Two EPSI actions were mentioned in the document about Interreg Europe projects related to S3 Smart Specialisation Strategy (S3).
18 Interreg Europe projects are currently dedicated to developing and delivering better regional policies regarding the design and implementation of smart specialisation strategies (S3). The European Regional Development Fund, following the structure of the handbook on Implementing Smart Specialisation Strategy (S3), published a policy brief analysing the very rich amount of knowledge created within Interreg Europe projects related to S3.
This news is particularly notable for EPSI, since both Inno4Sports and ClusSport were mentioned in the document, emphasizing the importance of Clusters for interregional cooperation. In particular, at page 15 of the document, written by Arnault Morisson & Marc Pattinson, we can read:
“Interreg Europe projects with a cluster dimension have also demonstrated how policies dedicated to implementing dynamic cluster policies can act as drivers of interregional cooperation. This is further illustrated by the role played by clusters, on behalf of their regional authorities in S3 Partnerships. For instance, the sport and technology clusters involved in Inno4Sports and the ClusSport Consortium“.
