Access Creative MED Toolkit

The Creative MED Toolkit aims at:

  • Defining a set of indicators, in coherence with the CreativeMed model and the availability of information at the regional level, in order to detect the regional conditions for the development of a Mediterranean way of innovation. This model maintain the evidence base of the individual activities carried out while deriving bottom-up a strategic framework at a level that is compatible with what policy makers need to do to define and carry out a Smart Specialisation Strategy.

  • Enabling comparison at different levels, from the reality of similar regions, according to their structural similarity (Navarro et al., 2014) to the whole Med regions , national states and Europe.
  • In this comparative context, detecting the strengths and weaknesses of the region in the variables of the preconditions and the dimensions of CreativeMed model.
  • Establishing a synthetic diagnosis.
  • Building a library of specific interventions from both the capitalization of successful project experiences with other good practices
  • Suggesting a battery of interventions from the diagnosis results.
  • Showing the consistency of regional strategies RIS3according to the CreativeMed model approach.

Toolkit

To translate this methodological approach to a set of tools, indicators and tools for possible intervention on a specific region, first it´s necessary to have a territorial analysis model which enables us a benchmarking exercise.. With the aim of reaching the objectives of the Europe2020 Strategy, the European Commission has conditioned the disbursement of European Regional Development Funds under the thematic objectives most directly related to research and innovation, on the existence of RIS3. These are defined as integrated, place-based economic transformation agendas that focus policy support and investments on key challenges and needs for knowledge-based development, building on national/regional strengths, competitive advantages and potential for excellence (European Commission, 2012).   What we propose to the MED regions is a first analysis about the necessary Preconditions to be in contexts where it is possible to activate this Mediterranean Way to Innovation.
