The report is the result of fieldwork conducted during the RUNIN Project Summer School, which was held in Enschede on June 25th-29th 2018. During the week, the RUNIN researchers had the opportunity to explore the case of Twente and assess the role of HEIs in the innovation and development of the region. A number of interviews with regional stakeholders in leading positions in local government and academia were conducted, and served as the main input of the analysis in this document. This report aims at providing recommendations on how to improve the role of the Twente Board and the regional HEIs in the development of the region of Twente through innovation. The three HEIs are the University of Twente (UT), Saxion University of Applied Sciences (SUA) and ArtEZ University of the Arts.
