Professional Higher Education Institutions play an important role in enhancing European competitiveness and innovation capacity, especially on the regional level where they act as connectors and crucial links between the regional SMEs, regional organisations and society.

However, further support is needed for development and enhancement of staff capacity to engage into applied research & innovation activities, link these to teaching and develop relevant ways for engagement of students in these activities.

The RECAPHE project, therefore, aims to broaden insight and awareness of applied research & innovation activities within Professional Higher Education Institutions in Europe and to create a platform for imparting further competences to research staff and students related to their specific experience and needs.
