Sažetak
Due to the decline of the traditional labour- intensive manufacturing as a driver of growth in globalised economy the WBCs’ competitiveness in the long-run and integration with the EU is not sustainable without increasing their abilities for absorption and creation of new technologies. This raises the question of how to improve research and innovation capabilities and competitiveness of WBCs. While some consider that these capacities can be improved through the common programmes for the regional innovation co-operation, others believe that such a top-down policy for encouraging regional cooperation is not only unnecessary but can be even harmful. In order to provide additional inputs for pros and cons regarding regional innovation cooperation, the paper provides a brief comparison of the selected aspects of the innovation systems of WBCs and factors which are perceived as important for better regional innovation cooperation and the science-industry cooperation. The paper also discusses the barriers for WBC’s participation in the EU FP and some common path-dependent impediments to innovation and technological development. The provided data and inputs are based on the results of the WBC-INCO.NET project.
