Christian SAUBLENS EURADAs CEO
Integrated support for SMEs at regional level Research Innovation Skills IPR Compliance with standards and safety rules Prototype Proof of concept (technology and market) Demonstration Market replication Clients (public procurement / private sale) Enabling technologies and service innovation Feasibility support for R&D proposals New challenges need new approaches
New knowledge, competences, technologies New products, technical solutions, production processes New services New designs or brands New business operating models New systems and networks New life style ways New working practices, organisations or management models Public service realised in a new way Types of innovation
Today, public policies are based on: Looking backwards Benchmarking Applying fashion concepts But how do enterprises innovate? Creating new ideas Re-using existing ideas in a new form Giving old ideas a new life Absorbing/ imitating innovative ideas Following new consumers demands What is driving innovation ?
The dimensions of support for R&D+I 1. Approach to R&D+I 2. Nature of the support Research Design & Prototyping Human Capital Start ups New products/services New business models Public procurement Market replication Activities Enterprises Market Sectors Science parks Incubators & networks Infrastructure Enterprise growth Knowledge (people/talent) Research centres IP protection Tourism ICT & e-business Enabling technologies Manufacturing Financial support Non-financial support Training Skills Technology transfer Mentoring/coaching Consultancy

Four avenues of an entrepreneurial discovery process turning traditional sectors into new competitive areas Nord-Pas-de- Calais(F) in rail transport or Baden-Württemberg (D) from the automotive sector to mobility, or Friesland (NL): salt-resisting crops; modernising specialisation through new technology [Jyväskylä (FIN) in the paper industry with the integration of ICT, optoelectronics and nanotechnology]; diversifying, based on existing specialisation [whale tourism in Husavik (IS) from fisheries experience; eco-building in Lower Austria (A)]; radical change [Leuven (B) in microelectronics; Cambridge (UK) in biotechnology or Cantrabria (E) in marine science].
A commercialisation ecosystem for new ideas Concept factory technological and scientific research innovation in services transfer of technology knowledge uptake Incubation high value-added venues and networks business angels – seed capital – grants? mentoring potential entrepreneurs (by serial entrepreneurs) proof of concept technological showcasing Development venture capital – corporate venturing all-out cooperation prototyping first client closure, including through pre-competitive tendering and new PPP formats Growth internationalisation profits enabling self-financing of future investment
