Connecting Universities to Regional Growth: A Practical Guide. A guide to help improve the contribution of universities to regional development, with a view to strengthening economic, social and territorial cohesion, in a sustainable way

Guidance and systemization of experiences

This EU Guide “Connecting Universities to Regional Growth” has been designed to enable public authorities to promote the active engagement of universities and other higher education institutions in regional innovation strategies for smart specialisation, in cooperation with research centres, businesses and other partners in the civil society. It can also be used by academic and economic partners to explore the benefits they can expect from working together for regional development. Moreover, this guide might support those interested in submitting an application to the RegioStars award 2013 on this topic, based on good practice co-funded by Cohesion Policy.
