Implementation Implementation

Smart Specialisation represents the most comprehensive industrial policy experiment being implemented in Europe.

Through its adoption and adaptation towards regional development, the smart specialisation concept has become a powerful instrument for place-based innovation-driven growth.

Evidence arising from regions and ongoing informal policy discussions signals that the smart specialisation approach may be evolving towards a methodology that goes beyond its application to the EU regional policy.

Smart specialisation is gaining interest in both scientific and policy-making communities linked for instance to urban and local development, and is also bridging the gap towards more thematic policy approaches such as industrial and energy policies.
