Each region or country under review presents its current work on RIS3 along a template prepared by the S3 Platform. The template covers main features of the RIS3 process as suggested by the RIS3 Guide.
The S3 Platform team has published one working paper describing this newly developed peer review methodology and another working paper presenting experiences and perceived impact from the regions and countries which were reviewed in the first twelve Peer Review Workshops during 2012 and 2013.
Peer eXchange & Learning (PXL) builds on the well-established peer-review approach of the S3 Platform. It supports transnational learning by bringing together regions and countries for knowledge and experience exchange, and the exploration of ways in which innovation and development strategies can be effectively implemented, adjusted and revised.
Most documents submitted by the regions and countries under review (including their RIS3 presentations and any background material) can be found in the document library.
In 2012-2014, a total number of 17 peer-review workshops were organised, allowing a total of 53 regions and 15 member states to be peer-reviewed.
Peer-Review Workshops in 2012-2014
Peer-Review Workshops from 2015From 2015, the peer review workshops have taken a slightly different format, focusing on fewer regions in each workshop. As the S3 process is progressing, the topics for discussions move towards dimensions reflecting the implementation of the S3 Strategies more than the developement of the strategies.
If your region or country is registered to the S3 Platform and wishes to be peer-reviewed or to host an upcoming workshop, please contact the S3 Platform at JRC-B3-S3P@ec.europa.eu
