The LARS project is looking for improvements supporting innovation in public sector policies.
LARS project partners have selected important or emerging value chains for their innovation strategies, analysed the selected value chains and their relevant stakeholders, conducted surveys on connectivity and functioning of the innovation networks, and organized focus group meetings to verify and discuss findings through structured dialogues.
This report describes, analyses and compares the findings of surveys based on the interviews made by LARS partners. The comparative analysis is based on the numerical data delivered in the partner reports. Data contains 141 interviews with carefully selected companies, public organisations, universities and NGOs. This is supplemented with qualitative analysis from interviews, partner reports and focus group meetings, where the quantitative data were verified by the informants, explanations of findings were discussed, and seen in context with outcomes of stakeholder and value chain analysis.
