News archive - Session on S3 implementation in SEE at the European Week of Regions and Cities, 2019

At this year's European Week of Regions and Cities, a specific session was organised around the topic of smart specialisation in South Eastern Euorpean Countries (SEE): "Challenges of S3 implementation in SEE: the relevance of governance".

The goal of the session was to identify main bottlenecks and opportunities for the governance process of smart specialisation in selected Southern Eastern European Countries (SEE) in regard to the principles of S3 good governance. The setting for R&I ecosystems to work and S3 related policies to be effective rely on strong linkages on the territory. SEE often show complex and non-flexible institutional infrastructures that prevent these conditions from taking place. For this reason, countries need to employ different approaches in order to reach and maintain quality governance for the process efficiency.
The aim of the session was to delve deeper into the main challenges of S3 governance in SEE, with reference mainly to Croatia, Bulgaria and Serbia that are respectively at different steps of their S3 implementation process.
