A scheme for entrepreneurs in ceramics and other crafts to test and pilot their products and concepts at Taito department at the Finnish Craft & Design Fair
Location: Etelä-Suomi, Finland (Suomi)
Project: CLAY
Lead Partner: Birmingham City University
The objective of the Urban Manufacturing Project is to ensure that collaborative makerspaces thrive.  We achieve this through identifying best practice, testing policy approaches and supporting our cities/regions in creating receptive conditions. Our hope is that we will demonstrate the impact that cooperative facilities can have on innovation and establish a European network of advocates.  WHAT ARE COLLABORATIVE MAKERSPACES?  Collaborative makerspaces take many forms, but common to all is the idea of producing physical objects through cooperation. This sharing can occur during ideas generation or fabrication and is most profound when different sectors come together.  The benefits of working in this way are numerous and include: new and improved products; an enhanced sense of community; increased mutual knowledge; quicker and more comprehensive solutions; and the tapping of latent potential. This leads to more effective and far-reaching innovation. Examples of collaborative makerspaces include Fab Labs, Open Innovation Centres, Living Labs and Cross-Sector Incubators.  Collaborative makerspaces are typically located within urban environments, so understanding the ecosystem – for example the interdependencies between education, policy makers and manufacturers – is of fundamental importance. Through nourishing these connected elements, cooperative facilities can flourish.  Through our partnership, we are analysing the effect of policies across seven related themes: STEAM Communities Ecosystems Funding to support makerspaces Results of investment in makerspaces Routes to market Enterprise We develop our understanding through a process of knowledge sharing.

Evaluation of innovation policy-mixes goes beyond traditional monitoring and innovation systems as it involves evaluating instruments interactions and overlaps from an integrated view. This is a challenge for regions and especially with regards the implementation of their Research and innovation strategies for smart specialization (RIS3), as an innovation policy-mix has to be designed and implemented oriented towards a thematic priority. 4 Regions with Advanced Manufacturing (AM) identified within their RIS3 strategy; The Basque Country, Lithuania, Piedmonte and West Wales and the Valleys have joint the MANUMIX consortium to learn best practices through the exchange of experience in the evaluation and monitoring of their current innovation policy-mixes, a common challenge in the implementation process of RIS3 priorities. The Interregional learning approach of the first phase of the project will have as the main result an ad-hoc action plan for each region to implement. During the second phase of the projects, each partner will monitor the implementation process in the region. The Consortium will have the expert support of Orkestra-Basque Institute of Competitiveness (Deusto Foundation) (Advisory Partner), an institution expert on the study of competitiveness and regional development, that will support all the partners through the learning process, providing advice on the definition of their action plan and further monitorization of the implementation. Thus, the general objective of MANUMIX is to strengthen and improve the effectiveness and efficiency of innovation policy-mixes for AM at regional level through evaluation. This involves evaluating interactions of AM instruments, trying therefore to assess both the complementarities and the overlaps among them. Improving and strengthening the current evaluation systems, partners and later other EU regions will enhance the implementation of regional development policies and programmes that support the delivery of innovation in the AM smart specialization area.

NMP-REG aims at improving regional policies for delivering innovation in NMP to manufacturing by focusing on policy actions that can support it, using a coordinated action from key players. NMP-REG achieves this through exchanging experiences and Good Practices in a context of interregional activities, communication and stakeholder engagement. Partners develop Action Plans that result in improved policy instruments, more and better-targeted funding, with leverage effect in mobilising private funding; new or better models for innovation delivery thanks to cooperation across the regional innovation chain.
