Friends of Smart Specialisation are pleased to have been accepted to organise a session at the second Regions in Recovery Conference in 2022 Regions in Recovery Global E-Festival 2022.
This is an exciting time for smart specialisation which now has to deal with a more top-down European approach (green and digital twin-transition and National Recovery Plans). So, how can S3 play a bridging role with the NRP to deliver the best prioritisation process for twin transition investment choices which now include a stronger focus on sustainable finance? How can S3 or indeed S4 be mainstreamed within the new EU industrial strategy and a shift to a more challenge-driven approach embracing mission-oriented research, possible ERA Hubs, and innovation (Horizon Europe). What could be the spatial implications of such an approach and how do we strengthen a place-based approach based on multi-level governance?
We are pleased to welcome the following distinguished speakers who have a wealth of experience in this topic area.
Join the workshop and find out. We will welcome your views.
