Abstract: In this report we first carry out an extensive survey of the literature that is relevant for the analysis of the regional impact of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). Based on the literature we specify some broad research questions and we develop a battery of testable hypotheses. We then present the details of the data used in the empirical analysis. Summary statistics for the available datasets and a preliminary discussion of the econometric approach are also presented. In the second part of the Report we describe the structure of models and show the findings of several alternative specifications. We discuss the main results and illustrate further opportunities for research and policy making.
