The Regional Specialised Observatories Network is a systemic tool to encourage interdisciplinary cooperation between the key participants of the regional innovation system in order to build the competitive advantage of the region. The network responds to the region’s requirements by creating a modern tool to monitor the effects of the pro-technological development of the region in particular areas of technology, established in the Technological Development Strategy (TDS) for the Silesian Voivodship for the years 2010-2020, which is a constituent of the Regional Innovation Strategy. The observatory network will concentrate on collecting and processing specialised knowledge in the areas of technology in accord with TDS, monitoring technological and economic trends and assessment of the endogenous technological potential of the Silesian Voivodship. The network’s operation, through the link to the regional observatory as well as to national initiatives, will stimulate many forms of cooperation and contribute to the bonding of economic circles, innovators, science and research centres, the regional government and authorities responsible for drawing up and implementing development policy. The Regional Specialised Observatories Network is an open structure geared towards collecting, processing and publicising specialised knowledge, being a trustworthy source of data and information on technological areas in the region. The article presents the Network’s impact on identifying challenges and technological trends in reference to the region’s potential.
