Factors of Leadership Attitude Enhancing Interregional Collaboration

Fatime Barbara Hegyi, Laszlo Borbely and Gabor Bekesi
This research proposes to examine the role of good governance and leadership contribute to the overall sustainability and viability of interregional initiatives. Accordingly, the paper explores how the leadership of the cross-border partnerships effect the motivation and commitment within the partnership by comparing attitudes of leaders and participants to explore the potential for more effective operation.

Leadership Impact on Motivation and Commitment in Interregional Collaboration

Fatime Barbara Hegyi, Laszlo Borbely and Gabor Bekesi
The paper explores how the leadership of the thematic Smart Specialisation partnerships effect the motivation and commitment within the partnership by comparing attitudes of leaders and participants to explore the potential for more effective operation. Accordingly, in this paper, the previously proposed assessment framework is been piloted on two thematic Smart Specialisation partnerships.

Overview of activities performed in the heating and cooling initiative of the smart specialisation platform for energy

Technical Report CARLSSON Johan; JIMENEZ NAVARRO Navarro Juan Pablo; BERTOLDI Paolo; SEIGNEUR Isabelle
This report presents the activities performed in the heating and cooling initiative of the Smart Specialisation Platform on Energy (S3PEnergy). The objective of the initiative was to support regions to improve their heating and cooling strategies and to enhance their chances to access EU funds for their projects.

Identification of EU funding sources for the regional heating and cooling sector

External study report made for the Joint Research Centre Veen, Roel van der; Kooijman, Esmee
This report provides an overview of relevant EU funding sources for projects aimed at improving energy efficiency and deploying renewable energy in the heating and cooling sector, and to support innovation and job creation at regional level in the same sector. The study covers European funding sources for the current programming period (2014-2020). Where possible, an outlook will be provided for the period beyond 2020 (2021-2027). The overview will focus on public funding, both grants and other financial instruments such as soft loans and guarantees.

Good practices for Smart Specialisation in energy

S3 Working Paper Series No. 16/2018 NAUWELAERS Claire; SEIGNEUR Isabelle; GÓMEZ PRIETO Javier.
This working paper is part of the policy support provided by the Smart Specialisation Platform on Energy (S3PEnergy) to EU regions and Member States in the implementation phase of their Smart Specialisation Strategies.

Smart specialisation and social innovation: from policy relations to opportunities and challenges

S3 Policy Briefs Series No. 24/2018 SPIESBERGER, Manfred ; GOMEZ PRIETO, Javier; SEIGNEUR, Isabelle.
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.

Promoting solar electricity exports from southern to central and northern European countries: Extremadura case study

JRC Science for Policy report Caldés-Gómez, N., Díaz-Vázquez, A.R.
Under the auspices of the Smart Specialisation platform, this report presents the benefits of cross-border solar electricity trade in Europe. A pre-feasibility assessment of a first of a kind solar plant in Extremadura is conducted to demonstrate the possibility to combine EU financing support mechanisms and the cooperation mechanisms of the RES Directive.

Capitalising on Smart Specialisation and Interreg, the case of energy

Javier Gómez Prieto, Inmaculada Periañez-Forte, Manuel Palazuelos Martinez
This paper suggests that the promotion of inter-regional collaboration – during the implementation of the research and innovation strategies for smart specialisation (RIS3) –can be complemented by the experience gained by the European Territorial Cooperation (ETC) instrument (also known as Interreg). In a moment where regions are focused on the implementation of their RIS3, this paper aims at illustrating how regions could capitalise on the Interreg experience and overcome barriers when promoting collaboration among regions in the scope of their S3 priorities.
