11 OSKE main factors Durable, long term policy commitment of Government Focus on world class expertise Competitive tendering: state basic funding as catalyst and status Recognizing the regional needs and opportunities National co ordination Specialization between regions and increase of critical mass in R&D Public private partnership at regional level

12 OSKE partners at regional level Joint strategy OSKE connects different innovation policy actors

13 Lessons of Silicon Valley for other regions by Professor Annalee Saxenian Create forums for dialog across sectors Public and private sectors Educational institutions and industry Finance, manufacturing and service sectors Support inter-firm collaboration Build bridges with overseas communities

14 OSKE Centre of Expertise Programme Centre of Expertise Programme is a governmental programme promoting commerzialisation of knowledge and know-how To make innovation environments more attractive, To create internationally competitive centres of expertise To facilitate the emergence of new enterprises and jobs, and the renewal of business operations To recognise and create new business opportunities emerging at the interfaces between competence sectors and industries

15 OSKE s strategic choices for Regional approach cluster approach Attactive innovation environments Industrial renewal International networks and partnerships Foresight activities Growth oriented, international business Business intelligence and demand driven innovations Cross sectoral and cross cluster collaboration 15

19 Government s catalytic basic funding Total project funding (EU, national): 535 million euros OSKE basic (government) funding: 40 million euros

20 Direct impacts of OSKE in / new high-skill jobs 272 new high-tech businesses 1115 new innovations (products, concepts) 373 new networks people trained companies involved in OSKE functions in 2010

21 (Regional-based) Innovation hubs and ecosystems

22 Global networking in value creation Value chains are becoming specialized and distributed all over the world Resources are globally usable (R=G) Companies are increasingly outsourcing their RDI Resources are concentrating into certain knowledge hubs or innovation centers These centers are globally collaborating Innovation centers provide world-class ecosystems for innovation Competition is taking place between ecosystems

23 An emerging framework for innovation: Global networks of knowledge hubs Complementary skills, knowledge and production Hub Ecosystem Local innovation center Specialized knowledge hub Brain circulation Hub Ecosystem Collaboration Digital networking Knowledge transfer Hub Ecosystem Source Professor Antti Hautamäki: Sustainable innovation, 2010

24 Example of transnational clustering: BSR STARS BSR Stars purpose is to create a number of world leading innovation hubs in the Baltic Sea region by linking strong Research & Innovation milieus, Clusters and SME networks

25 Value add of Trans/international Clustering Better access to global value chains Widening the innovation capacity of less developed Provides new business opportunities for SMEs and accelerates their internationalisation! More efficient use of regional and national R&D&I funding through shared efforts Better access to EU and other international R&D funding

26 Concluding remarks Conflicting interests between the regional development and supporting the exploitation of top expertise. -> Balancing regional and innovation policy objectives needed Cluster based model has been very successful in combining the regional strengths and smart specialisation but, it may also be a hindrance for renewal of industries in the region (lock-in situation) Future perspective: Focus on thematic networks and global value chains Cross-sector and cross-cluster cooperation is needed!
