The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) jointly organise an online workshop on Smart Specialisation for 15 April (09:30-13:00).
This workshop aims to explore how Smart Specialisation can be an effective tool to help territories recover from the current pandemic-induced crisis and discover new opportunities for more sustainable and inclusive economies.
This workshop offers a unique forum for discussing concrete achievements, good practices, and challenges related to implementing the Smart Specialisation policy in EU regions. It seeks to foster a dialogue between practitioners, policy-makers and researchers.
The workshop will count with the participation of Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth and Apostolos Tzitzikostas, President, European Committee of the Regions (Please find the draft agenda attached).
