The Internationalisation of Smart Specialisation Strategies

 

 28 June 2021   15.30 -17.00 CEST Remote participation  


Reflecting on the opportunities for regional innovation systems in 2021-27 


Organised by the OECD Trento Centre for Local Development and the OECD Local Development Forum in collaboration with the Friuli Venezia Giulia Autonomous Region (Italy)

Context

The Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3) that European countries and regions are currently elaborating for 2021-2027 will need to respond to the new challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Research and innovation will be critical to increasing the competitiveness of regional economic systems, developing new competences and promoting sustainable production models. In particular, the new EU Cohesion Policy recognises the crucial role of international and interregional co-operation in innovation. Accordingly, the new approach to S3 pushes for a strong orientation towards internationalisation as an enabling condition for the next strategies, which are currently being reformulated in the framework of the 2021-2027 strategic programming cycle.

The OECD Trento Centre for Local Development and the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia in Italy, have developed a project on local development and internationalisation of the innovation system in Friuli Venezia Giulia. The project devotes specific attention to the regional S3 and its future evolution, in view of the 2021-2027 EU programming cycle.

 

What was discussed

This international webinar focused on the opportunities and challenges posed by S3 internationalisation. Building on the Friuli Venezia Giulia case study, the webinar offered an opportunity to compare national, regional and international methodologies, practices and experiences.
