About this item

Universities are core institutions of the Knowledge Economy, and alongside firms and other research organisations, develop and promote knowledge within local economies. At the same time, they are obliged to deal with a global market, and participate in a global flow of ideas, knowledge and people. Increasingly these roles combine as universities are seen as tools to attract, retain and diffuse global knowledge at the local scale, helping to produce unique local combinations that provide a base for global exports

This new volume provides an insight into new policies and projects by which cities and universities have sought to strengthen their mutual interaction, but also their joint interaction with a wider global knowledge economy.

Case studies are drawn from a host of countries across Europe, Asia and North America. The result is an essential blueprint for cities hoping to strengthen university-city relationships.
