The TECHTRANS Blueprint, Transregional integration and harmonisation of technology support mechanism

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

Trans-regional Technology Transfer (TTT) is a crucial but up to now only partly developed instrument for a competitive and innovative ERA. The market for technology and the way technology transfer is done are far from perfect. Insufficient innovation causes a low growth rate for the European Union. Furthermore, fundamental changes are emerging in the way we manage innovation. There is a real need for a future-oriented development of regional innovation policies that will result in a better functioning of TTT.
Regions must work together in order to stimulate higher growth with more and better qualified jobs. However, efficient co-ordination of regional innovation policies, involvement of stakeholders (including consumers), enhancement of innovation networks and hence improved regional co-operation are needed to build future-oriented and competitive regions.
