How can research and innovation initiatives support economic development in Ukraine, Georgia or the Republic of Moldova? How can their Smart Specialisation Strategies address new societal challenges? Join the #EURegionsWeek online workshop “Smart strategies for economic development in the R. Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine” on 12 October.
Smart Specialisation Strategies are a key approach to support innovation and research, and they have become one of the most important policy processes for our Eastern Neighbours. The Republic of Moldova, Ukraine and Georgia are the most advanced Eastern Partnership countries in the development of their strategies. In the current geopolitical context, these strategies could favour their economic development and help with the new challenges in society.
During the workshop, representatives from the Joint Research Centre and DG REGIO will present the new tools the Commission has at its disposal to support efficiently the development and implementation of Smart Specialisation Strategies. Afterwards, members from the countries S3 Platform teams will gather on a panel to share their thoughts and experiences in the implementation of these strategies. At the end of the session, there will be the chance to interact with the speakers through a “questions and answers” section.
The workshop will be held online. The registration is available here.
Date: 12 October
Time: 16:30 – 18:00
