Abstract: The paper discusses the application of a management model based on best practices related to scientific, technological and innovation-oriented collaborative issues among institutions and companies, focusing on human capital management and structural capital management. These two kinds of capital are extracted from the organisation value model. It is worth noting that they allow defining all legal and intellectual portfolios, and technological assets, which are required for innovation support, and, therefore to making run the NITs.

Keywords: innovation system; regional clusters; intellectual property; legal services.
