Watching Innovations Grow

The Regional Innovation Monitor (RIM) organised a Second Policy Workshop "New Practices in Regional Innovation Policy - towards Regionally Adapted Strategies" on 28 October 2011 at the Committee of the Regions.

By organising this event, the RIM conveyed new perspectives, raised new questions, and advanced new ideas for the development of more successful regional innovation policies. In three thematic sessions addressing the topics of "smart specialisation", "demand side oriented policies", and "the role of universities in regional development", participants were presented with findings from the Regional Innovation Monitor Project as well as insights from policy practice.  At the end of each session of the workshop, participants were invited to actively exchange their opinions on those topics and provide concrete examples of practises adopted in their respective regions.
