  10. 10. The contextual analysis • was very appriciated by stakeholders in the region and gave input to a qualified strategic discussion • has been of vital importance when drafting regional strategies for this area of strength • created a deeper understanding of our own cluster which facilitated the discussion of joint activities with the other regions The comparative analysis • was challenging and would have benefited from better analytical competence and limitations to the scope • provided some information useful for smart specialisation strategies but the step to implementation on a transnational level is far away Conclusion
