Dear readers,


In this 18th issue of KNOW-HUB's newsletter, we highlight DG Enterprise & Industry's informal call for expressions of interest for model regions for smart specialisation and cluster strategies. Interested regional organisations are invited to submit by 12 May 2014.


We highly recommend reading OISPG's White Paper on Open Innovation 2.0 and McKinsey's report on Shaping the future of manufacturing.


The KNOW-HUB team hopes you enjoy this newsletter and will continue to read through further issues and forward them to anyone you know who may be interested.
