The event will showcase specific progress of Smart Specialisation in the area of energy. Particular focus is given to "implementation" and "collaborative frameworks". Good examples in key thematic applications (e.g. Energy efficiency, heating and cooling, sustainable construction, renewables and advanced manufacturing will be presented.
This DG REGIO High-Level Event will highlight the key role of regions in developing new growth dynamics for Europe, based on bottom-up entrepreneurship and innovation. It will mark the mobilisation of this potential for transformation in priority areas, e.g. energy transition, digital growth, circular economy, agro-food or industrial modernisation. Smart specialisation strategies can leverage numerous new growth opportunities for all regions when aligning their business driven smart specialisation investments in new European value chains.
