SMARTER 2020 Conference, Webinar 02: Smart Specialisation Strategies for Sustainability: opportunities for economic recovery and competitiveness
October 6/9:30 am - 11:30 am CEST
The Territorial Development Unit of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre and RSA Europe are holding a webinar series based on selected themes of the SMARTER 2020 Conference.
The second webinar “Smart Specialisation Strategies for Sustainability: opportunities for economic recovery and competitiveness” situates smart specialisation strategies in the new EU policy agenda with the European Green Deal as EUs new growth strategy. Which opportunities for local industrial strategies arise in the green and digital transitions and in the new EU policy? How can smaller countries, regions and cities in Europe design bottom-up strategies reaping the opportunities of the green and digital transition for local jobs and growth? Which investments and innovation measures are needed for this to happen? How to deal with the threats of transitions and local trade-offs? How can we build on smart specialisation strategies and what needs to be adapted?
The Webinar counts on five high-level speakers with in-depth experience in innovation policy design across Europe.
