32 Conclusions(1/3) Addressing Mediterranen issues requires a common effort Capturing the potential of increasing civic participation together with new technology potentials RDI leading to deep societal transformations: from welfare state to a human-centric service society Regional Innovation Strategies must broaden their scope to support this process Blending both technological and social innovation, research processes as catalyst Competitive enterprises embedded in Regional communities and emergent service ecosystems 32

33 Conclusions(2/3) Regions have the greatest share of resources for promoting Territorial Innovation and are where the benefits of Innovation Policies can be most visible. Regions can take a leading, demand-driven role in introducing transversal Innovation Policies, mixing technical and non-technical participation and linking Creative Region strategies to Territorial Innovation (Living Labs). Living Labs co-creation of innovation address all dimensions of Regional Development Policies Living Labs policies provide regional, crossborder and trans-national integration 33

34 Conclusions(3/3) The big global challenges of our time demand mass participation of users/consumers/citizens. Finding solutions requires the pooling of diverse types of knowledge and resources, and harnessing the motivation of millions of individuals and their communities. Technologies are not sufficient to solve the challenges in a sustainable way, user behavior transformation is required and this can be enabled by the Living Lab methodologies. Future Internet technologies, Living Labs and Social Innovation enable Smart Regional and Smart MED cocreationand the creation of the Human Smart City where citizens sense of belonging and identity, wellbeing and togetherness, form a better and happier society. 34
