Impact of new innovation models on a regional economy
This prospective study took the form of a book entitled ”Wallonie 2.0″, which came out in 2009 and was commissioned by the authorities of Wallonia. It has been led with the trade federation of the Walloon Region (Union wallonne des entreprises).
The minister-president of the regional Walloon governement closely followed the works and took an active role in book promotion.
Some of the in the book developped ideas have inspired a number of major regional players.
Among these ideas, some of them (such as coworking) have been explicitly integrated in the Creative Wallonia regional scheme, a + 100 millions EUR economical plan set up and supported by the Wallonia minister of Economy. x
