S3 Concept

Smart specialisation has made a real difference in the way European regions are designing their innovation strategies, creating or reinforcing cooperation at all levels, especially with local business spheres.

Cooperation

The smart specialisation (S3) approach offers a reinforced environment for increasing the interaction and cooperation among the different innovation ecosystems stakeholders, both at local, regional, national and international levels.

Partnerships for Regional Innovation

The Partnerships for Regional Innovation (PRI) are a new approach to place-based innovation policy which builds on positive experiences with smart specialisation strategies.
