Given its experimentalist and result-oriented approach, the Smart Specialisation policy concept places a strong emphasis on the role of monitoring within the policy cycle. Monitoring refers to a set of activities regarding the ongoing, systematic collection and elaboration of information to assess progress towards the achievement of policies' intended results and outputs. Monitoring information should be used to enhance policy performance and inform future decision-making processes.
This Workshop is organised in the context of 2018 European Week of Regions and cities
The Smart Specialisation Platform on Energy (S3PEnergy) of JRC was launched in May 2015 as a joint initiative of DG REGIO, DG ENER and JRC, with the main objective of supporting the effective uptake of the Cohesion Policy funds for energy as well as to help regions in the implementation of their smart specialisation strategies.
This conference offers a comprehensive picture of the smart specialisation policy experience, including an evaluation of its early results, and highlights recent developments both conceptually and empirically. Particular attention will be given to implementation challenges and ways to address them, as well as to methodologies for impact assessment. In addition, the conference will explore how smart specialisation engages with global value chains and production networks, and how firms, regions and cities can benefit from relationships across the borders.
Creating value together - Towards business partnerships between social economy and traditional enterprises03/07/2018
Social economy enterprises and traditional, for-profit enterprises collaborate in many ways. Together, they can co-create value for both partners and become a real source of jobs and social impact in Europe. Yet, the potential of value creation through collaboration between these two types of enterprises is not fully exploited.
The Working Committee consists of all regions participating in Agri-food thematic partnerships and as a result, this Working Committee Meeting in Seinajoki brough together the European Commission services and representatives of all Agri-Food thematic partnerships. Over 50 regional stakeholders discussed the implementation of the Platform's activities while focusing on practical and methodological ways to resolve current and potential issues, and provide strategic guidance. This meeting took place in Seinajoki, Finland on 11th June 2018.
Experienced practitioners from the national and regional level will provide insightful feedback of their S3 implementation experience to date and will reflect together on better RIS3 design for the upcoming programming period
