Place-based dimension in higher education policy making
The present publication contains a summary of the case studies of the knowledge triangle carried out by countries participating in the respective OECD project. The Knowledge Triangle approach in policy calls for a better integration of education, research and innovation at HEIs and PROs in order to increase their contributions to the local and national economy. The diversity of institutional models means that their contributions to innovation vary greatly within and among countries. The Austrian case study focused on the place-based dimension at different levels of Austrian higher education policy making and the role of governance mechanisms, including performance contracts and new structures to involve universities at regional level.
