Smart specialization five years on: from design to implementation
Brussels, 13th October 2016


In the context of European Week of Region and Cities, hosted by The Committee of Regions, policy experts discussed how smart specialisation has been implemented in Europe, and what challenges need to be addressed moving forward. Focusing on evaluating and monitoring recent policy outcomes isa the key priority now. The debate provided an overview of issues related to implementation of the strategies and their monitoring and evaluation phases.

Introduced about five years ago, smart specialization is a new, innovative policy concept encouraging regions and cities to find and build on their competitive advantages. Mainstreaming smart specialization and focusing on evaluating and monitoring recent policy outcomes are the key priorities now, experts noted.

Among the speakers of the workshop: Francesco Grillo (Oxford University e Vision), Philip McCann (University of Groningen), Monika Matusiak (Poznań University of Economics and Business), Katerina Ciampi-Stankova (IPTS JRC, S3 Platform), Edurne Magro (Orkestra and Deusto Business School).
