  2. The contribution of higher education institutions to strengthen socio-economic development of peripheral regions in Norway and the Czech Republic

    Start: May 2015
    End: April 2017

    The main research goal of the project “The contribution of Higher Education Institutions to Strengthen Socio-economic Development of Peripheral Regions in Norway and the Czech Republic” is to identify, assess and strengthen the possible ways of mutual influence and collaboration between regions and higher education institutions performing in these regions. The above mentioned theme will be the subject of research in chosen regions of the Czech Republic (Ústecký region, Vysočina region and Olomoucký region) and Norway (Finmark, Telemark and Agder) and in higher education institutions located and functioning in these regions. Various methodological approaches will be used, namely: analysis of secondary documents; comparative analysis; expert opinions; focus groups; qualitative field research in the given regions and higher education institutions; workshops, seminars and a conference; and external reviews. One long-term project result will be the development of a Czech and Norwegian network of researchers (including female and young colleagues) as a sustainable basis for further collaboration and knowledge transfer. The main tangible project results will be: a) the mapping of structural and programmatic elements that ease/hamper the regional role of higher education institutions; b) a set of novel methodological approaches (elaborated into the guidelines for both countries) in the form of a practical Tool Kit with pragmatic solutions and recommendations, c) a set of joint scientific publications (journal and book form). The partner institutions are the Centre for Higher Education Studies, Charles University in Prague – Faculty of Humanities in the Czech Republic and Agderforskning AS in Norway.
