UNIVERSITIES, SKILLS AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP
The University of Wales was invited to attend an OECD workshop last year on the role of universities and strategic partnerships in the local and global context.
Some of the themes discussed included how to successfully manage opportunities; threats in public and private funding; attractiveness and internationalisation; and how to balance global linkages with local success.
Dr Niall Mackenzie, Research Fellow at the University of Wales and Director of the Institute for Innovation Studies, contributed to the programme.
His discussion can be seen 2 minutes and 40 seconds into the video.
