Aurora provided external expertise on inter regional exchange, information, communication and dissemination to CLIQ which aims to look at the role of local authorities in the Quadruple Helix Innovation Model. The project had 16 partners from 10 different countries and Aurora’s role was to facilitate a cumulative learning process whereby each individual element of the project builds on previous knowledge and results are communicated in a sophisticated yet accessible way. As part of the CLIQ Team we supported the organisation and leadership of inter regional exchanges and we collated project results into a Toolkit, Blueprint and Benchmarking Methodology. We also designed a project case study template and supported partners to collate 26 case studies. We co-organised the CLIQ Summit and Final Event which took place in the Committee of the Regions in September 2011. As part of our commitment to “walking the talk” we used a range of innovative presentation techniques including the CLIQ Play – four minutes, four actors, four acts.

“I have come to know Alison in a large European project where we worked together in a core team of 4. It was a pleasure to work with her from the beginning. Creative solutions to all issues and many problems encountered, excellent work ethos, great communications skills … and besides the “serious business” we also had great fun! No doubt her contribution was very valuable, and most important in view of our successful completion of the project”
