This workshop will explore how HEInnovate helps higher education institutions, regional authorities and other stakeholders work together to develop the innovative and entrepreneurial potential of higher education institutions and the regions. It will feature practical examples and initiatives such as: the experiences of some Erasmus Plus projects that are using HEInnovate with the aim of improving collaboration between HEIs and regional authorities and how the EIT KICs can use HEInnovate as support to increase the entrepreneurial and innovation capacity of HEIs and ensure the link with the Smart Specialisation Strategies.
