Connecting innovation and sustainable development - second Roundtable Report

Connecting innovation and sustainable development - second Roundtable Report

The Centre of Excellence rounded out its 2019 program with a second research roundtable at RMIT University for regional researchers and policymakers.

Dr Elvira Uyarra, visiting from the University of Manchester, presented on mission-oriented policy and its lessons for place-based innovation policy and, specifically, Smart Specialisation initiatives. In the roundtable discussion that followed, participants discussed how the UN Sustainable Development Goals can be used as a framework for place-based innovation policy.

Based on the discussion, the Centre mapped out a potential agenda for its activities in 2020:

Linking regional innovation systems with mission-orientated policy: Reflections on the 2nd Regional Roundtable
