  1. Innovation and Research within the BSR Strategy To strengthen the innovative capacity and competitiveness within the BSR Sven Gunnar Edlund Senior Advisor VINNOVA (The Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems) Coordinator Research and Innovation within EUSBSR

  2. The EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Macro Region • FOUR OVERALL OBJECTIVES: • To make the Baltic Sea region an environmentally CLEAN place • To make the Baltic Sea region a PROSPEROUS place • To make the Baltic Sea region an ACCESSIBLE and ATTRACTIVE place • To make the Baltic Sea region a SAFE and SECURE place

  3. Actionplan with 15 action areas 7. To exploit the full potential of the region in research and innovationCoordinated by Sweden and Poland

  4. Flagship projects in Chap 7 Research & Innovation

  5. WHY INCREASED TRANSNATIONAL COOPERATION ON INNOVATION WITHIN BSR? • Countries grow with neighbors that grow • Larger Home Market for products, services and knowledge. Specially important for SMEs Most BSR-countries are small with limited resources in a global comparison. But together, BSR are 100 million people with a number of leading companies/universities/clusters • There are potential that BSR can be a global recognized strong environment for research and innovation in a number of areas • Recognized brand names to attractcapital, people and companies Three logics: 1. A stronger value chain can be offered within the macro region 2. A larger critical mass in research and innovation 3. Complementary competences creates innovative capacity

  6. Baltic Sea Region − A global competitive innovation HUB!

  7. BSR STARSVISION 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

  13. Sander van der Molen Lithuanian Innovation Centre LIONS - Developing SME-networking services in the Baltic Sea Region

  14. LIONS • SMEs need to become part of a larger ‘innovation eco-system’ in order to stay competitive and compete globally • Large firms can orchestrate such global ‘innovation eco-systems’ themselves (e.g. SIEMENS, IKEA, NOKIA) • SMEs face barriers in the creation of such innovation eco-systems and need support

  15. BSR Stars - EU 2020; Innovation Union (IU) BSR Stars - applies already now the principles of Innovation Union 2020 - address Grand Challenges - challenge-/demand driven innovation - smart specialization - broad view on innovation. Public actors should be involved - innovation procurement - transnational-/transregional cooperation - “alignment” of programs/instruments/funding

  17. Flagship 7.2 “Create a Baltic Sea Funding for Innovation and Research” Ms. Marie-Louise Eriksson, PhD Business Development Manager Department of Economic Development and Innovation Region Skåne

  18. The Aim of 7.2 BSR Fund To develop financial instruments that promote transnational and transregional innovation and research support the coordination of existing (2007-2013) and new funding (2014- forward) for innovation and research at the EU, national and regional levels as well as private funding EU2020 strategy and the Innovation union strategy

  19. Fundingprinciples- currently no ear-markedfunding to EUSBSR- funding of projects from existing programs- fundingengineeringExperiences so far from fundingengineering; - often, projectrequires 10+ separat decisions to be funded - one No may cause bigdifficulties for the wholeproject - funding programs not used to fund a part of a project - different deadlines for submittingapplications - The total administration volumetends to be huge, due to 10+ different applications and different guidelines and time schedules for reporting

  20. Funding principles during 2014-2020 must make it easier to fund transnational projects in EUSBSR There should be an international dimension/strategy in all programmes and projects. BSR platforms constitute important parts in such international strategies The macro region concept should be integrated in programmes at EU, national and regional level Support the idea of alignment of funding This calls for dialogue and coordination between EUBSR strategy and those responsible for the OPs both within national and territorial structural funds. Ambition: Part of program budgets allocated to transnational/transregional projects

  21. Conclude by citing :A position paper developed by he BSR Stars flagship programme which stresses the importance of the macro-regional approach as part of the implementation of research and innovation policies (e.g. Innovation Union Flagship initiative) and the EU 2020 strategy. Key messages are:Firstly, the macro-regional policy approach has the potential to provide new innovative ways of bringing together resources and capabilities from different countries and building world-class innovation networks and strategic alliances. Secondly, transnational cooperation in innovation can help to build internationally acknowledged innovation hubs that induce brain gain instead of permanently losing expertise to other attractive innovation environments outside of Europe.

  22. Thirdly, transnational cooperation will enable less developed regions to have better access to global value chains and to widen their innovation capacity and pool of R&D. These linkages strengthen also their capacity to utilise EU R&D and other international funding schemes. Fourthly, the macro-regional approach can accelerate the internationalisation of SMEs which seems to be a major obstacle for most EU countries. Our view is that the transnational cooperation can accelerate the internationalisation of SMEs by reducing administrative burdens to join international R&D and cluster projects and by enlarging the home market for SMEs.
