An analysis of drivers, barriers and readiness factors of EU companies for adopting advanced manufacturing products and technologies
Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (AMT) are key to industrial competitiveness, growth and job creation in Europe. This study identifies the main reasons for their adoption by companies: reducing production costs, improving the quality of products and services, improving the firms’ employees’ productivity and reducing production lead time. It shows that the uptake of these technologies creates benefits to SMEs from a not only technological but also economic perspective.
Industry Global Value Chains, Connectivity and Regional Smart Specialisation in Europe. An Overview of Theoretical Approaches and Mapping Methodologies.
TODEVA Emanuela, RAKHMATULLIN Ruslan
This document is the second paper in a series of three papers on Global Value Chains (GVCs), developed under the auspices of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission. It provides a clear understanding and comparison of existing theories and methodologies for mapping value chains and offer a demonstration of the use of such methodologies in the context of S3 and strategic interventions at regional, national and cluster level. The paper provides an overview of five distinctive theoretical frameworks to global value chain research, and related to them methodologies for mapping GVCs, and analysis of patterns of industry diversification and integration.
Global Value Chains Mapping: Methodology and Cases for Policy Makers. Thematic Work on Value Chain Mapping in the Context of Smart Specialisation
TODEVA Emanuela, RAKHMATULLIN Ruslan
This is the 3rd paper in a series of work on Global Value Chains (GVCs), developed under the auspices of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission. It builds upon the theoretical discussion presented in the first two papers and offers a new methodological approach for mapping GVCs, using a dataset of the most innovative biopharma MNEs.

Thematic Work on the Understanding of Transnational cooperation and Value Chains in the context of Smart Specialisation.
Jens Sörvik and Alexander Kleibrink
This report describes how the ICT monitoring tool works, how it was developed and makes an initial analysis of planned ESIF investments in ICT using the tool. It points to that ICTs not only constitute an important sector themselves, but are also an important enabler of other sectors. This is why, analysis of ESIF data on planned ICT investments show EUR 12.2 billion encoded in the dedicated TO, but when ICT categories in other TOs are included, this amount almost doubles, to EUR 21.4 billion.
