Short description :
Universities and other higher education institutions (HEIs) can play a key role in human capital development and innovation systems. HEIs can help their cities and regions become more innovative and globally competitive. In the context of global economic and financial crisis, OECD countries are seeking to mobilise higher education to support more strongly their economic, social and cultural development.

OECD Reviews of Higher Education in Regional and City Development assist local and regional governments and higher education institutions to achieve that objective. Since 2005, OECD/IMHE has reviewed 28 regions in 18 countries. More regions can now sign up to the third round of reviews (2011-12).

This conference will look at innovative ways in how HEIs can best contribute to the partnership building in the knowledge-based economy. It brings together policy makers and practitioners; public and private bodies concerned with regional development; leaders and managers of HEIs; and those responsible for community liaison and regional development at HEIs.
