6 Metropolregion H-BS-GÖ Background information on the project Networking structures of the regional players are significant for the quality of a regional innovation system The NORD/LB was commissioned by the Metropolitan Region of Hannover-Braunschweig-Göttingen to draw up a network analysis The analysis serves to register the existing cooperations among the scientific facilities and between these facilities and companies The objective is to ascertain in which areas of competence there is not yet adequate coorperation and in which of the nodal points of the network promotional strategies can be applied 496 economically relevant university and extra-university research facilities in the metropolitan region have been questioned; rate of return: 81 %

7 Metropolregion H-BS-GÖ Results of the network analysis …..

10 Metropolregion H-BS-GÖ Proposals for action A number of scientific institutions do not cooperate within the region, yet they are strongly networked at supra-regional level make the knowledge embodied in these establishments accessible for the entire region Cooperations in some competence fields do not extend across the entire metropolitan region develop projects, which support networking activities throughout the whole region Isolated actors can be identified within the competence fields integration of those actors into the network through project Network nodes within the metropolitan regions can be identified they play an important role as strategic partners in a successful cluster policy Build up a regional knowledge management
