The project involved research on the experience of strategic RTD planning in four case study regions (Flanders, Bremen, North-East England and Northern Sweden). The four regions had in common the design and implementation of EU-funded Regional Innovation and Technology Transfer Strategies (RITTS). An assessment of the key factors relating to the process of regional level strategic planning and the relationship between national and regional level bodies in this policy area formed the basis of conclusions and recommendations for Austria.
