CORINNA

Start date: September 2004
Finish date: December 2007

The cooperation intensity in the field of technology and innovation in the CORINNA partner regions lacks behind that of other comparable regions. This equally applies to the policy and the individual company level. Various barriers –different governmental structures, regulations, policies and support schemes – hamper cross-border cooperation in technology and innovation. The project will address key barriers for cooperation in specific sectors and join efforts to overcome them.

The overall objective of the CORINNA project is to develop the regions’ innovation systems by stimulating cross-border cooperation in technology policy and company innovation efforts.
The project aims to increase the mutual knowledge of the partner regions’ innovation systems, policies & strategies in order to get stronger coherence in the regions’ approaches; aims also to find best practices of promoting regional innovation potential and develop cross-border cooperation in fields of common technological strengths complementarities that will be identified in the project.
