Innovation Camp is a co-creation methodology that is being tested and promoted by the S3 Platform as a tool and practice that can be embraced by regions and cities to stimulate the collaboration of actors of the four helixes in an Entrepreneurial Discovery Process. This will be the first experiment fully fledged by a region, Catalonia, which aspires to replicate the methodology across its territory in an effort to migrate from a Triple Helix to a Quadruple Helix model, ambition that motivated the creation of CatLabs: a network and a community of grassroots digital social innovation (DSI) actors.
The second edition of the high-level Smart Regions even will provide the opportunity for stakeholders to share experience of how smart specialisation has been implemented in their countries and regions.

The conclusions of the discussion will be an important contribution to the discussion on the future of Cohesion Policy post-2020.
