A report describes methods by which cities can promote collaboration between universities and high-growth firms to create innovation and growth. A number of case studies are included. Priorities for cities should include supporting large-scale innovation systems, building networks to match business challenges with university facilities and expertise, identifying comparative advantages and removing barriers. Pitfalls include “network fatigue”, where need to contribute to networks detracts from businesses' and universities' main activities, and excessive reliance on a single industrial sector or large company.
