1 Swedish National Agency for Innovation Systems Innovating Through EU Regional Policy Creating the Right Environment Workshop 1B Nurturing Local and Regional Clusters: The Role of Public Authorities June 12, 2006 Deputy DG Karin Markides

2 Identify the Characteristics of a National Innovation System The economy strongly internationally linked Multinational companies dominates the R&D-system (> 3% GDP) Small- and medium size companies invest very little in R&D Universities dominates the public R&D-system and they have a third task, to cooperate with companies and society (0.75% GDP) Small sector of Research-institutes (0.2% GDP) Government invests very little R&D-money in companies outside the military sector Karin Markides SWEDEN

3 Depending Actor Groups PPUP, Public Private University Partnership Developing innovation system is to make above efficient, i.e. to make investment in R&D profitable. Identify bottlenecks and possibilities. Knowledge based economy Government Public sector BusinessResearch Karin Markides Private Capital Communication

4 Provide proactive abilities for local, regional and national innovation systems Karin Markides

5 Policy Analysis National Innovation Strategy (foresight, back sight, global outlook) Networking Hard-closed, or soft-open network Benchmarking Learning Cluster Agglomeration of similar stakeholders Competitive strength Functional Clusters Interaction of different stakeholders Entangling process The Non-linear Innovation Process Karin Markides

8 Functional Cluster Sector Specific Demands and Research Infrastructure Regional Conditions and Cultural Settings Drivers for Success when Building Strongholds Business Research and Development Policy/Public Individuals and Leadership Unique Resources Karin Markides

9 Targets on the Public Authorities Agenda Nurture an holistic view Cut fragmentation Recognize leadership Catalyze coordination of resources Reward sustainable growth Drive attraction values Provide long term vision Utilize time windows Increase mobilization Karin Markides

10 Entangle stakeholders and keep dynamics going Karin Markides

11 Development is good! Change is no good! For development change is needed!!! Entangling Phase Karin Markides

12 Build attractive functional regions to critical mass Karin Markides

13 Selected VINNOVA Actors Programs VINN- Excellence-Centers Program Strong research and innovation environments in universities and research institutes Research – excellence, dynamics, need- inspired Industry – dedicated partners VINNVÄXT (VINNGROWTH) Program Functional clusters Research profile –excellence Industry – competitiveness and cluster Politics and society – engagement and support Key Actor Program Professionalizing universities and research institutes Technology/knowledge licensing and transfer Incubators and innovation centers SME Program Karin Markides

14 Success Factors for a Regional Innovation System Regional leadership for renewal Shared vision/strategic concepts Strong commitment from the business community Identification of unique growth areas Regional focus/prioritization Strategic links to value added strongholds Strong research and innovation cultures Strategies and resources for learning Insight into business and development logic Karin Markides Yearly program: 6-10 regions get 15 M/y(+15 M/y from region) First call 2002/2003 gave 59 proposals and 3 winners

15 UPPSALA BIO Uppsala BIO is an initiative from the local biotech industry, the two universities in Uppsala, and regional development bodies. Its aim is to contribute to the long-term growth of the biotech sector in the region. The coordinated action plan developed by all parties involved defines four strategic areas. 1. Uppsala BIO-X – the cross-disciplinary research effort for biotech projects 2. Secure the sectors future needs for suitably trained people 3. Secure the flow of high quality innovations from idea to industry 4. Communicate the regions competences to the world Madeleine Neil Rhiannon Sanders Jonas Åström


17 Provide seed capital with long term and sector specific knowledge Karin Markides

18 Research in Small and Medium Size Companies Achieve international competitiveness Become an attractive and visible supply company Grow and develop within the country Interact with research within university/institutes Create jobs for academically trained people Increase knowledge content in products, processes, people Develop collaborations Build networks and clusters Present SME-programs in Sweden Research&Grow 10 MEuro/ year (0.007, 0.05, 0.5 levels) VINN NU (20 x 0.03 MEuro/year) Karin Markides
