Our HESS project is looking for examples of how universities and other Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are contributing to Smart Specialisation in regions. Read on to see how you can showcase your region!
The Higher Education for Smart Specialisation (HESS) project is looking for examples of universities and other Higher Education Institutions (HEI) active involvement in S3. Particular interest is given to HEIs involvement in the Entrepreneurial Discovery Process, Governance and Monitoring of strategies by forming close partnerships with regional authorities. We are also interested to know how regional or national HE systems promote or impede the involvement of HEIs, how funding can act as incentives (including EU and other funds), and what drives academics to engage with regional stakeholders. Examples of what works but also what does not will help all HEIs become more involved in smart specialisation, and will be used widely, notably to illustrate a forthcoming EC Handbook for HEIs and regional authorities. Deadline to complete the short survey: 15th May 2018.
