The emergence of new business models based on innovation, cooperation networks, and the enhancement of endogenous resources, are assumed to be a strong contribution to the development of competitive economies and regions.

New contributions are expected as well as cooperative solutions involving local and regional actors from the Academia, Business, Regional and Local Governments, and other representatives of society, opening new cooperation avenues for inter-regional ecosystems in order to achieve new competitive and sustainable levels in the global market.
