Cooperation for Smart Specialisation – 1st Western Balkans workshop

The present event is to be the first of a series of locally organised events in the Western Balkans (WB) and neighbouring EU Member States. Its mission is to make smart specialisation in the Western Balkans an important tool to promote transnational cooperation in the region. It should provide a dialogue forum to jointly discuss strategic innovation policies, the identification of priorities of common interest and their implementation across the WB. 

The specific objectives of the event are to:

1) facilitate peer discussions to improve the elaboration process and content of smart specialisation strategies across the WB;

2) start discussing opportunities for collaboration and joint projects within those domains, once the first WB economies have defined their place-based innovation priorities for smart specialisation through an evidence-based and participatory process.
