EU’s post-2020 Smart Specialisation Agenda

Challenges and Opportunities for the Baltic Sea Region

Emphasising the Policy Position on Smart Specialisation, adopted at the General Assembly in May 2019,  we are pleased to inform you that we will be organising a seminar on the EU’s post-2020 Smart Specialisation Agenda. the seminar will be held on 19 November 2019 from 14.30-18.30 in Room PHS 4B1, European Parliament, Brussels.

The Baltic Sea Region has benefited from an S3 logic in the current programming period, with significant regional efforts, across the macro-region and beyond, in the macro-region’s innovation ecosystems. The post-2020 S3 proposals offer new momentum to build on this performance, and to strengthen collaboration efforts to deliver new industry-driven investment. Furthermore, this builds on the Baltic Sea’s ambitions to deliver both inclusive and clean growth. The event seeks to bring together our political and innovation ecosystem partners to share ideas and to set out a clear pathway for the Baltic Sea’s innovation agenda. Key questions and themes to support this event include:

  • How do we position the Regions of the Baltic Sea at the forefront of the EU´s industrial innovation ambitions?
  • What are the necessary steps for us to create further ownership and commitment to deliver this?
  • What tools and actions are required to future-proof our skills and competences, to identify and prioritise the opportunities and to attract and leverage investment?

The programme is available to view or download here.
