We will be gathering around the topic of innovation in Transforming City Regions. City regions are major drivers in the global economy, and are themselves transformed by globalizing forces. In this context city regions are making efforts to reinvent themselves as they try to take advantage of the knowledge economy. 

This two-day conference aims to stage a dialogue between innovation researchers, managers and politicians. For researchers this will be an opportunity to present projects and results and interact both with peers and decision makers. Managers and political leaders will be able to learn from each other and familiarize themselves with the research frontier. 

On the first day the conference we will focus on transformation processes in energy cities and their efforts to move towards a more carbon neutral future. What is the role of innovation processes and knowledge institutions?  In the second section we turn to the role of culture in reinventing city regions. What are the effects on economic development, identity and image, and soft institutions like trust and collaboration?

The second day will be devoted to presentation of research, as well as keynote addresses from distinguished academics in innovation research. We aim to attract papers from researchers dealing with innovation and city regions, particularly in the areas noted in the  <http://www.uis.no/conferences/stavanger_innovation_summit/call_for_papers > call for papers section of the website. 

While you are in Stavanger we will take you through nearby fjords and islands for an evening to remember. We will embark upon an hour-long fjord cruise, terminating on the wondrous island garden of Flor og Fjære, where we will enjoy the world's northernmost palm tree island and dinner.
