This is the first of three workshops, within the targeted support activities, that will tackle the issue of Open Data and Open Science for Monitoring Smart Specialisation. Furthermore, during the workshop we will keep working on the issue of S3 evaluation.
On the eve of the new programming period of the Cohesion Policy for 2021-2027, this PXL workshop aims at reflecting on the S3 experience so far and discuss the new elements introduced by the new European Cohesion Regulations 2021-17 to reach a common understanding.
Objective of the workshops: (1) To develop a shared understanding of "S3 Monitoring and Evaluation" (2) To bring S3 technical bodies (who are in charge of the monitoring) close to evaluators. I.e. build the capacity to engage with them, to pursue a meaningful exercise.
The S3 Platform is organising its next PXL workshop on Governance of the Smart Specialisation Strategies. Should you be interested in participating as a peer review region, contact us! .
Given its experimentalist and result-oriented approach, Smart Specialisation places a strong emphasis on the role of monitoring and evaluation.
Given its experimentalist and result-oriented approach, the Smart Specialisation policy concept places a strong emphasis on the role of monitoring within the policy cycle. Monitoring refers to a set of activities regarding the ongoing, systematic collection and elaboration of information to assess progress towards the achievement of policies' intended results and outputs. Monitoring information should be used to enhance policy performance and inform future decision-making processes.
The first global workshop on Smart Specialisation worldwide will take place in Seville (Spain) ahead of the 2018 edition of the Smarter Conference.
This conference will show how regional partnerships including universities and other higher education institutions can drive smart specialisation. It is the result of two related projects: Higher Education for Smart Specialisation (HESS), managed by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre in cooperation with DG Education and Culture, and Thinking Smart, an Erasmus+ funded consortium of European HEIs.
The third Peer eXchange and Learning (PXL) workshop on Multi-level Governance for RIS3, is planned for April 2018.
