    Abstract

    Many studies focus on applying scientific technologies in manufacturing, or investigating the regional impact of contract and co-operative research of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). However, HEIs' role as builders of the regional innovation system (RIS) has generally been under-researched. We review literature on the role of HEIs in fuelling the RIS and offer suggestions for deliberate actions that stimulate regional development. For further research we suggest to perform a network analysis addressing factors that relate to characteristics of: (1) HEIs; (2) regional firms; (3) the collaborative relationship; and (4) the environmental context in which HEIs and firms are embedded.
