Monitoring Monitoring

Monitoring is also a long-standing concern for regions involved in RIS3. Within the Targeted Support activities we have run a working group addressing various facets of monitoring with policy makers and experts. These include:

  • The importance of a clear logic of intervention, linking policy instrument to S3 priorities and various types of indicators;
  • The different data-collection options, with their pros and cons;
  • The role of stakeholders in monitoring;
  • The politics of monitoring;
  • The role of coordination;
  • The balance between creating comparable vs region specific indicators.

These works has led to the creation of a MOOC, targeted to policy makers and practitioners: Monitoring Smart Specialisation Strategies

Most recently we have opened two further areas of work:

  • The potential use of national and international open data for RIS3 monitoring;
  • The evaluation of RIS3.
