All partners experienced inter-regional co-operation projects, specially in the field of support to innovation.

  • Lorraine, Central Macedonia, Murcia are members of the “Innovative Regions in Europe” network (DG Enterprise).
  • Central Macedonia (leader), Lorraine and NRW are member of VERITE (Virtual environment for innovation management techniques).
  • The Mancomunidad Norte Tenerife was deeply involved in Mundiempresa, a RECITE II project focused on supporting innovation and internationalisation to the benefit of clusters (setting up of a website and management of the communication flows between the 6 project partners). It provided the Mancomunidad with an opportunity of discovering the importance of marketing and technological intelligence for its agro-food sector.
  • Oslo Teknopol was the leading organisation in charge of the RITTS exercise in the Oslo and Akershus Counties. It has led to the implementation of an innovation strategy based on clusters to be supported in the Oslo region.

All partners of STRATINC project have started, alone or in co-operation with others, to think about developing and managing "strategic intelligence" to the benefit of local governance and regional business community. Some have already capitalised on direct experience. In Lorraine, DECILOR is the main example of a "strategic intelligence" instrument developed at a territorial level, directed towards SMEs.
