Past event
The FP7 project INTRAREGIO is organizing the first international conference on “A European research strategy for intermodal transport” which will be held in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on 17th and 18th April 2013. Besides raising awareness and knowledge on the regional situations the event aims at:
  • giving advice to regional authorities and further stakeholders on the coordination of RTD policy development and support the consideration and integration of transport related con-cerns into policies;
  • formulating recommendations to private and public RTD actors on research strategies to be tackled in the future and spread knowledge on successfully developed technologies and procedures for improving transport modes;
  • presenting and debating on successful cluster policies and strong innovation systems supporting the exploitation of re-search results on the market in order to find new approaches for the promotion of innovative activities.

The event will provide also the possibility to attach importance to the needs of the emerging clusters involved in the project that today are characterised by a lesser developed research profile and/ or unsatis-factory economic development and RTD policies.
