The main findings of the RICAFE2 project will be presented during this final conference. RICAFE2 is funded under Priority 7 (FP6), "Citizens and Governance in a knowledge based society". The project aimed at developing a comprehensive report on how societal, legal, and economic factors affect the patterns of regional economic growth and how Knowledge-Based Entrepreneurship (KBE) contributes to shifting patterns of regional comparative advantage and to regional growth and social cohesion. The research assessed the links between societal, legal, and economic mechanisms and KBE at micro level, while studying the resulting regional dynamics and growth patterns at macro level. The research team used a cross disciplinary approach to study KBE as a complex, multi-dimensional process. While theoretically grounded, the analysis is mainly empirical and provides a detailed blueprint for the implementation of the Green paper on Entrepreneurship.
