INSPIRED – Innovation Networks for Regional Development

The main objective of the project is to build a comprehensive model of how organizations—firms, public research organizations and other relevant organizations—create and exchange knowledge in a concrete regional setting, how they form innovation networks, and how they contribute to successful and sustainable innovation
