Interreg Europe workshops

The first workshop will demonstrate the importance of the outward dimension of smart specialisation strategies (S3) and present the support offered to regions in this domain by the S3 Platform and the Interreg Europe interregional cooperation programme.
 
Participants will discover the main results of a survey carried out by the Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) in this domain and see examples of successful interregional R&I partnerships.
