10: Smart Governance for smart Specialisation

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

’Smart specialisation’ is Europe’s new approach to the smart growth of its regions. However, in order to be successful, smart specialisation also needs ‘smart governance’. What should regions in the future do to tackle the growing complexity of regional innovation policy? How can young people be activated as regional stakeholders? What role will new technologies such as the social media play, and how can proven and tested methods for participation be utilised for ‘smart governance’? Join us and discuss these issues with Austrian and European experts and representatives of smart regions.
