Description



As explained in the PRI Playbook, PRI offers a complementary strategic framework to Smart Specialisation that seeks to leverage the power of systemic innovation to deliver economic, environmental and social co-benefits.

The workshop aims to present the complementary strategic framework, called Partnerships for Regional Innovation (PRI), developed by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) to support the green and digital transition.

The workshop is divided into two parts:

  • the first one is dedicated to presenting the PRI concept and
  • the second one is dedicated to feedback from practitioners.

Everyone with an interest in innovation policies for territorial transformation is invited!

The Joint Research Centre (JRC) in collaboration with the Committee of the Regions (CoR) will report on progress with the PRI Pilot initiative, working jointly with over 70 territories to develop the new approach in support of the much-needed green and digital transition.

Practitioners from the territories participating to the PRI Pilot will be with us to share their experiences and ideas, while the workshop will serve as an inspiring platform to connect and commence a continuing dialogue with other regions and stakeholders with an interest in developing innovation strategies for transformation.
