We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The JRC will present the main findings of the research study: "Smart Specialisation in Latin America" which has been conducted to analyse how policy makers and other territorial actors in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Chile and Argentina are designing and implementing the Smart Specialisation concept. The event will also serve as an opportunity to establish active synergies between practitioners of smart specialisation in the European Union and Latin America.
It will take place at JRC headquarters in Brussels (Rue du Champ de Mars/Marsveldstraat 21) on the occasion of the EU-CELAC Joint Initiative for Research and Innovation, Senior Officials Meeting (JIRI SOM), which will be held this year in Brussels the day before.
