A vital support to decision makers at regional, national and EU level on empowering the effects of RO’s performance.

The conducted strategy document provides a guide to implement a sufficient monitoring system to facilitate the implementation of the European Smart Specialisation approach. The derived guide follows gained insights from previous project activities as well as knowledge exchanges with stakeholders due to several project events and an online webinar. The strategy will follow the idea developed in the Deliverable D.T4.2.1 to design a trans-national RIS3 observatory responsible to integrate a comparable and sufficient monitoring system in line with a supportive role of smart specialization implementation as a mid-/long-term vision. The short-term perspective of the vision will be introduced by providing a short proposal to set up a feasibility study for the model. Following the introduction, a short description of possible target groups for the strategy guide is offered – of course the report is conducted for interested general public as well.
