Introduction
This paper outlines an approach to the analysis of policy, regulation and governance conditions that can facilitate and extend practices of Open Innovation (OI). The approach stems from several streams of research currently underway at the European Institute of Interdisciplinary Research (EIIR) that address trajectories related to the development of the Future of the Internet. The approach is designed to identity and evaluate key enablers of, and barriers to, OI specifically framing them in ways that make them subjects for policy and regulatory action, along with the modalities of implementation, specifically the identification of the key actors/decision-makers/stakeholders, as well as the institutional vehicles, whose engagement and involvement is deemed critical for the design and implementation of OI initiatives.

Abstract
This White Paper constitutes the concluding document of the EFFORT project. It presents the key policy and research recommendations that emerge out of the different streams of research and stakeholder engagement of the project. It identifies the domains for intervention in terms of policy, law and regulation, technology, and governance at EU, national and regional levels for the facilitation of extended and dynamic clustering. It offers ‘parametric' reflections and recommendations on each of these domains at the level of the unit of analysis of the EFFORT project, namely, cluster and cross-regional extended and dynamic clustering.

Abstract
In the emerging new economy, innovation constitutes the foundation of the competitiveness and value-creation capabilities of economic organizations. Innovation has emerged as a strategic issue because of the disarticulation of established economic and social structures and processes that the knowledge-driven economy and society bring in their path. However, innovation is not something happening “inside” organizations but rather at the networked interfaces of organizations with the business, regulatory, and institutional environments within which they operate. The process of innovation is increasingly driven by open-source networks of cooperation and involves dynamic interrelationships between technological transformations, organizational capabilities of firms, and public institutional and regulatory structures supportive of innovation and entrepreneurship.

Regional Strategies Study on the Automotive SectorSpecialisation, Regional Clusters and Competitiveness: Regional Strategies Study on the Automotive Sector

Publication Date: June 2007

Abstract
The Specialisation, Regional Clusters and Competitiveness: Global Challenges Regional Strategies project undertaken in collaboration with the OECD and the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth (NUTEK) is designed to increase understanding on how the competitive advantages of regions in different sectors and industries contribute to the overall regional economic performance, whether public policy should be trying to support or develop such specialisations and, if so, how. The specific aim of the project is to compare how regions sharing diverse institutional, policy and regulatory structures, technologies, infrastructures and market orientations are reacting to the challenges of apparently homogenizing globalisation and changes in production systems, and the steps they are taking to preserve or transform their current regional economic "portfolios".
