European Regions Research and Innovation Network
ERRIN was founded in 2001 as an informal network and is now an established platform based in Brussels, comprising more than 130 regional stakeholder organisations from 24 European countries, most of which are represented in Brussels by offices. ERRIN members are mainly regional authorities, universities, research organisations, chambers of commerce and clusters. They set the agenda and priorities of the whole network by taking an active role in the working groups or in the Board of Directors.
In 13 working groups, ERRIN cooperates in a very comprehensive way with representatives* from research and innovation to develop further cooperation approaches and to promote the importance of regional innovation systems.
