Guiding investments in place-based development. Priority setting in regional innovation strategies

S3 Working Paper Series no. 13/2018 Günter Clar
This report sets out to synthesise the dispersed knowledge on a range of issues relevant for the success of priority setting processes and practices in innovation policies and strategies. Outlining changing contexts, rationales and approaches of priority setting in Research and Innovation policies leads to the “new prioritisation logic” guiding RIS3 exercises. This is followed by two main lines aiming to facilitate improved priority setting: better understanding the wider innovation policy context of RIS3, and making better use of Strategic Policy Intelligence and other support tools (including learning from private sector strategies) to structure and guide policy cycles, and to implement place-appropriate policy mixes. Evidence on effective priority setting processes in RIS3-type exercises and policy recommendations complete the report.

Workshop on regional heating and cooling priorities and financing in the framework of the Smart Specialisation Platform (S3P-E H&C)

EUR - Conference and Workshop report by the Joint Research Centre BOZA-KISS Benigna, CARLSSON Johan, JIMENEZ NAVARRO Juan Pablo, BERTOLDI Paolo
The report collects and summarises the content presented and discussed during the workshop on Smart Specialisation on Heating and Cooling, held in May 2018. This workshop was organised by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC). It gathered 40 participants including regional representatives and experts in the heating and cooling field. The workshop offered the possibility of discussing how to achieve effective regional heating and cooling planning and how to fund projects by the uptake of the European Structural and Investment funds. Different examples were presented to inspire new projects in other regions. These examples tackled different aspects including technical, economic and social. After the workshop regions are willing to collaborate further and they found interesting synergies with the ongoing partnerships in the Smart Specialisation Platform on Energy (S3PEnergy).
