Workshop on The Role of Universities in Regional Development and Growth
Submitted by ssam78 on 13 September, 2007 - 15:07.
The purpose of this workshop is to understand how information and knowledge is diffused within the business community and transferred between universities and firms, and how these processes might be supported and enhanced. The workshop will bring together specialists from the business, policy and academic communities to provide insights on how regional knowledge exchange initiatives work and the role of universities in different spatial and economic contexts.
This event is being organised by the Cambridge-MIT Institute Partnership Programme (CMIPP) in conjunction with the Programme on Regional Innovation, and is designed for an invited audience from the Government, Regional Development Agencies (RDAs), Research Councils, academic specialists in regional analysis and policy, and business e.g. managers of Industry/University relations.
