Creative Regional Development: Knowledge-Based Associations Between Universities and their Places
Keywords:Higher Education, Knowledge-Based Associations
AbstractThe mere presence of a university in a region is no guarantee that it will be beneficial for a region's development prospects in a knowledge world. The past decade has seen universities become a greater part of the regional landscape in Australia. The author studied a diverse array of exemplary knowledge-based partnerships between universities and communities, and from this research reports on effective practices, benefits to the campus and to the community, and implications for policy.
