Regional innovation systems can be found in four of the eleven regions investigated in the REGIS study. These are Baden-Württemberg (Germany), Basque Country (Spain), Styria (Austria) and Wales (UK). Not all are equally evolved and the Basque and Welsh cases are more strongly policy than market driven. Systemic innovation exists strongly at local level in S.E. Brabant (Netherlands) and Tampere (Finland) where regional institutions and organizations are less pronounced than in other cases. In localised innovation systems links are also close with national innovation support organizations.
