An information and brokerage event related to smart specialisation and blue growth, organised by the Interreg funded project Smart Blue Regions and the National Contact Point Network for Horizon 2020
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.

Across Europe (and even outside), regions are at different stages in the quest for smart specialisation, from understanding what it means and setting a vision for the future, to establishing priorities through an entrepreneurial process of discovery, and finally to begin implementing their strategies.
Five countries presented their current work on RIS3: Bulgaria, Ireland, Romania, Poland and Slovakia. The rest of workshop participants acted as 'critical friends' and discussed the strategies of the countries under review. All five countries had a number of shared priorities and common questions in their RIS3 and discussed these in detail during the peer review sessions.
EU countries face a number of challenges for implementing and governing their smart specialisation strategies. In the S3 process, entrepreneurial actors play the leading role in discovering promising areas of future specialisation. One implication for policy makers is that this requires policy tools to collect the "entrepreneurial knowledge" embedded in the country to transform it into policy priorities.
During this workshop, which was co-organised by the S3 Platform and the Federal State of Brandenburg, the following five regions presented their current work on RIS3 (Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation): Berlin-Brandenburg (DE), Greater Manchester (UK), Mazovia (PL) and Prague (CZ).
