1 Regional Innovation Strategy LORIS Lodz Region RIS LORIS Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region 1 Anticpating Future - Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region LORIS Pawel Zuromski, President of the Board, Lodz Regional Developmemt Agency Open Days 2006 Brussels, 10th November 2006

2 Regional Innovation Strategy LORIS Lodz Region RIS LORIS Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region 2 ANTICIPATING FUTURE – General Questions? How to build a real partnership for fostering regional innovation system? (LORIS Project, LORIS Plus, LORIS Wizja) How to implement effectively Regional Innovation Strategy? (RIS LORIS, LORIS Plus, LORIS Tex, IRDOP- 2.6, etc.) How to develop a collaboration with EU innovating regions in order to identify good practices in innovative policies? (IASMINE, LORIS Plus) How to organise a system for monitoing and evaluation of the Regional Innovation Strategy? (Man Vise, IASMINE, LORIS Plus)

3 Regional Innovation Strategy LORIS Lodz Region RIS LORIS Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region 3 Area (sq km) population (thousand). Lodz RegionPoland 18 219 5,8% 2 663,6 6,9% 312 685 100% 38 667,0 100% Statistic data: POSITION OF THE LODZ REGION

4 Regional Innovation Strategy LORIS Lodz Region RIS LORIS Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region 4 POSITION OF THE REGION IN TERMS OF RESOURCES AND KNOWLEDGE POTENTIAL – Diagnosy 2003 The Lodz Region, in the national ranking, holds middle position in terms of resources and knowledge potential. This position is unsatisfactory as there is a strong positive correlation between knowledge resources in the region and its economic output. Average knowledge resources diminish regions chances for visible growth in development dynamics. Especially because the recent years economic development level of the Region (calculated as GDP per capita) has been lower than average in Poland and accounts for 90,5% of the national GDP per capita. Moreover, this situation may contribute to the consolidation of the root-periphery model where the Lodz Region is strongly dominated by the Mazowieckie Region with the Warsaw City, as the Regions capital, where the most dynamic and innovative elements migrate to. This threat appears to be even more serious when considering that once established a root-periphery relationship has a tendency to strengthen.

5 Regional Innovation Strategy LORIS Lodz Region RIS LORIS Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region 5 LORIS Project 2003-2004: OBJECTIVES To define the directions of the innovation policy and the ways to optimise regional structures supporting innovativeness; Cooperation with regional authorities in implementing effective system of innovation support; Advertising the possibilities of using Structural Funds in the Lodz Region for development of the research activities and promoting the innovative image of the Region; Preparation of the pilot actions.

22 Regional Innovation Strategy LORIS Lodz Region RIS LORIS Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region 22 Tasks: 1.Assesment of the adequacy of the monitoring & evaluation system of the RIS LORIS 2005-2013 (defined under the LORIS Project in the period 2003-2004). 2.Modification of the system of monitoring & evaluation with a special consideration of procedures. Monitoring and evaluation process (preparation and implementation) is assisted by supporting regions and external consultants. RIS LORIS 2005-2013 – MONITORING & EVALUATION

23 Regional Innovation Strategy LORIS Lodz Region RIS LORIS Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region 23 Experiences of Lower Austria : There is no available universal indicators for monitoring of innovations (RIS). 70% of indicators are originally elaborated (adopted) by the RIS implementation institution. 30% of indicators have to fulfil European Commissions requirements (in the case of Structural Funds assistance). Monitoring of RIS requires of surveys. RIS LORIS 2005-2013 – MONITORING & EVALUATION

24 Regional Innovation Strategy LORIS Lodz Region RIS LORIS Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region 24 REGIONAL FORESIGHT – VISION OUTSIDE OF THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE RIS LORIS 2005-2013 RIS LORIS researches allowed to create three priorities, aiming at increasing competitiveness in short period until 2013. Those priorities were created basing on the present, historically-shaped, spontaneous development of economy and science in the region. Foresight is a process which links three elements: –Anticipative thinking, forecasting, prognosing and shaping a vision of what may happen in the future; –Participative methods of the flow of concepts and ideas about the future; –Development of new social networks and connections enabling evolution of formal products (prognosis and scenarios) of foresight into real activities.

25 Regional Innovation Strategy LORIS Lodz Region RIS LORIS Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region 25 REGIONAL FORESIGHT – VISION OUTSIDE OF THE THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE RIS LORIS 2005-2013 Experts participating in the 2004 foresight research (vision of the Lodz Region created by experts) were of the opinion that following factors would have highest level of impact on the competitiveness and innovativeness of the Region: –intensification of advanced technologies usage in agriculture and food-processing, –development of production of active textiles. The first example is expected to appear in short term. Active textile perspective is foreseen for the years 2010- 2015 and further. The main barrier hindering the whole process is and will be insufficient R&D financing.

26 Regional Innovation Strategy LORIS Lodz Region RIS LORIS Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region 26 REGIONAL FORESIGHT – VISION OUTSIDE OF THE THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE RIS LORIS 2005-2013 Equally important, in terms of regional competitiveness and innovativeness development, is wide-spread usage of TIT for production planning, quality management, marketing, logistics in food-processing. Nevertheless, according to experts expectations this will appear in the middle or long term perspective. Insufficient R&D financing as well as lack of social acceptance (emphasised by 25% of experts) will be barriers hindering this process. Emergence of industrial clusters (ceramic and furniture) will have incomparably lower influence on the Region development yet it will contribute to strengthening of the regional competitiveness level. In the view of experts this will happen before 2015.

27 Regional Innovation Strategy LORIS Lodz Region RIS LORIS Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region 27 REGIONAL FORESIGHT – VISION OUTSIDE OF THE THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE RIS LORIS 2005-2013 New functions of the Lodz Region are another issues covered by foresight programme. Experts assessed possibilities of transition of the Lodz City and the Lodz Region into: –fashions design centre, –exhibition-conference-fair centre, –main multimodal centre for the logistic and transport, –tourism development. In experts opinion each of the presented options will require time - the longest for transportation-logistic centre and exhibition-conference-fair centre.

28 Regional Innovation Strategy LORIS Lodz Region RIS LORIS Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodz Region 28 LORIS WIZJA Project – REGIONAL TECHNOLOGICAL FORESIGHT Aim: –Elaboration of a forecasts for the Lodz Region (in 2006-2008) concerning the technology development until the year 2020 in the field of sustainable development which would decide on the Regions future (dynamics of economic growth, changes in the level of innovation and competitiveness, potential in the creation of new jobs-places and increasing of the standard of living) Tasks: –Determination of regions present technological profile (development directions in sectoral trends which are the most important in terms of regions sustainable development) –Benchmarking (indication of voivodships strenghts and weaknesses in terms of present specialization profile and determination of possible development directions) –Determination of priority technologies of the future –Scenarios of regions development
