PILOT TRAINING FOR NATIONAL/REGIONAL AUTHORITIES WITH LOW H2020 PARTICIPATION ON OPTIMISING THE USE OF H2020 IN IMPLEMENTING RIS3
15 Feb 2018S3 Targeted Support
The workshop is organised as part of the activities of the Stairway to Excellence project managed by the DG JRC, in close cooperation with DG REGIO, as a way to maximise the impact of Smart Specialisation Strategies in EU regions and member states and untap the full potential of using EU funding programmes managed at regional, national and EU level.
The event is principally targeting regions with low engagement in H2020. The objective is to explore the potential interest of ESIF Managing Authorities and RIS3 managing agencies on a future pilot training targeted to them, aiming to optimise the use of H2020 in implementing RIS3. This includes acquiring a better knowledge about ways for beneficiaries to become a part of the international networks, the complementary use of ESIF and H2020, the uptake of H2020 and FP7 project results to create investments, and the use of European R&I agendas to position ERDF support within European value chains.
