Application of technology watch methodology for assessment of regional-innovation-policy impact on SMEs

Objective

The INNOWATCH project is intended to develop a tool that allows the assessment of the efficiency and responsiveness of regional innovation policies, both past and on-going, based on technology watch methodologies and specifically oriented towards innovati on impact in SMEs. The final objective is to integrate this tool into the mainstream regional policy-making processes, therefore facilitating the definition of policy guidelines and allowing more effective allocation of public resources. Within this propo sal the assessment tool will be first developed and afterwards implemented in the four partner regions -Comunidad de Madrid (Spain), Sicilia (Italy), Ile-de-France (France) and Poladskie (Poland)-, and a benchmarking analysis based on the regional results obtained will be performed. As an effect of the benchmarking analysis, specific recommendations for regional policies will be performed on the basis of the identified successful actions, regional idiosyncrasies and regional Sustainable Development.
