Competence-based Postgraduate course for policy officers on Innovation and Territory
Secretariat for Regional and Administrative Development (SUBDERE) Chile
In 2012-2013 I have the inspiring experience of being the coordinator of blended professional course for more than 80 academics and R&D regional officers of 14 Chilean regions. The main area of interest are regional system of innovation and policy instruments. The initiative was part of the Proyecto RED (2010-2013) by which the EU supported Chilean government and regions to develop regional innovation polices through the use of the EU RIS methodology, currently Smart Specialization Strategies (RIS3).
Organization of intensive workshops designed with techniques to foster networking, collaboration and problem solving mechanism. With that respect, one of the most interesting challenge was the application of Dutch techniques to fostering dynamics among groups of participants from very different Chileans regions. Nice experience
