The workshop offered an opportunity for the industry, research & innovation sectors, regional authorities and other stakeholders to exchange good practices and innovative concepts supporting S3 and energy policy in the Baltic region.
The event was organised by the Joint Research Centre – Directorates C (Energy, Transport and Climate) in the framework of the Smart Specialisation Platform on Energy (S3PEnergy). Close collaboration of the Latvian Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Riga Technical University made of this event a key step towards interregional cooperation on smart specialisation priorities related to Smart-Grids.
