Tasks of the mirror group
The mirror group has an advisory role on the works of the Commission services related to smart specialisation, including the S3 Platform, particularly with regard to general conceptual and methodological issues concerning RIS3, including policy tools.
Conceptual and methodological issues also include development of synergies between the policies involved support to the development of guides for the improvement of the delivery instruments.
It also acts as a discussion forum on the different dimensions of smart specialisation on the basis of documents and presentations provided/delivered by its members and other bodies such as the OECD and the World Bank and the Commission services.
In more general terms, the Mirror Group has the objective of helping the European Commission build capacity at different institutional levels across Europe to design and implement RIS3 and digital growth strategies and of acting as ambassadors of the concept in several fora and policy discussions.
