    Workshop 1: Common themes

    Each country presents its top three themes that are relevant nationally (i.e. in the country where their Park is located), and which could be 'tackled' on their Innovation Park (5X5 minute presentations; UK, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China).  These themes can be provided in advance of the meeting.

    Themes will be 'mapped' and discussed by all partners - can these be distilled to identify 1-3 themes that can be tackled across the Parks Network?
