Many regional and local governments want to develop a joint approach with universities and universities of applied sciences in order to optimise their regional economic output. For all parties involved, it’s important to discuss which instruments are available to evaluate and optimise the regional impact of science. This training course aims to internationally exchange good practices for achieving this. It will also introduce its participants to the Technopolicy Network-model, which shows the essential factors that determine (regional) innovation capacity, will function as a framework for the course.
