The paper examines how university strategies and regional development paths co-evolve. The aim is to contribute to the discussion on how regions in a path dependent way transform over time, and how local universities may take on differentiated roles in those processes. Although regional development is path dependent, I discuss how regions may overcome such intertie, by illustrating how universities contribute to create new, transform established, or extend existing economic regional development paths through collaboration with the regional industry.
