Titre : le rôle des université dans le développement régional
Auteur : Union Européenne
Discipline : Développement économique
Description : Universities are increasingly recognized as being drivers of the economic and social infrastructure in their region. There is growing awareness on how universities can contribute to regional innovation through collaboration with business, local and regional governments and other local actors. The Lis- bon Strategy for Growth and Jobs, as well as the Modernisation agenda for Universities, has focused attention on the need to strengthen the ‘knowledge triangle’ of research, innovation and education. The recently announced EU 2020 Strategy by the European Commission highlights regional develop- ment and reinforces the focus on the need for innovation: “Knowledge is the engine for sustainable growth. In a fast-changing world, what makes the difference is education and research, innovation and creativity”. This rationale was at the start of the EU-DRIVERS Project, launched by the European Centre for Strategic Management of Universities (ESMU) and the DEAN network in 2009.
