The Role of Universities in Regional Innovation Ecosystems

EUA Study

Dr. Sybille Reichert

Universities are moving away from linear concepts of innovation to closer co-creative approaches with external partners, which help them take on a new central role in their innovation ecosystems. This EUA study focuses on the role of universities in these innovation ecosystems by analysing the nature and changing quality of the interactions between universities, companies, governmental agencies and other public organisations in nine different European regions.


 The study clearly shows the role that universities and university leadership play in this multi-actor orchestration of innovation. Moreover, it looks at how universities are developing the interplay between research, education, and innovation within the institutions.
