After an introduction from the Chair offering an overview of the performance of the EU innovation system and the EU “startups revolution”, our speakers presented the final results of an EU survey, implemented in the framework of the Erasmus+ Project DIGIGrent, https://digigrent.eu/, involving a sample of companies (both startups and SMEs) from Greece, Italy, Poland and Spain, for investigating the perceived importance of specific skills in the management, digital and environmental/green domains for boosting company development; and a practical case from a Dutch media cluster exemplifying how the Triple Helix model was operationalized for re-launching the cluster’s competitiveness and grasping the opportunities offered by new media technologies.
