NMP REG Mid-Term Event
Interregional Workshop - Consolidating Nanotechnologies and Advanced Materials in updated Smart Specialisation Strategies
Leuven, Belgium 24th January 2018
Nanotechnologies and advanced materials are believed to play a central role in reversing negative growth trends in manufacturing and in fostering increased growth and jobs. The five regions in the Interreg Europe project NMP-REG cooperate to help partners define policies that can support technology transfer of nanotechnologies and advanced materials to regional manufacturing systems.
New and advanced materials are included as a strategic priority in smart specialisation (RIS3) strategies across Europe. The RIS3 Mid Term Review is a chance to strengthen their strategic presence even further.
The NMP-REG Mid-Term event, taking place in Leuven, Belgium on 24th January 2018, is the chance for regions to discuss their progress on the Mid-Term Review and how to ensure that updated strategies reflect the important potential of nanotech and advanced materials. This is an open working session for policy makers and stakeholders involved in RIS3 to exchange ideas, challenges and experiences.
We look forward to welcoming you to Leuven!
