From graduation to employment
Developing a favourable and dynamic regional economy through the cohesion
and convergence of the European regions is a major objective of the
European Union. More growth and jobs for all regions and cities of the EU is
one of the main focuses of the new regional policy between 2007 and 2013.
Measurements of inflows and stocks of human resources in science and
technology are often considered good indicators of the growth of the
knowledge-based economy. However, pools of highly skilled persons are not
equally distributed across regions, concentration in capital regions is clearly
apparent and there are differences in and between countries.
38.1% of people in the region Oslo og Akershus
were tertiary educated
Human resources in science and technology in terms of education (HRSTE)
are persons having successfully completed third level education. The
representativeness of HRSTE in Europe varies widely from one region to
another. In Figure 1, the highest proportion of HRSTE among the regional
population is found in Oslo og Akershus (NO), with 38.1%. Inner London (UK)
and País Vasco (ES) followed, with an HRSTE share of 35.5% and 35.1%
respectively. Among the 20 leading regions in terms of HRSTE, some
countries are more represented than others: five were located in the United
Kingdom, four in Belgium and three in Spain.
