The EC has underlined that EU countries have done much to foster knowledge transfer and sharing, also modifying laws and taking new guidelines, but they have limited themselves to acting merely on a national scale. The IKTIMED project promotes an innovative integrated approach for the MED area aimed at improving the openness of the Mediterranean territories’ innovation systems, through the setting-up of new modalities of cooperation among research centers, the public sector and enterprises. The approach is to foster a new way to sustain innovation, through an open, more dynamic MED model of innovation, in which companies can see both “inside-out” and “outside-in”, considering that innovation is ever more based on knowledge of external assets. Cooperation is a way to generate new ideas and bring them quickly to market.more
