The purpose is to provide HEIs, regional and national authorities, and policy makers with information and analysis to assist them in formulating and implementing policies to mobilise higher education for social, economic and cultural development.
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
Outputs of the review
The reviews will produce a range of outputs that will be disseminated via print and electronic means, workshops and seminars:
- Regional self-evaluation reports prepared by the regions and their HEIs
- Peer review reports of all regions prepared by international experts
- Commissioned papers
- International comparative analysis on specific issues
