3rd Study Visit of RECORD project took place last June 17th-19th. The meeting in Pistoia aimed to stimulate interaction and collaborative job among the participants. Online polls and "World Cafe discussion" brought Partners and stakeholders - represented by 24 companies from 3 countries - to discuss topics going from "why innovate" to the main obstacles to innovation and what should be done to deliver more opportunities through policies and other actions.

Collaborative discussions included the hottest innovation topics and how to support trans-regional collaboration activities among the Partners' stakeholders - namely companies and research organisations - as possible "spin-off" of the RECORD project.
