The last two decades has seen growth in “triple helix” interactions between universities, business, and government to foster regional innovation.
Now, university roles are extending to include attention to community well-being, social innovation, and societal challenges.
This seminar examines concepts, goals, and emerging practices of university engagement with their communities and with external partners.
Speakers will present case studies of Cardiff’s new Social Science Research Park and of the linkages between health science,
business, and development in Manchester’s Innovation Corridor. The seminar will discuss insights from these cases and implications for universities.
