The CityC -project seeks to address contemporary challenges in the field of city/regional development studies by analysing the ways universities and cities could interact more strategically than often is the case. It, first, investigates the many roles universities have in economic development of cities by carrying out a meta-analysis of the existing evidence base. Second, the project analyzes the main development models constructed to support interaction between universities and various societal and economic actors, and third, it constructs an integrated model to support (a) strategic developmend work of University Properties of Finland Ltd, (b) rapidly evolving partnership between the three universities in Tampere (Tampere3), and (c) more broadly, futures oriented development work at the Finnish universities.
