Learning From Practice Learning From Practice

In this section of the S3 Platform website, you will find a collection of examples of S3 implementation from regions and countries across Europe. The examples represent insightful practical experiences and show effective ways to tackle specific problems and challenges taking into account the context, resources and institutional settings characterising each region and country. The examples are grouped around five main topics:


- Entrepreneurial discovery process (EDP) cycle

- Good governance

- Project selection: criteria and processes

- Transnational cooperation and value chains

- Monitoring


Under each of the above topics, examples are further organised according to the most common challenges policy-makers face during the S3 implementation process. Each individual example reports a brief description of the challenge, followed by a concise explanation of what the region or country has done in order to tackle it. Finally, the example sheets are complemented by relevant links to official documents and resources.

You have the possibility to comment on the examples by leaving a message, using the comment function at the bottom of each page.

We also encourage you to submit new examples you deem interesting and relevant by emailing us at: jrc-ipts-s3platform@ec.europa.eu
