Pontikakis, Dimitrios Fernandez, Tatiana Janssen, Matthijs Guy, Ken Marques Santos, Anabela Boden, Mark Moncada-Paternò-Castello, Pietro
This report provides guidelines with respect to concepts, rationales and methodological considerations aimed at experts conducting territorial reviews of industrial transition and at policy makers and analysts with an interest in the operationalisation of transformative industrial innovation. It explains the concepts necessary to adopt a wider framing of the production and consumption system, the rationales for (and objectives of) reviews useful for transformative industrial innovation, and the POINT (Projecting Opportunities for INdustrial Transitions) methodology presented as a series of steps. The report is meant as a resource to be consulted continuously throughout the process of a review.

The EU Blue Economy Report 2020

The European Commission Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, and t he Joint Research Centr
In its third edition, the EU Blue Economy Report continues to analyse the scope and size of the Blue Economy in the European Union. It aims at providing support to policymakers and stakeholders in the quest for a sustainable development of oceans, coastal resources and, most notably, to the development and implementation of polices and initiatives under the European Green Deal in line with the new approach for a sustainable Blue Economy. For the purposes of the Report, the Blue Economy includes all those activities that are marine-based or marine-related. Therefore, the Report examines not only established sectors (i.e. those that traditionally contribute to the Blue Economy) but also emerging (those for which reliable data are still developing) and innovative sectors, which bring new opportunities for investment and hold huge potential for the future development of coastal communities. Analyses are provided for the EU as a whole and by sector and industry for each Member State.

Developing an Evaluation Framework Integrating Results of the Thematic Approach to Smart Specialisation

Fatime Barbara Hegyi and Ruslan Rakhmatullin
This paper examines how European regions can jointly pilot experimental policy support measures in precise S3 niches prior to their full-scale rollout in partner regions. By tackling new and often ambitious areas together, participating regions are able to test new policy support instruments while sharing the overall risk and uncertainty associated with such experiments.
