European networks and Projects on Innovation OPEN DAYS Investing in Europe's Regions and Cities Fostering Regional Innovation Dr. Ing. F. Bellido Brussels, October 11th 2006
Regional Competitiveness Regional development is only possible if local companies (and universities, and public administration, and...) remains competitive In the last decades, industrial policy has evolved: –(70s) defendence of mature sectors –(80s) aggressive technology oriented actions (IT; biotechnology; new materials –(90s) new glocal approach: early clusters –(00s) EU-Transregional clusters - Technology Platforms,..
Regional Innovation Policies Regional Ministry for Science and Education (DGUI). – IV PRICIT Regional Plan for Scientific Research ( ) – madrimasd Regional Ministry for Economic Affairs and Technological Innovation.(DGIT – IMADE) –Madrid Technological Innovation Green (2003) and White book (2004) –PIE (Enterprise Innovation Plan 2002 – 2007) –PCCP (SMEs and Intermediate/non profit interfaces ) –Aerospace Strategic Plan ; Galileo Madrid, GMES Madrid –Biotech Strategic Plan (2006-?) –ICT Strategic Plan ( ?)
R&D+I in the Regional Context The regional strategy in terms of future is fully aligned with the Lisbon Agenda, supporting in particular three main pillars : –Knowledge generation and management ERA + National and Regional R+D+I programmes ( ,…) Education and training –Competitiveness (and sustainability) European Innovation and Competitiveness Space + National and Regional IAPs ( , ,…) Innovative firms (NTBFs + existing firms) Normative and facilitator role (laws, norms and standards, early use, pilot and demonstration activities) –Access to financing and infrastructures
Aerospace Critical Technology Areas I&CT Transport Biotechnolog y Precision Manufacturing New Materials Environment and Energy Biomimetic materials Bionics Smart Roads Remote Monitoring
The Regional Vector within the (three) key innovative sectors (drivers) EUTP Objective: To facilitate and accelerate the development and deployment of cost–competitive, world class European products, systems, component technologies and services The Madrid regional added value: accelerate and prepare the change, supporting region based specific world class activities in these domains, targeting synergetic effects/empowerment. Key role of the European networks and projects (since 1989; continuously reinforced since 1997: –RIS/RITTS –EC – ERA, IRE and IRC Networks –EC - PAXIS Network – Spring (Speed-up of Regional Innovation and Economic Growth): NTBFs. European regions of Excellence in Innovation –Projects: Regions of Knowledge, ERA-Star, Blueprints, Interreg-Repartir+, –Galileo Masters Competition. –Region based SMEs Internationalisation.
