< 75 % PIB/habitant Indice UE27= % > 90 % Towards an S3 strategy for: Northern France – The Lille Région Sevilla, 31 January 2012 [Jean-Marie Pruvot & Jean-Christophe Godest (Regional Innovation Agency) Yannick Giry (Regional Council) Valérian Pham (State)]
Introduction Nord-Pas de Calais : 4 million inhabitants, 86 billion GDP; 7 Universities, 28 graduate schools (business and engineering); diversity and youthful of the population; 3 rd purchasing power in the world, in a 300km radius, behind Tokyo (1 rst ) and Cologne; 0,7 % of GDP for R&D expenses (2,2% for France); A Regional Scheme for Economical Development (RSED) driven by regional Council with local communities A Regional Innovation Strategy (RIS) launched at the end of 2009, in the frame of the RSED
Place based dimension of the RIS3 key challenges and main competitive advantages of your region : A rural Pas de Calais and an urban Nord (more than 1Million inhabitants in the Lille Community); A growing population but less than the France average; 3 big harbours (fish, passengers and freight), channel tunnel Agriculture 1.1% Industry 25.3% Construction 9.2% Services 64.4%; Historic strengths : Railway transport, Automotive, Logistics, Wholesale trade; Under the France average for Knowledge Intensive Business Services How does the current strategy meet the overall vision for the regions development, e.g. in terms of sustainability and inclusiveness?
Achieving critical mass Régional priorities selected, after involving interest groups, with the help of consultants, by national and regional authorities : EA = Entrepreneurial activity SA = Scientific activity Railway transport, Health-Nutrition-Food, Commerce of the future EA + SA Automotive ; Buildings and eco-construction; Mechanical engineering Advanced materials (green chemistry, textiles, composites); EA +SA EA EA + SA Energy and power electronics; Waste treatment, sediments, polluted sites and soils; Images and digital creation; E-health SA EA+SA SA
Prospects for an entrepreneurial process of discovery business community is involved by the way of their representatives : chamber of commerce, employer's organisations.…All clusters's Presidents are (was) SME's managers; difficulties to involve higher education institutions, ties are not close enough; Governance, managers networks and working groups may help to facilitate the EPD; local and regional authorities give the political legitimacy and …the foundings; regional intermediaries are the regional policies ambassadors and could get the feedback from SME's.
Outward-oriented aspects of the RIS Competitivity clusters are connected with relevant clusters in other regions : ex UpTEx with TECHTERA (FR), AEI (SP),CLUTEX (CZ), INNTEX (DE), NWTEXNET (UK), POINTEX (Italie), Textile Cluster of Valencia (SP); NFID is member of : EURADA, ERRIN, EBN, his director is member of ADARI; NFID is project partner in : MKW (benchmark), Know-Hub (S3), InnoMot and Tandem Interreg programs; During , we plan to develop synergies with : Flanders, Picardie, Champagne & Wallonia
Future orientation of the S3 process Have to involve the local partners at the begining of the design process; Synergies to be developped with Champagne, Flanders, Picardie & Wallonia; More focused, less complex, easier to follow; Score board of actions plans, impact indicators, one steering committee each month, two strategic committee each year.
Summary and next steps Build a retro planning (2014) and meet the others regions; Involve the local clusters and detect entrepreneurs Keep a good partnership between regional and national authorities; What do you think is needed in the medium term to develop a regional innovation strategy for smart specialisation in your region? Main challenge (for S3 building ?) is to motivate all partners as actual RIS was launched two years ago; Need review of others regions and support of experts
