16th edition Regional Innovation Policy Conference 2022
22-24 September, Padova

The literature on regional innovation has been increasingly focused on improving the quality and sustainability of innovation as well as its intensity. The global challenges raised by the objective of meeting the Sustainable Development Goals ask for an investigation of the drivers of a responsible and sustainable innovation process in clusters and regions. Policymakers are called to enrich the smart specialization framework with new guidelines able to inspire radically new technological trajectories addressing environmental and social inclusiveness. From this perspective, incentives for breakthrough inventions as well as exaptation opportunities may be boosted throughout different forms of collaboration and networking activities inside and outside regional innovation systems, also strengthening the linkages between advanced and developing regions.
