University Collaboration in Regional Development Spaces

University Partnerships for Prosperity: UNICREDS final report

unicreds-final-report-webThe final report from the UNICREDS project has been published today. The report is the culmination of three years of work by the fifteen partner regions with the project.

Entitled 'University Partnerships for Prosperity: How Higher Education Can Help Build Regional Knowledge Based Economies in Europe', the report summarises the results from each of the key topics considered by UNICREDS partners, from establishing the partnerships necessary to get things started, the nurture of an innovative business culture and ensuring that economic benefits are embedded in the community, through to the development of sustainable R&D activities that support regional needs.

The report highlights a number of illustrative case studies from the partner regions, showing how the good ideas actually work in practice. From the project's findings, the partners have been able to make recommendations for future policy that will help regions to develop strategies for triple helix (university-government-industry) collaboration that will strengthen and sustain regional knowledge economies.
