Log-in for full text

This chapter takes stock of the learning that has taken place through the Place Management, Social Capital and Learning (PASCAL) Universities and Regional Engagement (PURE) project, by the partner organisations and regions themselves. There may be lessons having wider applicability; learning includes being able to distinguish what is so particular and unique that it cannot be generalised from lessons having wider application. Much of the inter-regional learning as well as learning on the part of International Observatory on PASCAL itself uses e-mail, group discussion, conference calls and above all the PASCAL websites to learn and exchange experience, as well as to plan the work. PASCAL brought expert knowledge and experience of benchmarking the engagement of universities with their communities and regions into PURE. The project also had the opportunity to test and use a new tool designed for PURE to benchmark the behaviour of regions in engaging with higher education.
