This chapter focuses on regions before turning to individual universities and the higher education (HE) sector locally. The chapter discusses internal arrangements within the administration concerning regions before turning to external relations: both with the university and tertiary sector and with other stakeholders in the private and third sectors. The PASCAL Universities and Regional Engagement (PURE) project like earlier Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) studies of regional development and higher education institutions (HEIs) worked more with administrators than with elected politicians and their leaders in the region. Chambers of commerce, entrepreneurs and community activists as well as HEIs then experience public administration as slow, unhelpful and self-serving. Regional innovation systems require entrepreneurialism inside government, higher education and training, as well as within industry from small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to multinationals.
