Short Description of the organization

Research Center for Regional Innovation &Entrepreneurship of Shandong Academy of Sciences includes 21 employees among whom nine have doctorate degree in Management Science and Management Engineer, Government administration, Science of Science and S & T Management and S & T philosophy. Its research mainly refers to 3 academic disciplines—-management, economy and public administration, focusing on topics on knowledge, innovation and entrepreneurship. The centre has been engaged in 3 key projects since 2010 when it is founded, developing knowledge in science and technology innovation; regional development and industry economy.
Located in Confucius’ hometown, the Centre also concerns social development, especially social innovation and cultural enterprises. A virtual research group of the Centre has started the exploration in social innovation and Regional development. This has touched many issues: what impacts have been caused by Confucius’ traditional cultural for social innovation? In Shandong is it important and necessary to support Social Innovation Parks? We believe that some answers can be given by this coming FP7 project and do favour of a “social innovation park (SIP)” conception and expect its practice in China.
