Development of a Grid for Repositioning

IO1 Development of a Grid for Repositioning

The classic public value of higher education in the Netherlands, Belgium and Sweden, is twofold: qualification for a profession and preparation for participation in society. For the future labour market this is no longer sufficient. Participants must be prepared for lifelong learning and continuous change. Furthermore, there are two more public values: maintaining qualifications of adult workers and entrepreneurs (lifelong learning) and contributing to the innovation of professions and economic activity (regional innovation) (¹Moore, 1995).When reassessing, education organisations may vary how to prioritize those three public values and how they fill it in. In addition, the higher education organisation can claim choices to the extent that these assignments are developed in parallel, or even be used to reinforce each other.

IO5 The pilot

In this pilot, triple helix partners work together. Students, teachers and experts from education institutes take part. Not only from one country but also from the other countries: each region will have a mixture of local triple helix partners. The pilot gives insight into the new complexity of the challenges. It shows how schools can reposition themselves in the region, how they are viewed by partners in the region and what the triple helix network should look like to implement this new position. All this gives input to develop the portfolio, capacity of the college to handle their new position and insight for management how to lead the way.
