It uses a mixture of plenary sessions and parallel workshops to encourage participation and ends with a final plenary to bring the day together.
There are up to 6 papers in each of 5 parallel workshops, entitled: Clusters & Innovation (I) and (II), Networks and the Limits to Virtuality, Learning Strategies and Training Infrastructure and The Governance of Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
