Weak Signal's description 
One of the main messages of this report is that policy makers should be clear about the potential impact of research investments and related measures under specific regional techno-economic circumstances and these long term investment decisions should be viewed from a multi-level, multi-actor and multi-sector perspective. This means that research investment in certain regions can have important contributions to national policy goals without making major contributions to regional economic development.
