The Geography of Higher Education


The Geography of Higher Education (GoHE) aims to improve understanding of how Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are generating value for their surrounding communities and networks. In particular, GoHE focuses on the impact of national Higher Education policies in empowering communities and individuals by responding to the needs of regions and cities.

Entrepreneurship Education Collaboration and Engagement – EECOLE

The OECD recently launched the Entrepreneurship Education Collaboration and Engagement network (EECOLE) Network. The platform will connect all relevant stakeholders looking to boost entrepreneurialism and innovation, and is seeking civil society engagement in its working groups. Join the discussion!
