Abstract

The European Commission, DG XIII, has published a call for proposals for the specific programme for the dissemination and optimization of the results of activities in the field of research and technological development including demonstration (INNOVATION), 1994-1998.

The purpose of the call is to invite the submission of proposals for support actions for science parks to strengthen the professionalism of their operators, to encourage the exchange of know-how and to develop international relationships, and accompanying measures. Support actions for science parks have two components:

- The validation scheme aims at improving the definition and setting up of new or extended local technology initiatives such as science, research or technology parks, business and innovation centres, local technology resource centres, or the networking thereof by giving their promoters access to international expertise;
- The auto-evaluation scheme is addressed to the same group of initiatives, albeit mature ones. It is meant to help their managers introduce evaluation and monitoring techniques in their management practices and thus contribute to better fulfil their objectives as well as to allow dissemination of good practices and to enable international comparisons.
