The engagement of regions with local higher education institutions (HEIs) implies that those responsible for regional administration have the will and ability to choose partnership. Central government may relate directly to levels lower than the main region, delegating and funding to different government levels and even to individual institutions in the public and private sectors. At the highest level and prefiguring policy-making, governments need to clarify and make known their philosophies, assumptions and hence their aspirations and intentions for higher education. The PASCAL Universities and Regional Engagement (PURE) study may indeed suggest that for some purposes 'regions' not matching the constitutional and administrative arrangement of government have advantages for higher education in engaging local-regional development. Governments tend to equate higher education with universities, making this the main focus of interest in engaging HEIs with the potential of a region.
