Abstract [en]

This paper analyzes the impact universities have on regional development and as to whether adifference can be detected between the influence of the old and new universities. To achievethis end a unique dataset on the researchers’ view regarding the universities role in commercialization,distinguishing between new universities (established around 1970) and old universities(established in the 15th and 17th century), is initially utilized. In the subsequent stagespatially disaggregated data is implemented in a two-step Heckman regression analysis to examinewhether a relationship exists between the universities research specialization and regionalproduction specialization 1975 to 1999. The results reveal that there are considerabledifferences across universities, albeit primarily unrelated to the age of the universities. Finally,the impact of universities on regional productivity in knowledge-based industries is examined.
