One of the networking activities of the Regional Monitor (RIM) Plus are the visits to regions that are undertaken by regional correspondents. The objective of the visits is two-fold. Firstly, to promote RIM Plus activities and raise awareness among the regional policy makers about how they can use the RIM Plus services. Secondly, regional visits aim to collect and gather relevant information about regional innovation policies and most recent developments. This series of short regional visits reports provide a brief snapshot of the landscape of regional innovation in twenty-four European regions, the latest developments in the governance structure of innovation policies, as well as the ongoing efforts of the regional stakeholders towards smart specialisation strategies and towards updated planning for 2014-2020. The visits were undertaken from March to September 2013.
