Manual about Higher Education in South Eastern Europe is published

One of the flagship programs of WUS Austria in higher education has been the international case study competition and recruitment event Balkan Case Challenge (BCC). It was in the framework of the Balkan Case Challenge that the idea for this manual was developed.

Nowadays universities are places of knowledge production, and the economy and society are the users of this knowledge. Universities in general are seen as playing an essential role in strengthening the economic competitiveness of the region. World University Service (WUS) Austria has always put an important focus on the promotion of the enhanced knowledge transfer between universities, the business world and society at large. The present manual therefore deals with the need for a stronger connection between universities and industry in SEE, but also shows that many different types of cooperation between these stakeholders already exist. Eight country reports of national experts about different aspects of the current higher education sector as well as of the university-enterprise collaboration in each respective country were compiled. Each single report offers recommendations on how to improve the future cooperation in this area and offers insights on the existing tools and methods as well as on the possibility of developing tailor-made strategies.
