This scoping paper served as an input to feed the debate and provided background to the RIM Plus workshop “Regions, Industry and Advanced Manufacturing” organised by the RIM Plus on 18 March 2014 in Brussels.
The report aims to raise the awareness on advanced manufacturing in EU regions by mapping out the regional policy focus in support of modernisation of industry, providing a picture of what has been done so far and outlining the main lessons learned. It will also shed light on recent developments in support of modern industries and advance concrete suggestions with regard to the potential focus and strategic orientations of future policy responses in regions.
This is a scoping paper. We are looking for inputs from the wider community. If you have any, please contact the authors Jacek Walendowski (firstname.lastname@example.org ) and Lorena Rivera León (email@example.com ).
