New Report Out! The role of Open Data, Open Science and Open Innovation in S3 monitoring

This document reports the key outcomes of the study on the use of open data, open science & open innovation (ODSI) for S3 (Smart  Specialisation Strategy). The study was commissioned by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) to SIRIS Academic and implemented, in a collaborative fashion, from May to December 2019.

The report has been produced as part of the “Lagging Regions” project of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre.   Implementing a Preparatory action of the European Parliament in close cooperation with the Commission’s Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy, Lagging Regions aims to support selected slow growth and low-income territories in nine EU Member States in the implementation of their smart specialisation strategies.  

In addition to the provision of targeted support to each of these partner territories, Lagging Regions brings them together to share experiences and to develop cross-regional, horizontal perspectives on the key challenges they and many other regions across Europe are facing. These include: Governance, Monitoring and Evaluation; Managing industrial transitions and Transregional and transnational collaboration. Access full report here.
