Objectives and benefits | How is the review carried out
The OECD review follows a common structure in order to ensure comparability across regions/city-regions in different countries.
The reviews investigate:
The contribution of HEIs’ research to regional innovation
The role of teaching and learning in the development of human capital and skills
The contribution of HEIs to social, cultural and environmental development
The role of HEIs in building regional capacity to act in an increasingly competitive global economy
What policies, practices and mechanisms promote mobilisation of higher education for regional and city development?
How to make reforms happen?
Which brings greater benefits to cities and regions:
a high performing regionally focused HE system or a single world class university?
