    Abstract

    The opening of satellite campuses in the vicinity of a parent university is a peculiar feature of the Italian higher education system. While this phenomenon has often been viewed as a negative development, with critics suggesting that satellite campuses needlessly duplicate existing courses and do not generate any economic benefits, the few empirical analyses carried out so far in Italy provide a more nuanced interpretation. By bringing together different strands of literature on the role of universities in the regional economy, the article suggests many possible ways in which satellite campuses may contribute to their local economies - for instance, by stimulating demand for goods and services, research activities, innovation and human capital formation. These potential contributions are then assessed through a case study: the satellite campuses of the university of Turin located in the Cuneo province, in the north-west of Italy. Findings from this case study enable us to gain better understanding of the role placed by satellite campuses in stimulating local development.
