This report sets out to synthesise the dispersed knowledge on a range of issues relevant for the success of priority setting processes and practices in innovation policies and strategies. Outlining changing contexts, rationales and approaches of priority setting in Research and Innovation policies leads to the “new prioritisation logic” guiding RIS3 exercises. This is followed by two main lines aiming to facilitate improved priority setting: better understanding the wider innovation policy context of RIS3, and making better use of Strategic Policy Intelligence and other support tools (including learning from private sector strategies) to structure and guide policy cycles, and to implement place-appropriate policy mixes. Evidence on effective priority setting processes in RIS3-type exercises and policy recommendations complete the report.

Workshop on regional heating and cooling priorities and financing in the framework of the Smart Specialisation Platform (S3P-E H&C)
EUR - Conference and Workshop report by the Joint Research Centre BOZA-KISS Benigna, CARLSSON Johan, JIMENEZ NAVARRO Juan Pablo, BERTOLDI Paolo
The report collects and summarises the content presented and discussed during the workshop on Smart Specialisation on Heating and Cooling, held in May 2018. This workshop was organised by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC). It gathered 40 participants including regional representatives and experts in the heating and cooling field. The workshop offered the possibility of discussing how to achieve effective regional heating and cooling planning and how to fund projects by the uptake of the European Structural and Investment funds. Different examples were presented to inspire new projects in other regions. These examples tackled different aspects including technical, economic and social. After the workshop regions are willing to collaborate further and they found interesting synergies with the ongoing partnerships in the Smart Specialisation Platform on Energy (S3PEnergy).

This 'Guide' gathers more than 60 good practices meant to support a clean energy transition in the CESEC region. These good practices presented are the results from projects supported by the Intelligent Energy Europe and Horizon 2020 programmes addressing key energy efficiency areas of relevance for the region.

In the energy field, Social Innovation (SI) may evolve into a strong transformational function of the whole energy system. Citizens are in the focus of the European Union’s plans towards an energy transition based on citizen energy and a more decentralised energy system where the consumer is in focus. SI would in this sense not be any more an add-on to classical technology focused innovation, but driving the whole transition process in the energy field. This means also serious repercussions on the regional level, as a more decentralised energy supply system will open-up opportunities for usage of local resources and involvement of citizens and local businesses. With smart specialisation strategies in the implementation phase, clean energy is one of the main priorities for most EU regions.

This report gives an overview of the Western Balkans region, looking at challenges and emerging potentials for innovation. It also presents tools and methodologies available at the JRC to support an innovation agenda for economic transformation and inspired by Smart Specialisation. Each challenge is supported by a concrete implementation example.
