Lessons were drawn on how smart specialisation strategies were used and how clusters have supported growth in Europe's regions.

 

How to boost smart interregional collaboration through clusters and foster value chain linkages that bring benefits to regions and cities across Europe? 

'GROW your REGIOn' is an opportunity to:

  • share your smart specialisation and cluster experience and practices
  • exchange ideas about future actions for smart interregional collaboration
  • learn about new ways of supporting innovation and accelerating industrial modernisation and SME growth

The conference audience was invited to actively contribute, collaborate and co-create, following the first edition from 2015 in Brussels.
