Stakeholder day

mardi 18 janvier 2011, par julien

Devolution and regionalisation have taken place in almost all centralised European countries, driving, de facto and whatever the legal framework is, to an important development of regional research and innovation policies.
While there have been numerous studies on “regional innovation systems” and on specific components of regional R&D (industrial districts and clusters in particular), we lack both a conceptual framework and robust comparative empirical work on the variety, content, instruments and effects of such policies.
This “stakeholder day” was organised as an exchange between regional policymakers and PRIME researchers, based upon the work that has been undertaken during the last year.
The stakeholder day provided a platform for the sharing of policy experiences and lessons and its objective was to jointly take hold of knowledge acquired and to identify priority areas for further inquiry and research.
