Project ID: 230118

Abstract

This is the periodic report of IREGIONS, a project which addresses the challenges of the net society and net economy by providing a strategy aiming at maximising the benefits of research infrastructures for regional economic development within the following technological clusters: CyberForum (Germany), Kista Science City (Sweden), Tartu Science Park (Estonia). The concept relies on following cornerstones:
- Living labs will enable the IREGIONS to become pilot regions for the creation of new services, technologies and business models of the net economy.
- Leading edge projects will lead to the development of pioneering innovations and the creation of new markets.
- Ecosystems for growth will favour strong interaction between research, business and local authorities for the benefit of companies' growth and economic development.

The report explores in detail the components for ecosystems of growth such as: Networking partnerships, living labs and business incubators. It also outlines the joint action plans of the partners of the project.
