Interventions from the floor
A functional relation can be established between specific approaches, modalities and sets of tools and activities in given areas or sectors and the establishment of enabling conditions for inclusive innovation and / as a driver of sustainable competitiveness of countries or regions. This can apply at different geographical scales and vary extensively to encompass the specific object and content of economic activities in a particular sector, as much as alternative organizational and business models and modalities.

Possible catalysts for innovation include – but are obviously not limited to – green economy and renewable energy systems, business clustering, social and solidarity economy, corporate social responsibility, knowledge management and (through) cooperation.
