  4. 4. Some WIRE2012 Highlights1. Encourage change  Focus on concentration & cooperation & connection;2. Innovation will be at the hearth of European policy  Innovation needs to be at the centre of regional policy making and in public investments (especially public procurement);3. Horizon 2020 means more innovations out of research  Horizon 2020 needs to include a strong regional dimension and this needs to be integrated to cohesion policy instruments in developing a stairway to excellence through capacity building and creating vibrant environments for innovation;4. Member States and Regions need to focus on new innovative openings  Regions must present a robust clear innovation strategy based on Smart Specialisation;5. Societal challenges involve public sector in a new way  Increased focus on demonstration, prototyping, as well as implementing and scaling up societal innovations. This means taking to use new concepts, such as Living Labs.6. Regional innovation platforms  Work place level & work place learning4-5.06.2012 WIRE 2012 4

  10. 10. The Energizing Urban EcosystemsResearch Program• The Energizing Urban Ecosystems is a research program coordinated by RYM (Strategic Centre for Science, Technology and Innovation for Built Environment).• The program realizes the RYM’s strategic research agenda through far-reaching, collaborative and multidisciplinary research work done jointly by companies, universities and research centers.• The research work will be carried out by 20 industrial partners and Aalto University as the main research partner.• The duration of the EUE is 4 years while the estimated research volume (both industrial research and academic research) is € 20 million. 2.1.2012 Markku Markkula Lars Miikki
  11. 11. EUE- Research Program for BuildingEnergizing Urban Future• The research advocates fundamentally new approach in addressing the comprehensive challenge of planning, designing and management of the future urban ecosystems• It is built on progressive visions and key notions on the development of future urban ecosystems, which will enable proactive and effective planning, designing and management of ecologically sustainable, digitalized and innovative living environments with respect to local site conditions, values and culture.• The program focuses on studying the core elements of pioneering urban ecosystems, which can combine advanced technical solutions (engineering, digital, mobile and processes) and complementary social systems (for innovation, learning and accumulation of knowledge) that result in competitive business models and solutions. 2.1.2012 Markku Markkula Lars Miikki
