Foreword

Sustainable growth at regional level is now, more than ever, predicated on the capacity to innovate. This publication focuses on two main questions: • How can regional actors support innovation that is relevant for their specific regional context, building on their human and physical assets? • How should national innovation policies take into account this regional dimension, the local nodes in global networks?
