GROW your REGIOn: Boosting Smart Interregional Collaboration through Clusters

General Information


Boosting Smart Interregional Collaboration through Clusters


We are announcing the upcoming GROW your REGIOn Conference, co-organised by the European Commission's Directorate- Generals for 'Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs' (DG GROW) and for 'Regional and Urban Policy' (DG REGIO), in cooperation with the Valencia Regional Authority, which will take place in VALENCIA, Spain, on November 8th and 9th !

Lessons are drawn on how smart specialisation strategies were used and how clusters have supported growth in Europe's regions.
How to boost smart interregional collaboration through clusters and foster value chain linkages that bring benefits to regions and cities across Europe?

The GROW your REGIOn is an opportunity to:

  • share your smart specialisation and cluster experience and practices;
  • exchange ideas about future actions for smart interregional collaboration; and learn about novel ways of supporting
    innovation and accelerating industrial modernisation and SME growth.

The conference will use an innovative approach, where the audience will be invited to actively contribute, collaborate and co-create, following the first edition from 2015 in Brussels.

The event will host the 2nd Steering team meeting for the qualified thematic partnershipsof the S3P Industrial Modernisation. Invitation only.
