OECD reports points to Øresund Science Regions as model case for crossborder cooperation
Higher education in regional development
The OECD international review project focused on the role of higher education in regional development.
The Øresund University and the Øresund Science Region have made progress in constructing a bottom-up cross-border science region. The OECD Peer Review Team believes that Øresund has potential to become a significant motor for the two nations. There is, however, a need to encourage an agreement between the two national governments for harmonisation of current policy differences impeding cross-border development. There is also a need to make the Øresund partnerships more inclusive and operational in a practical sense.
Øresund aims to become a world leading science region through enhanced knowledge transfer and cross-border integration. The region ranks third behind London and Paris in biotechnological and medical research. A large part of the economy is, however, based on traditional, low-tech activities.
