IN-EUR - Measuring Innovation among EURopean Subregions, is a Regional Initiative Project of the INTERREG IVC Programme which addresses the need for local level strategies to foster innovation and knowledge growth all over the EU.
The overall project objective is to use interregional cooperation to improve quality of innovation policy at local level through sharing, integrating and transferring methodologies for measuring innovation. Through improved innovation policy, based on information gained from a tested methodology and following a result orientated approach, local authorities can avoid duplication, gaps and subsequent  waste of public resources.
The Sub-objectives can be summarized as follows:
  • To share, adapt and apply existing models for measuring local innovation;
  • To enhance local and interregional cooperation on the overall theme and on specific models;
  • To verify the model's effectiveness through extensive local participation;
  • To mainstream the ALBI (Advanced Local Balance of Innovation) model into local policy.
Project Duration: 01/01/2012 – 31/12/2014
