Smart specialisation strategies supporting Mediterranean green and just transition 

S3, since their first introduction in the 2014-2020 programming period, are demonstrating to be a powerful tool to plan strategically research and innovation policy efforts across the European regions and countries. Smart specialisation strategies can be the framework for place-based innovation policy for sustainability oriented to the delivery of the European Green Deal without harming the economic, social and territorial cohesion. The concept of smart specialisation strategies for sustainable and inclusive growth (S4+) has started to spread across EU with the new programming period, to underling the shift of the focus on transformative changes, moving beyond the simple competitiveness logic and encompassing broader regional and societal challenges. 

The Mediterranean community of S3 practitioners will gather with the Interreg community during the innovation camp for a 2-days workshop discussion and exchanges to find common ground to work together to address sustainability challenges and SDGs. 

The workshops will be a space to provide tools and capacity building to S3 policy makers (national, regional and local) and promote synergies in the MED community. Partners will be invited to participate in the Innovation Camp together with S3 policy makers from their regions. 

The event is targeted to:

  • Governance and thematic projects partners from the ISE Mission and other Missions 
  • S3 policy makers and practitioners from the Mediterranean region 
  • Mediterranean governance institutions and programmes 

The participation is free of charge. There are limited seats available for participation in presence. Registration is compulsory filling the form below. Preference will be given to stakeholders involved in the governance of S3 in a Mediterranean region/country and to Project Partners applying together. Confirmed participants will receive preparatory materials before the event.
