University Economic Impact Metrics
R&D and Innovation
APLU’s Competitiveness and Economic Prosperity (CICEP) is working to develop metrics on human and knowledge capital produced by public universities that increase regional economic development. They are currently focused on identifying plausible measures that capture contributions in these areas made by public universities.
Development of university-level metrics of human and knowledge capital creation that impact local economies.
Universities will have access to the data so as to promote and improve their benefit to their local economy.
They are currently in the process of identifying potential metrics of human and knowledge capital. Possible indicators include: unfunded agreements between universities and industry, student engagement in regional economic activities, and the value of provided technical assistance.
The database has not yet been created
Still in development stages.
