This one-day conference will focus on the challenges involved in building and sustaining successful cross-sectoral partnerships between academic, business and public agencies to support regional innovation. The conference will draw on lessons learned from the EU-Drivers for a Regional Innovation Platform project.
The conference format will be highly interactive, with expert international keynote speakers, panelists and senior representatives from the European Commission.
With practical interactive sessions it will provide participants the opportunity to try out "on the ground" the lessons learnt from the EU-Drivers project; each participant will receive a copy of the EU-Drivers toolkit with good practices to support effective transformational regional innovation.
In our pre-conference reception, networking breakfast and poster sessions, the conference will provide ample opportunities for direct exchange between regional, university and business leaders as well as access to EU policy-makers.
