INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION The INOLINK Project focuses on regional policies and practices for the diffusion of innovation. The INOLINK Project tackles the issue that innovation activities are usually concentrated within a limited number of innovative firms, typically concentrated in certain geographical areas, whilst most of the European firms, generally SMEs, never undertake innovation. The INOLINK Project will pay particular attention to the exchange and identification of good practices on regional diffusion of technology and expects to achieve the following results: Improved knowledge of the people responsible for regional level innovation policies on needs for innovation services in their peripheral areas, and on instruments and policies to respond to such needs; Increased awareness among actors in the regional innovation systems on the offer and demand for innovation services from the other actors in the system and on the potential for cooperation and collaboration; Improved competences of staff from public institutions and other organisations with a public mission on tools, methods and policies for the regional diffusion of innovation, entrepreneurship and technology. At the same time, INOLINK has also carried out interregional events, such as workshops, seminars and study visits enabling the identification of Good Practices. A report will be complied with case studies and good practices in regional policies for territorial diffusion of innovation. This document will look at the methodology that the INOLINK partners followed while looking at the Good Practices and how this catalogue will fit in with the other activities of INOLINK. A collection of all the Good Practices fact sheets will be presented organised by type and will be the basis of the next INOLINK activity which covers mentoring.
