Supporting document:Smart Specialisation Masterclass Flyer.pdf
During the Masterclass Dominique Foray will take the participants on a reflexive journey through the concepts of innovation and regional development. Smart Specialization is an approach to policy that considers whether those activities already strong or showing promise for a region can benefit from (more) R&D and innovation.
The Masterclass will focus on:
• Innovation and entrepreneurial discovery process
• Critical elements on industrial settings, regional specialisation and the policy process
• Regional needs to focus by developing distinctive and original areas of specialisation
• Contextualizing the elements in specific cases via a participatory exercise.
