D8.52 Report on selected good practice examples of innovation policies, instruments and activities and corresponding adaptation schemes for the WBC

This deliverable outlines the task dealing with the collection, selection and adaptation of innovation measures identified as good practice examples. On the basis of Deliverable D8.50 (collection of 45 good practice examples from EU Member States and the Western Balkans), eight innovation schemes were presented during a First Review Meeting in April 2012 in Tirana (Albania) and discussed with stakeholders from the region. In a Second Review Meeting in April 2013 in Skopje (FYR of Macedonia), four schemes chosen out of these eight measures were looked at in more detail and adaptation schemes in view of a possible implementation were discussed. These four schemes are: Innovation Officer, Strategic Innovation, Innovation Voucher Scheme and Soft Landing Platforms. The results of the First and Second Review Meetings are described in this deliverable. As a follow up, four Task Force Meetings will be organised in the second half of 2013 (Task T8.5). The aim is to draft for each of the four schemes a suggestion for a pilot project for the implementation of the scheme in one of the Western Balkan country or in the region.
