Currently I am attending an interesting workshop organized by the 6CP with the support of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy. The 6CP celebrates its 40th anniversary which makes 6CP the world’s oldest international innovation policy network. 6CP was established to create opportunities for mutual learning between international peers in policymaking, research and industry. And it still offers these opportunities. The workshop is another marvelous example for that: Open and controversial discussions on the future of innovation policy and plenty of time to meet colleagues and engage in building new networks.
