The Innovating Regions in Europe (IRE) Network will be holding a training session on regional innovation policy in Madrid, Spain, from 16 to 18 April.

The aim of the training session, which is organised in collaboration with Fundación Madri d, is to give participants a comprehensive overview and understanding of the complete innovation
policy cycle from design to implementation and follow-up. While providing concrete knowledge, it will also challenge participants’ views on innovation policy and encourage debate and
reflection.

The event targets staff of regional authorities, regional development agencies and non-governmental organisations who wish to improve their knowledge and understanding of innovation policy.
