The DG Regio and the EU-LAC Foundation have supported, and continue to support, several initiatives in Latin America regarding the definition of RIS strategies, EU-LAC bilateral exchange of experiences, and in a wider sense, projects aimed at strengthening regional innovation systems and improving regional innovation policy. As a further step in this set of initiatives, the general objective of this study is to identify and support the generation of sustainable and socially responsible EU-LAC bi-regional value chains. This opens a vast field for potential long-term win-win partnerships where the EU experience could both be used and recycled. It also would form the basis of better mutual understanding and common practices in terms of economic development and cooperation.
The main objectives of the study are to take stock of existing regional innovation strategies, policies and actions; to considere how regional innovation strategies could contribute to improving sustainable territorial competitiveness in Latin America and to identify new opportunities for EU-LAC cooperation in regional innovation strategies in the territories concerned.
