Regionale Innovationssysteme der EU im Prozess der Globalisierung
[Regional EU-Innovationsystems under Transformation in the Process of Globalisation]


  • Christian, Dreger
  • Georg, Erber


The global competition in innovation has significantly intensified over the past decades. New large countries like China, India, Brazil and Russia are challenging the traditional incum-bents like the US, Europe and Japan in this area. By accelerating the integration of the previ-ously predominant national innovation systems towards a European Innovation Union the European Commission is aiming to make significant progress as part of the 2020 strategy. By creating regional innovation clusters, by further international enhancing respective networks with other global innovation centres globally and further specialization of regional innova-tion locations the available capacities in Europe should better utilized and further strength-ened. As a part of the 7th EU-Framework Program the project „Intangible Assets and Re-gional Growth” has made significant contributions through academic research. In particular the creation of innovative milieus in regional innovation systems and the attraction and fur-ther qualification of human capital are key drivers for the success of such locations.
