The participants gathered in the House of Region Skåne in Malmö on the 4th of June. Pia Kinhult, First Governor of the Region, chaired the meeting and was joined by political representatives from other member regions, innovation experts and Mikel Landabaso from the Directorate-General for Regional Policy.

The recently finished scoping paper on a possible Smart Specialisation platform for advanced manufacturing paper provided a first input for the discussions. All representatives expressed their wish for more solution-oriented advanced manufacturing within specific themes and it was mentioned that the Initiative in the future might work towards relevant flagship projects recognised by the European Commission.

After the meeting was closed, many of the participants went to Luftkastellet at the base of the Öresund Bridge, to attend an afternoon conference which was the core event of Skåne Innovation week.
