Higher Education BUILDING STRONGER, FAIRER AND GREENER REGIONS

78

Published on

This presentation was given in 2013 Unviersity-Industry Interaction Conference in Amsterdam. It disseminates the key messages of the OECD reviews of higher education in regional and city development (2005-2013) and shows what works in university-industry collaboration. It identifies key mechanisms for universities: 1) Develop relevant skills, 2) Support people-based knowledge transfer, 3) Create demand pull in SMEs, 4) Improve coordination of HigherEd system at regional level & pool resources, and 5) Increase strategic anchoring with the local and regional industries

  • The reviews investigate:The contribution of HEIs’ research to regional innovation The role of teaching and learning in the development of human capital and skills The contribution of HEIs to social, cultural and environmental development The role of HEIs in building regional capacity to act in an increasingly competitive global economyKey questionsWhat policies, practices and mechanisms promote mobilisation of higher education for regional and city development? How to make reforms happen?Which brings greater benefits to cities and regions a high performing regionally focused HE system or a single world class university?
  • Since 2005, OECD has reviewed over 30 regions in 20+ countries. During 2005-07, we reviewed 14 regions in 12 countries. This first round had a strong European focus: 9 of the 14 reviews took place in European regions and 5 of them in Nordic countries. There were important gaps, e.g. US was not included in the first round.During the second round in 2008-11, we reached out to 14 regions in 11 countries. In line with the OECD enlargement strategy these reviews had a wider reach also to non-member economies (some of which have become OECD members during the review process such as Chile and Israel). The final review round under the OECD education directorate has reached out to 6 regions: the Free State (South Africa), Sonora (MX), Wroclaw (PL), Antioquia (COL).Preparations are now under way to ensure that this work can be followed up in OECD LEED with a stronger focus on entrepreneurship, skills and local growth.
