Abstract

This review of the Busan region in the Republic of Korea is part of the OECD/IMHE project entitled Supporting the Contribution of Higher Education Institutions to Regional Development. The project engaged fourteen regions across eleven OECD countries and Brazil in 2005-2006. The IMHE launched the project in spring 2004 as a response to a wide range of initiatives across OECD countries to mobilise higher education in support of regional development. There was a need to synthesise this experience into a coherent body of policy and practice that could guide institutional reforms and relevant policy measures such as investment decisions seeking to enhance the connection of higher education institutions (HEIs) to regional communities. Current practice needed to be analysed and evaluated in a way that was sensitive to the varying national and regional contexts within which HEIs operate.
