The S3 Platform held a third peer-review workshop hosted by the Azorian government in Ponta Delgada, Portugal. Azores held the presidency of the grouping of EU Outermost Regions until October 2012 and the workshop had a focus on peripherality as a factor in smart specialisation strategies. See here the local news telejournal on the seminar.
Three of the Outermost Regions were reviewed (Azores, Canary Islands and Réunion) along with Cornwall, another member of the S3 Platform with similar challenges related to its semi-peripheral geographic location. A further twelve S3P member regions attended and acted as "critical friends".
