Resumo: At present, the Portuguese government is trying to overcome the problem of the education level of the active population, one of the lowest registered in the OECD, and directly associated with the productivity rate. For that purpose, granting a larger state’s funding to the institutions with higher economic and educational impact is being considered. As such, the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) need to prove their value, by accurately quantifying that impact, in order to enhance or secure their budget. The main objective of this study is to determine how much the regions of Bragança and Mirandela benefit from hosting the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança. To calculate such benefits an economic impact model is being developed, based on Caffrey and Isaacs’ model (1971), adjusted to the regions in analysis. This paper describes the model and the conclusions of the first phase, which comprise a survey to the faculty, staff and students.
