Regional innovation synergies from EU measurement and analytical tools

The aim of this workshop is to provide an overview of the main analytical tools and the most up-to-date information sources available to ensure that regional decision-makers develop effective innovation and cluster policies. It will cover initiatives such as the Regional Innovation Scoreboard, the Regional Innovation Monitor and the European Cluster Observatory recently implemented by the Commission in order to create a robust knowledge base for innovation performance and cluster management across Europe. Attendance should ideally be coupled with the workshop on "Better cluster support services for green innovation" (Workshop Code 06B41).
