Experts from 12 territories across Europe have been invited to “Assess the potential impact of Smart Specialisation by analysing the macro-linkages between the enhanced quality of policy governance resulting from the adoption of the strategies, induced changes in innovation ecosystems and the effects in terms of growth and jobs”.
In the context of the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic, most participants integrated an analysis of the repercussions of the coronavirus crisis in their RIS3 impact assessment.
In time of social distancing, this exercise was organised online and divided into three webinars.
The report Reflections Guiding Smart Specialisation Strategies Impact Assessment aim to collect evidence on the potential impact of S3 in the quality of policy governance and innovation ecosystem, as well as, its effects in terms of growth and jobs. It summarises and analyses the main findings of the reflection and collective work engaged with 12 territories from across Europe that was carried out from March to December 2020. It highlights different types of methodological approaches and measures that were developed and are foreseen by policy-makers to assess the impact of their research and innovation strategies at different territorial levels.
