The Geography of Higher Education (GoHE) aims to improve understanding of how Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are generating value for their surrounding communities and networks. In particular, GoHE focuses on the impact of national Higher Education policies in empowering communities and individuals by responding to the needs of regions and cities.
Report: Evaluation of the Academy for Smart Specialisation
The Academy for Smart Specialisation, at the Karlstad University in Sweden, shows what a place-responsive HEI does to generate skills and services promoting innovation and sustainability, in its ecosystem. The report is the first of the “Geography of higher education” series, which aims to help fill the gap between academic research/teaching and business/society.
The OECD, in collaboration with the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA), has organised a series of webinars with prominent international experts to discuss the relationship between higher education and their innovation ecosystems, also known as the Geography of Higher Education (#GoHE).
