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.
Co-organised by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre and the Commission's Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development, (DG DEVCO), in collaboration with the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), this event takes place next 9th December to oficially launch the project S4LatinAmerica.
Registrations are now open.
The online event is open to the public, but registration is mandatory and places are limited. For additional information of the event, please visit the dedicated website.
The main objectives of this event are three fold:
The project S4LatinAmerica will be implemented under the governance of the Regional Facility for Development in transition. Its main goal is to confirm the potential of the EU Smart Specialisation policy concept to steer innovation-driven territorial development, in line with sustainable development principles. The territorial scope of the project addresses EU-Latin America cooperation by focusing on cases and practices in Mexico, Chile and Peru. Lessons learnt from other EU programmes/projects dealing with Smart Specialisation as innovation bridge between EU and América Latina y el Caribe (LAC) and regions will be also reflected.
