Galilee Regional Innovation Strategy
The Galilee Economic Diversification and Growth Enterprises RIS Programme (GAL-EDGE) aimed to establish a regional innovation strategy, which would increase the competitiveness of the regions and especially of companies/SMEs in the Galilee. This required the creation of a joint functioning innovation system that collaborates with European partners. By sharing experience the planned RIS strategy developed a more sophisticated and applied production and regional economic development.
GAL-EDGE developed a package of incentives encouraging significant business investment in the region to help diversify the economy and stimulate new private sector job creation. The goals of this partnership were to stimulate the transformation of knowledge created by the regional and EU research and enterprises into innovations that build strong local and regional economies, with trans-regional partnerships.
