Good practice examples of innovation policy approaches and instruments of EU Member States and Western Balkan countries (D8.50; T8.2)

As part of WBC-INCO.NET’s Work Package (WP) 8 on Innovation support, a number of good practice examples of programmes, instruments and measures aiming at supporting innovation activities have been collected and compiled in Deliverable D8.50. The examples are presented in two parts: the first part gives 21 good practices from the EU Member States (especially The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Sweden) and the second part presents 24 practice examples from the Western Balkan countries.

A selection of these examples will be presented and discussed during a High Level Review Meeting on April 4 and 5, 2012 in Tirana/Albania. In order to prepare the Review Meeting, the Working Group of T8.2 (UNU-MERIT, MPI, BMBF and PT-DLR) met in Maastricht on February 15, 2012.
After the High Level Meeting in Tirana in April a second review meeting is foreseen in the FYR of Macedonia in autumn in order to develop adaptation schemes for the good practice examples that could be suitable for an implementation in the Western Balkans.

In order to promote particularly the good practices from the target region of the Western Balkans we decided to present them in a printed booklet and to share them with policy makers all over Europe.
