3. Research-driven clusters: success stories

Georgia Tzenou, EKT/NHRF


  • Regions of Knowledge (RoK)

  • FP7 new regional dimension, under “Capacities”

    Specific Programme CAPACITIES

  • Research Infrastructures

  • Research for the benefit of SMEs

  • Regions of Knowledge: 126 Meuro

  • Research Potential

  • Science in Society

  • Support to the development of coherent research policies

  • International Cooperation

Georgia Tzenou, EKT/NHRF


  • Regions of Knowledge (RoK)

  • Development of regional ‘research-driven clusters’ to:

  • Strengthen regions’ capacity for investing in RTD and carrying out research activities

  • Produce research strategies that contribute to regional economic development

4

Georgia Tzenou, EKT/NHRF


  • Research-driven cluster under FP7-RoK Triple helix:

  • At least one research entity, one business entity and one regional authority from the same geographical region

  • Other actors (consultants, associations, etc.) and actors from different geographical area additionally to triple helix
