Second International Workshop

Salford University, Manchester, UK


The MAPS-LED Second International Workshop is a milestone of the wider MAPS-LED project. It took place during the International Research Week hosted by the University of Salford (SOBE partner of the MAPS-LED project) between the 11th and 15th of September 2017. The aim of the workshop was to disseminate the results of the research activities – conducted in Boston and San Diego- and enhance the potential impact of the research by involving external experts and potential local users in the mid-term assessment stages of the research process. The research activities focused on the urban dimension of innovation and how public policies support local innovation ecosystems and entrepreneurial knowledge within the (local) clusters. These elements play a central role in US socio-economic and physical transformation, favoring knowledge-based urban regeneration processes. This new approach was outlined by the MAPS-LED experienced and early stage researchers’ contributions and presentations during the Workshop, which saw the participation of the MAPS-LED project partners, the international academic community and local and national stakeholders from the United Kingdom and other EU countries.
