Policies and Interventions

RUNIN research:

Lisa’s research focuses on the role of higher education institutions (HEIs) in regional collaboration and explores the ways that HEIs participate in the formulation and implementation of regional strategies. She aims to analyse how policies can accommodate particular characteristics of HEIs to improve collaboration in regions. The overall goal is to understand why HEIs can be complicated partners in regional development and what kind of policies are needed to make universities better partners.
