OECD Conference: Higher Education in Cities and Regions - For Stronger, Cleaner and Fairer Regions, University of Seville,  Seville, Spain 10-11 February 2011


In the context of global economic and financial crisis, OECD countries are seeking to mobilise HEIs to support more strongly their economic, social and cultural development. Drawing on the OECD reviews and other studies, this conference looked at innovative ways in how HEIs can make their cities and regions stronger, cleaner and fairer. It highlighted key issues in human capital development and innovation and identifies ways of transforming universities. This conference brought together policy makers and practitioners; public and private bodies concerned with regional development; leaders and managers of HEIs; and those responsible for knowledge transfer, regional development and community liaison at HEIs. This international conference was organised with the Regional Government of Andalusia and hosted by the University of Seville.
