The Smart Specialisation Platform (SSP), managed by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC), is organising a workshop on governance of the smart specialisation strategies (RIS3) built on the peer-review method.
The workshop invites EU countries and regions to reflect on the institutional conditions, procedures and methods for the design and implementation of RIS3. It brings together national, regional and sub-regional policymakers from EU countries, representatives from the European Commission and researchers.
The aim is to explore, among others, the following issues:
- innovations introduced in the governance structure at national, regional and/or local levels
- novel practices that mark a clear new working method for the public administration
- main governance challenges that still need to be overcome to design and put in place a RIS3
- RIS3 revision process and main governance implications
