Mid-sized University Cities in the European Union: Graduate Flows and Local Labour Market
The European Week of Regions and Cities is an annual four-day event during which cities and regions showcase their capacity to create growth and jobs, implement European Union cohesion policy, and prove the importance of the local and regional level for good European governance.
The 2023 Week takes between 9-12 October 2023 and is held in-person in Brussels. More on the #EURegionsWeek can be found here.
As in previous years, the learned societies (European Regional Science Association ERSA, Association of European Schools of Planning AESOP and the Regional Studies Association European Foundation RSA Europe) led by RSA Europe collate and develop sessions that showcase the best of new research to the largely policy audience at the #EURegionsWeek.
Our last session of the day takes place 10th October 2023, 16.30 CEST
Mid-sized University Cities in the European Union: Graduate Flows and Local Labour Market – Tuesday 10th October, 16.30-17.30 CEST
This session will highlight the role of universities in regional & urban development with a focus on small & mid-sized cities, present the push & pull factors that are in operation at university locations & determine factors that result in a brain-drainers or brain-gainer location. Insights will be provided on links between universities & an entrepreneurial environment that could act as driving force for graduates’ decision to stay/to leave or to attract young graduates from other locations.
