Assessment of the Community regional innovation and technology transfer strategies

Funded under: FP5-INNOVATION-SME


On behalf of the European Commission, an evaluation of the first two calls of the RITTS programme in 1994 and 1996 (a total of 42 regions) has been carried out by CURDS and MERIT, in collaboration with PAIR and ÍIR. The aim of this evaluation was to take stock of the results achieved so far within the RITTS programme, in order to diffuse lessons learnt to a wide audience of policy makers.

The first phase of work consisted of the collection and examination of reports and documents prepared within each of the regional projects and the preparation of 42 regional fiches (regional fiches are available in the web-site of Innovating Regions in Europe Network: httg:/ / The second phase of work sought to overcome the gaps in the available information by sending the draft fiches to RITTS project managers for comments; and sending a questionnaire to get the RITTS stakeholders' subjective appreciation of the key elements of the RITTS. The third phase examined good practices through 20 case studies of projects. .
