Publication date:

European policy-makers, the university sector and many other stakeholders are taking stock of past achievements in Research and Innovation Smart Specialisation Strategies (RIS3) with a view to defining the priorities for the post-2020 period. The interim evaluation of Horizon 2020 has advanced and is already paving the way for the next Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (‘FP9’).

Indeed, the goal of the workshop on “universities in regional innovation ecosystems: coherent policies for Europe beyond 2020” is to develop a series of recommendations for actions to improve the effectiveness of European regional research and innovation funds, both at governance and operational levels. It will also serve as a forum to strengthen the strategic role that universities play in their regional innovation ecosystems, and to contribute to the shape of RIS3 beyond 2020.

The workshop is addressed to university leaders, regional and national policymakers and other stakeholders interested in regional innovation.

It will take place on 17 October 2017 and it will be kindly hosted by the University of Tartu.
