HEBIS-NI : The contribution of Universities to Northern Ireland

From January 2002 to March 2002
Project Leader(s): David Charles
Staff: Paul Benneworth, Cheryl Conway, Stuart Dawley
Sponsors: Department of Education and Learning Northern Ireland

This short study applies the methodology developed in the Regional Mission series of monographs for Universities UK to the case of Northern Ireland.

The resultant report will cover the same themes used in the Regional Mission series, specifically:
Competitiveness and business support
Urban and rural regeneration
Labour markets and lifelong learning
Health and social welfare

The report maps out the kinds of interactions that are currently taking place, pointing to evidence of success and impact where available.
