EUA published a major report on “The Role of Universities in Regional Innovation Ecosystems”
. Launched on 8 March at an event in Brussels, the study focuses on the role of universities in innovation ecosystems by analysing the nature and changing quality of the interactions between universities, companies, governmental agencies and other public organisations. The results are based on nine in-depth case studies of EUA member universities with a total of 173 individual interviews. The outcome clearly shows the role that universities and university leadership play in this multi-actor orchestration of innovation. Moreover, it demonstrates how universities are developing the interplay between research, education and innovation within the institutions.
