Changing vocabularies in university-led spaces of innovation: a systematic review

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


Universities and Higher Education Institutes (HEI) have historically had an impact on urban spaces, but there are now growing calls for institutes to play more active economic and civic roles in their cities and regions, sometimes known as the "third mission." This change in how universities are viewed is particularly clear in the civic university commission's commissioning, which aligns with the UK government's place-based regeneration and development objectives. This paper through studying academic literature, conceptualises urban regeneration, experimentation, and other university-led civic roles by conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis. This paper builds towards a renewed understanding of the changing role of universities in urban settings and its relevant implications.
