  • Elaborating the roles and possible contributions of Climate-KIC and JRC to regional innovation ecosystems with emphasis on capacity building and establishment of better governance structures.
  • Exploring collaboration opportunities between Managing Authorities of ESIF and Climate KIC stakeholders.
  • Raising awareness of the actions of DG JRC, DG REGIO and Climate-KIC facilitating synergies between different funding programmes.
  • Sharing experiences in developing effective collaboration tools, accessing finance and being integrated to local and global value chains.
  • Exploring opportunities for the transnational collaboration where also quadruple helix and national authorities in charge of ESIF can be involved.

Smart Specialisation is conceived of as a process aimed at transforming the economic and industrial structures of a territory through the formation of new capacities and capabilities. The European Commission's science and knowledge service - the Joint Research Centre (DG JRC), and Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO) provide targeted support to EU regions and Member States in the implementation of their smart specialisation strategies.
