Smart Specialisation represents the most comprehensive industrial policy experience being implemented in contemporary Europe and it is a cornerstone in the European Union effort to drive countries and regions out of the crisis and guarantee opportunities for growth for each and every one of its territories. Thanks to this effort, for the first time, public authorities and stakeholders across an area of more than five hundred million inhabitants are crafting their innovation policy according to a common set of principles and methodologies.
The First SMARTER Conference on Smart Specialisation and Territorial Development aims to take stock of the smart specialisation experience and assess its current state of the art both in terms of conceptual developments and practical implementation. It offers to a limited number of participants from academia, European Institutions and territorial authorities, a unique opportunity to discuss these issues, to define the scope and main avenues for future research and policy analysis, and to address the challenges confronting policy makers and practitioners.
