Peer eXchange and Learning (PXL) workshop on the entrepreneurial discovery process (EDP)

General Information

The S3 Platform is organising its second Peer eXchange and Learning (PXL) workshop on entrepreneurial discovery process (EDP), based on the demands received thorough the "Call for Expression of interest" we launched last November 2017. This second PXL workshop will be focused on "entrepreneurial discovery process" and is planned for 8 March 2018 in Magdeburg. 

The workshop will be based on the PXL methodology developed by the S3 Platform over the past years (more information on the methodology can be found here)

The PXL exercise will focus on experiences and challenges associated to the operationalisation of the EDP process during the RIS3 implementation. Saxony-Anhalt (DE), North Karelia (FI), Estonia and Jämtland Härjedalen (SE) will provide a short account of their experience so as their most challenging and succesful elements of their EDP. Through experience exchanges, comments and suggestions from JRC staff, peers and experts, regional and national authorities are expected to identify possible solutions to their challenges. The workshop will also intend to provide all participants an opportunity for raising issues, providing feedbacks, networking and learning from others.

Entrepreneurial Discovery Process: topic framing

This session aims at introducing the concept and practice of the Entrepreneurial Discovery Process. The different strands of work developed in DG JRC, in the S3 Platform and the activities of Targeted Support will be presented. In particular, this session will:

  • describe how the EDP has evolved from a “one-off” process to a continuous one, to be embedded in the implementation of RIS3;
  • provide examples of how the EDP is being embedded in policy instruments in RIS3 implementation;
  • describe the organisation and impact of EDP processes organised in the countries involved in the project “Targeted Support for Lagging Regions”.
