In the Europe 2020 strategy as well as in long-term policy programmes of regional and local authorities, great importance is given to research and innovation. The EU is putting this priority into an ambitious ‘Common Strategic Framework’ and its budget for 2014-2020, in which the increase for research and innovation is in the order of 46% when compared to the current budget. In the autumn of 2011, the European Commission has adopted its legal proposals for the future EU funding of research and innovation, namely through the structural funds, and Horizon 2020 (the new Framework Programme for Research and Innovation and the new programme replacing the former CIP). Over 300 representatives from local, regional and national administrations, institutions, universities and development agencies met at the above event to discuss the consequences these proposals will have for facilitating better coordination of research and innovation support at local level post-2013. The Forum presented good practice of regional innovation programmes and projects operating under the current funding structures, showcasing how to match EU priorities and programmes with specific territorial challenges. All presentations are available online, and a detailed proceedings report will be published in the beginning of 2012.
