The aim of the present report is to explore key aspects of interregional and international cooperation in order to better understand whether and how they contribute to strengthening innovation ecosystems and interact and influence Smart Specialisation Strategies. The potential for lagging regions to participate in interregional and transnational cooperation remains under-exploited and this report examines the specific challenges that are relevant to low growth and less developed regions as well as the potential benefits and opportunities. It explores the nature and extent of mutual reinforcement between interregional collaboration and smart specialisation in a selection of lagging regions drawing on a survey, case studies, and events. Interviews were conducted with stakeholders in regional agencies and Ministries. The case study territories include: 1. Puglia, Italy 2. Centro, Portugal 3. Western Hungary, Hungary 4. Croatia (national level) 5. Extremadura, Spain 6. Western Macedonia, Greece 7. Nord-Est, Romania 8. Centru, Romania 9. Kainuu, Finland (non-lagging region collaborating with lagging regions)
Projecting Opportunities for INdustrial Transitions (POINT). Concepts, rationales and methodological guidelines for territorial reviews of industrial transition
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.
