These city regions are characterized by a high degree of urban density and deep and fast growing innovation ecosystems. This session is focused on describing what distinguishes innovation ecosystems and the elements that contribute to their growth. Government policy and progressive city planning including the development of innovation hubs can play an important role in facilitating linkage across the innovation ecosystem.
