Mid-West collaboration gains OECD recognition

16 May 2016 

A recent publication by the OECD highlights the Limerick region as a best practice collaborative model for education, local authority and industry partnerships.

The report entitled ‘Shared Governance, Leadership and Regional Development – A Case Study’ was prepared by Richard Thorn for the OECD in collaboration with  the University of Limerick and Limerick Institute of Technology.

The report highlights the success of industry-academia partnership models such as Limerick for IT and Limerick for Engineering; with regional HEI's working with industry and local government in delivering skills and talent, thereby enabling regional economic growth.

This is yet another acknowledgement of the leading force of collaboration and cooperation that occurs across the Mid-West region.
