3 Introduction to the Regional Innovation Monitor A new communication platform for innovation stakeholders (launched in October 2010). Partnership between Technopolis, Fraunhofer, and UNU-MERIT. Interactive functionalities (feed-in, feed-back functions, an on-line interregional comparison of performance, news updates). Coverage some 200 EU regions. Recently published RIM Annual Report! Thematic -, regional analysis, and policy workshops. 3 Extensive database of regional innovation policy measures, policy documents, organisations

4 4 PART 2: POLICIES AND PROCESSES OF SMART SPECIALISATION

5 Key Findings of the Thematic Paper on S 3 Building stronger networks, but only few are supporting global network interconnectivity! With the use of qualitative methods, more can be said than it is too early to judge the success. Absence of GP to support the diffusion of innovative technologies, products and services. Business R&D and R&D co-operation > Labour mobility. Three cases: Baden-Württemberg: As a Business Location for IT, Media, Creative Industries; The Paradigm for the North East; and development pathways in Silesia. 5
