  4. 4. Possible Further Areas <ul><ul><ul><li>to monitor and compare approaches to the innovation system and human capacity-building work of HEIs across all strands of balanced social development - cultural, civil society, health and welfare, environmental as well as economic </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>to identify barriers and ways of overcoming them, where appropriate trying out approaches new to partnership and organisation successful in other regions </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>to interrogate and use existing data more effectively and study the impact of HE partnership on regional development, with realistic tasks and targets for HE partnership-based regional development (metrics and impact evaluation) including ‘soft’ social, cultural, health and sustainability dimensions </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>possibly then to opt into selected benchmarking activities </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Further possible areas <ul><ul><ul><li>to explore the impact on regions of global warming and other ecological questions such as transportation, waste management and disposal, and the contribution of HEIs where science and social science can be applied e.g. to the intelligent energy agenda </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>to analyse and compare trends towards and away from greater devolution </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>to compare different intermediary models for university engagement </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>to exchange approaches to advocating engagement nationally and rolling out regional engagement elsewhere in their countries. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Costs and Benefits <ul><ul><ul><li>Participating in chosen strands </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Opportunities for international benchmarking </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Access to transferable practice across regions </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Direct learning from regions already engaged in analysing how higher education can support regional competitiveness and balanced, sustainable development. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Connecting with regions both within the OECD and outside. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>reflecting the reality of global learning and global regional competitiveness. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>€ 25,000 per year for two years (normally derived from a consortium of organisations) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Discounted fees for non-OECD countries (50%) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Highly subsidised fees for countries with very low GDP </li></ul></ul></ul>

  14. 14. Themes of major interest <ul><li>Environment, Tourism, Sustainability </li></ul><ul><li>Social Cohesion </li></ul><ul><li>Skills and out-reach </li></ul><ul><li>Short cycle providers </li></ul><ul><li>Mega-events </li></ul>
  15. 15. HEI Benchmarking Themes - contributions to regional development and competitiveness <ul><li>Enhancing regional infrastructure </li></ul><ul><li>supporting the regional infrastructure, regulatory frameworks and underlying quality of environment and lifestyles. This includes the HEI helping the region to identify where improvements can be made, or providing direct input to the quality of the local environment. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Theme 2 <ul><li>Human capital development processes </li></ul><ul><li>supporting the development of human capital through education and training both within the HEI and in other organisations. The emphasis here is on how the HEI adds to the stock of human capital by facilitating the development of people in the region, and retains both local and non-local graduates. (The education of people from outside the region who then leave it does not add to the stock of human capital in the region, and therefore is not relevant for this process. However it may be important at national level, and it does add to regional GDP.) </li></ul>
  17. 17. Theme 3 <ul><li>Business development processes </li></ul><ul><li>the creation and attraction of new firms, as well as support for developing new products, processes and markets for existing firms. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Theme 4 <ul><li>Interactive learning and social capital development processes </li></ul><ul><li>encouraging co-operation between firms and other institutions to generate technological, commercial and social benefits. Regional collaboration and learning between organisations are important in regional success. HEIs can promote the application of knowledge through regional partnerships, and encourage networking and the building of trust. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Theme 5 <ul><li>Community development processes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ensuring that the benefits of enhanced business competitiveness are widely shared within the community, and that the health and welfare of the population are maximised. </li></ul></ul>
  20. 20. Theme 6 <ul><li>Cultural development </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the creation, enhancement and reproduction of regional cultures, underpinning the other processes above, and interpreting culture both as activities that enrich the quality of life and as patterns of social conventions, norms and values that constitute regional identities. </li></ul></ul>
  21. 21. Theme 7 <ul><li>Promoting sustainability </li></ul><ul><ul><li>long-term regional development must be underpinned by processes seeking to improve sustainability, even though some of these objectives may appear to conflict with business development objectives. </li></ul></ul>
  22. 22. Regions - Benchmarking <ul><li>Prototype - piloting </li></ul><ul><li>Holistic rather than partial approach </li></ul><ul><li>Concrete assets (e.g. educational achievements of population) </li></ul><ul><li>And ambitions, policies and soft factors (critically important for regional economic development) </li></ul>
  23. 23. Indicators of Regional Competitiveness <ul><li>Conventional economic and social indicators </li></ul><ul><li>Qualitative measures </li></ul><ul><ul><li>examining processes to support regional development </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>mirror some issues addressed in the university benchmarking tool </li></ul></ul>
  24. 24. Quantitative Measures 1 <ul><li>GDP per capita in PPS </li></ul><ul><li>GDP growth rate over the last 5 years </li></ul><ul><li>Value added per employee in manufacturing </li></ul><ul><li>Gross fixed capital formation per employee </li></ul><ul><li>Rate of formation of new business , new firms per 100 existing </li></ul><ul><li>Levels of foreign direct investment - FDI inflow as % of GDP </li></ul><ul><li>Gross Expenditure on R&D as a proportion of Gross Domestic Product </li></ul><ul><li>Government expenditure on R&D/GDP </li></ul>
  25. 25. Quantitative Measures 2 <ul><li>Business Expenditure on R&D/GDP </li></ul><ul><li>Business R&D personnel per 10,000 inhabitants </li></ul><ul><li>Net change in population in the last ten years as proportion of total population </li></ul><ul><li>Unemployment level </li></ul><ul><li>Male and female activity rates in the workforce </li></ul><ul><li>Education participation age 18 </li></ul><ul><li>Enrolment in tertiary education 18-21 as % of age cohort </li></ul><ul><li>% of population aged 25-34 with higher education </li></ul>
  26. 26. Qualitative Measures <ul><ul><li>Understanding the region </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Framework conditions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Human capital development </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Business Development processes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interactive learning and social capital </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Community Development Processes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cultural development </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sustainability </li></ul></ul>
