Why are we doing the project?

Regional authorities as "strategy owners" face common problems/obstacles in the RIS3 implementation process

Innovation intermediaries often lack capacity to work with the novel RIS3 approach and apply this to their work with the end-users SMEs and further innovation actors

Medium-sized cities and regions often have a smaller critical mass for innovation and growth when compared to metropolises

What do we do?

Enhance organisational capacity (Organisational coaching tools)

Promote the RIS3 (Information events and mobilisation processes)

Network and disseminate results (Recommendations, events, spread)

R+D transfer workshops (Exchange, adapt and test locally)

SME Empowerment tools (Exchange, adapt and test locally)

Discuss RIS3 of partner regions (Network institutionalised)

Evaluate the RIS3-implementation (RIS3 feedback papers to authorities)

Synergy potential + delegation trips
