Know-Man conference is coming

Alpha LingmindThe Know-Man project will present its results at an international conference in July 2011. The conference will not only present tools for regional network management (e.g. Knowledge Atlases, Demand Analyses and Benchmarking), but it will also further highlight policy implications that address the demands for closer academic-economic-public cooperation. There is no workshop fee for participants, but we do ask that you register on our webpage at www.rra-koroska.si/know-man. After the registration, we will send you regular updates and the outline of the conference proceedings.

What is Know-Man?

Know-Man is an INTERREG IVC Project aiming to improve regional development and spatial innovation policies by using tools of regional Knowledge Network Management. With this aim, 15 partners from six European regions have joint their forces to improve the regional cooperation between public authorities, the research community and innovative small and medium sized enterprises. Know-Man implements Knowledge Management instruments (e.g. knowledge atlases, benchmarking, action reviews) to identify and connect regional cross-sectoral and cross institutional knowledge potentials within the participating regions. The focus of this project lies on triple helix structures – the interconnection between public authorities, economic actors represented by technology parks, and academic representatives to create links between regional endogenous potentials in the knowledge economy. Know-Man specifically intends to improve policies in favour of innovative SMEs.

What is INTERREG IVC?

The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.
