Abstract

New ways of thinking are needed for dealing with European challenges. This means that traditional problem solving methods are no longer sufficient. Cities and regions have become the new powerhouses for progress and societal innovation: they can and must benefit greatly from open innovation ecosystems and they need to take a new orchestrator role in this field.
