POLICY ANSWERS participated in a UN-ECE Transformative Innovation Network meeting

The network was introduced by UN-ECE and the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) to stakeholders on 20-21 September 2023 in Przno, Montenegro.

It aims to create value through supporting evidence-based analysis and sharing of experiences to promote innovative processes, increase competitiveness, and accelerate societal transformation (in line with the Agenda 2030).

Elke Dall, POLICY ANSWERS coordinator participated in a panel related to implications for governance and policy. Our partner, Katarina Krceva spoke in the session “Transformative Innovation and its Importance in the Past, Present, and the Future”. Further speakers and information about the interactive session on Day 2 are available in the attached documents.

ETIN is a strategic platform and meeting place for peer learning, collaboration and a joint exploration of policies and practices that, through evidence-based analyses and shared national and international experiences, create value for its affiliated stakeholders in their effort to promote innovative processes to increase competitiveness and accelerate a sustainable transformation of societies in the UNECE region.

The project is a joint initiative between United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the German Federal Agency for Disruptive Innovation (SPRIND) and is funded by the German Government (BMWK). More information about seminars, policy dialogues, and study tours around the topics transformative innovation can be found on the website: https://unece.org/eci/icp/ETIN

At the event, the potentials and usefulness of a regional “Innovation Policy Outlook” (IPO) was discussed. Such a publication provides a comprehensive assessment of innovation policies, identifying best practices and areas for improvement. By offering comparative analysis and
recommendations it is an instrument to enhance economies’ innovation policy and performance, foster sustainable development, and boost competitiveness on the global scale. It is an existing flagship that could be applied to the Western Balkans and may support Western Balkan policy
makers to identify the critical instances and pursue the policies and measures necessary to support transformative innovation (for more details, please see the attached documents).
