Regional Trajectories to the Knowledge Economy: A Dynamic Model

Regional Trajectories to the Knowledge Economy: A Dynamic Model

Objective

The significance of knowledge for economic activity has grown exponentially since the 1980s. However, there is as yet little understanding of the nature and composition of the knowledge economy, especially at a regional level. The EURODITE project will address this deficiency by examining the dynamics of knowledge in the economies of European regions to inform policies seeking to promote the transition of Europe towards a knowledge-based society. What are the different trajectories towards the knowledge economy? Through what generative and communication pathways does knowledge flow into and within regional economies? An analytical framework will be developed enabling policy-makers to measure the intensity of regional knowledge use, and to identify appropriate practices for different regions given their respective economic base and level of knowledge development'. Complementary training, demonstration and dissemination activities are designed to ensure a high level of communication and take up and validation of the project outputs.'
