Innovation systems in health economies: Regional, transnational and macro-regional cooperation
26 September 2013, Brussels
Innovation and Smart Specialisation are key instruments to shape the future of a Europe that has smart, inclusive and sustainable solutions for societal challenges. From theory to practice, from “Smart Specialisation” to “Smart Implementation”; now it is time to see how these concepts can become a reality and programmes might be implemented to have a sustainable impact.
Regions play a key role in health care delivery and in the process of adopting innovative solutions in the domain of health care. How can regions collaborate on a transnational stage without compromising the interest of the regional stakeholders? Is it possible to create a win-win situation through sharing of innovations on the product-, process- and system level? To address these questions, this workshop (co-organized by ScanBalt HealthPort, Network of German Health Regions (NDGR) and Health ClusterNET) brings together experts from major European initiatives that have developed strategies in this field. One of the major objectives is to surpass existing boundaries and open the way for inclusion of stakeholders outside the traditional health sector.
