Universities can play critical roles in regional industrial development through innovation and entrepreneurship clusters. Formally managing this function in an integrated fashion is not well practiced by many universities. To improve this practice, we define the roles that universities can play and numerical indicators to measure them. Most world regions are 'peripheral' to a few core areas where academic research concentrates. Peripheral regions depend heavily on natural resource industries in both developed and developing countries. Therefore, we study universities involved with wine, salmon culture, mining and eco-tourism, and collect original comparative data from four universities in Canada and four in Chile. They are mostly small schools in peripheral regions, but among the national leaders in involvement with the local resource industry.
