Europe needs more and stronger involvement of the universities of applied sciences (UAS) in applied research and innovation. This conclusion is unavoidable if we look at the European objectives in the area of innovation and growth. The impact of the European challenge-based approach to research must be increased. The potential impact of UAS at the European level has not been fully utilised. In this position paper we will argue that Europe as a whole will benefit from realising this potential further and by focusing on the role of UAS as connectors, that is, connectors linking citizens, companies (especially SMEs) and public institutions. This will lead to greater participation and a more active contribution of the UAS to European research and innovation, Horizon 2020 and its successors. Weiterlesen
