How can we bring about real change in European regions?

Are there new approaches?

Who are the drivers?

Entrepreneurship and innovation experts and political authorities from throughout Europe will discuss new ways to support and to change regional economies and furthermore to train innovation and competitiveness in diversified regions. Three EU-funded projects of the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme, ET-struct, INNOTRAIN IT and i.e. SMART will introduce concrete “catalysts for change”:

  • The Strategic Catalyst – How can regional structures support regional economies?
  • The Infrastructural Catalyst – How can IT Service Management enhance performance?
  • Innovative Catalyst – Is it possible to educate innovation and create a unique, integrated, sustainable regional seedbed for innovation and entrepreneurship?

Two keynote speeches by Sven Tollmien (TrendONE Hamburg) and Christian Weinberger (European Commission, Directorate General for Enterprise and Industry) will connect the topic with a broader perspective on future trends and European policy.
