – EUA 2019.

This EUA study, carried out by Dr. Sybille Reichert, focuses on how universities cooperate with their partners to promote innovation. It reveals the changing interactions between universities, companies, governmental agencies and other public organisations in nine different European regions. The regions considered in the study reflected the EU’s diversity and variety of regions and cover, for instance: capital regions (Helsinki-Uusimaa, Paris-Île de France, Warsaw), regions with a large metropolitan city (Barcelona in Catalunya, Munich in Oberbayern, Manchester in Greater Manchester), but also universities in cities that are located away from an immediate metropolitan area (Brno in South Moravia, Braga in Northern Portugal, Eindhoven in North Brabant). The bulk of the study presents the role of universities in enhancing innovation in education, research and knowledge exchange, together with the role of governments and companies.
