EUA works to demonstrate the vital contribution of universities to regional development and sustainable innovation. It underlines how universities contribute to regional capacity building as well as to sustaining highly-competitive regions by stimulating innovation in companies and public organisations and by providing adaptable high-skilled human resources, facilitating entrepreneurship, and the circulation of knowledge.
The EUA Innovation Ecosystems Project focuses on in-depth case studies of a number of universities in different regional contexts. These include the globally competitive technological hubs, regions meeting the challenges of post-industrialisation, and regions re-inventing themselves through investments in higher education and research. The project presents key findings on the types of activities that universities are conducting to contribute to innovation processes.
