Masterclass on Smart Specialisation with Prof. Dominique Foray

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.
