Industrial Technologies for Regional Growth

General Information

Synergies between EU funding for research & innovation and structural funds are essential to develop regional research and innovation capacities, and drive the economic growth in Europe.

The EC is organising a workshop to support this smart specialisation (RIS3) and to encourage dialogue and exchange of ideas between the different stakeholders.

The expected audience are participants in the Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) programme in H2020 and national and regional authorities that deal with the RIS3 and/or the implementation of structural funding.  

Sign up for the workshop and

  • get in-depth examples of good practice
  • collect some concrete recommendations on how to improve synergies between funding programmes at the regional level in the areas of KETs
  • learn more about the main barriers for addressing synergies from H2020 stakeholders and national and regional authorities

This event is associated with the Knowledge Exchange Platform (KEP), a form of cooperation between the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) and the European Commission's DG for Research and Innovation. Its main objective is to present new R&I solutions, innovative products and best practice in response to societal challenges facing local and regional authorities (LRAs) in Europe.
