Smart Specialisation: monitoring and evaluation State of the play and next steps

24/01/2019 24/01/2019
Given its experimentalist and result-oriented approach, smart specialisation places a strong emphasis on the role of monitoring and evaluation. Throughout the years, the JRC has developed a solid framework for monitoring, in response of a very strong demand from national and regional authorities. As the end of the programming period approaches, it is time to debate on the state of the art of monitoring activities and how to evaluate S3. In order to address these aspects, it is necessary to build a space for communication between researchers and practitioners, based on shared empirical and conceptual ground. This document proposes the agenda for one workshop aimed at strengthening such common space.
