Diogenes presents as part of the SMILIES project Conference held in Cyprus. The Conference was organized by Cyprus partner Larnaca District Development Agency (ANATEL).

SMILIES proposes to apply the “Trans-local Innovation System” concept which links innovation and internationalisation policies to boost regional competitiveness to develop a governance model for MED islands’ industrial innovation development. SMILIES will organise focused actions in concrete cases on the field, from which sustainable policies for islands’ industrial innovation will be defined.

The SMILIES workplan follows a 30-month phased schedule, including a pilot phase. Pilot projects’ profiles will be selected after a contextual analysis of 6 opportunity scenarios of use of industrial innovation (to benefit from Tourism, Retail, Agro or Building activities, global niche markets or poorly-served local needs).

End results are context and impact analysis tools for setting priorities of MED-Islands industrial innovation regional policies and a sustainable infrastructure and tools to support innovation transfer to entrepreneurs in projects that fit such policies
