Alfa III - Proyecto "El Gate"
Universities could play a key role in the knowledge-based economy and society since they are situated at the crossroads of research, education and innovation. Alongside of their mission to produce and transmit knowledge through research and teaching activities, Universities are called to open up more to industry, to lifelong learning and labour market needs, as to regional development strategies, in order to contribute to economic competitiveness and social cohesion.
In that framework, some European Universities are experiencing new models of integration in local systems and cooperation at a global level, acting as a gate between local and international dimensions, linking local actors to the knowledge produced by the world community of teachers and researchers.
The implementation of those models requires developing new functions in University structures and incorporating representatives of the non-academic world within universities' management and governance structures.
