• reports on the importance and impact of research on student centred learning, student professional development, teaching and learning and models of institutional research culture;

• offers helpful models of employer inclusion in the research agenda;

• inspires higher education institutions across Europe to adopt similar approaches in line with the project references and to tap into innovative initiatives towards student centred learning, student professional development, teaching and learning and models of institutional research culture;

• guides structured partnerships between higher education and communities towards a co-operative provision for greater collaboration;

• enriches the discourse of research in Europe.
