S3 PlatformS2ES3 Targeted Support
The "Stairway to Excellence" European Pilot Project is centred on:
Providing assistance to the 13 Members States (and their regions) which joined the EU after 2004 with the aim of closing the innovation gap and promoting excellence in all regions and EU countries;
Stimulating the early and effective implementation of national and regional Smart Specialisation Strategies.
The LITHUANIA National Event was organised jointly by the European Commission, Directorate-General Joint Research Centre (S3 Platform, S2E project) and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Lithuania, Research and Higher Education Monitoring and Analysis Centre (MOSTA).
(*) The S2E National "facts and figures" document was the basis for this presentation. It contains key messages, based on the presented quantitative indicators, and provides as full a picture as possible of how and where European funding dedicated to R&I is spent.
