1 8th European Week of Regions and Cities Brussels 4-7 October 2010 Open Days University Introducing Multilevel Governance in the ERA ERA-making as a Multilevel Governance Process Towards scenarios of their co-evolution Rémi Barré CNAM, Paris, France

2 . 1.Multi-level Governance and the Innovation Union initiative are interdependent processes 2. Reflecting and building scenarios of their co-evolution could shed light on both

3 1. the multiple inter-connections 1.1. Innovation Union Initiative: challenges and opportunities for Multi-level Governance (1) a) The overall dynamics -Increased integration of national research and innovation policies between MSs in coordination with the EC Increased horizontal interactions among MSs Renewed strategies for regional actors for horizontal and vertical coordinations

4 1. the multiple inter-connections 1.1. Innovation Union Initiative: challenges and opportunities for Multi-level Governance (2) b) Challenge -The intergovernmental dimension and variable geometry Variability in the positioning at national level Differenciation of horizontal interactions between regions belonging to nations with different policies and strategies.

5 1. the multiple inter-connections 1.1. Innovation Union Initiative: challenges and opportunities for Multi-level Governance (3) c) Opportunity Removing obstacles to mobility and cross border co-operation: Facilitation of horizontal interactions between regions.

6 1. the multiple inter-connections 1.2. Multi-level Governance as a condition of success of the Innovation Union Initiative (1) Key-features which depend on Multi-level Governance -Smart specialisation: cohesion- competitiveness issues -Pooling of resources for pressing societal challenges -Social innovation, inclusive / responsible innovation and participatory democracy : CoRs White Paper -Knowledge triangle strategy - Research infrastructures

7 1. the multiple inter-connections 1.2. Multi-level Governance as a condition of success of the Innovation Union Initiative (2) Perspectives - open method of regionalised coordination -multi-level governance contracts Conclusion ERA-making and Multilevel Governance Process are two inter-woven processes which co-evolve.

8 2. Towards scenarios of the co-evolution of the ERA and Multi-level Governance processes Exploring jointly the possible futures of these two powerful political and policy-shaping dynamics Suggestion: start from the ERA scenarios published by Futuris Combinations of hypothesis on three key-questions

9 2. Towards scenarios of the co-evolution of the ERA and Multi-level Governance processes Are Europeans capable of : a) establishing integrated financing systems on the scale of major societal challenges ? b) creating a unified research and innovation area, including opening up Europe to national public funding ? c) creating partnership strategies that would lead to their research capacities being integrated in top-level institutions and world- scale clusters ?

10 2. Towards scenarios of the co-evolution of the ERA and Multi-level Governance processes These key-questions are impacted by hypothesis on the dynamics of Multi-level Governance processes Scenarios of the ERA are also scenarios on Multi-level Governance processes, and vice versa To dis-entangle, explore and discuss these co-evolutionary processes may shed light on both.
