Hubs, clusters, or technopoles- whatever you call them, these special places are suppose to foster intense collaboration. But are there even more effective collaborative environments, and how would you recognize one?
The Sustainable Innovation Environments workshop held in Bilbao Spain on December 4, 2007 was a success. The day was co-sponsored by DIME & LABEIN Tecnalia. Participants included academics from the EU and abroad; business people from local, national and multinational firms; as well as policymakers from a range of organizations.
There are links to the presentations (to be updated soon) and pictures from the day below. If you would like to receive more information regarding this workshop, or any future workshops, please contact juliel.porter[at]gmail.com (please replace [at] with @). Thank you for your interest.
