The 2018 Smarter Conference will offer a comprehensive picture of the smart specialisation policy experience, including an evaluation of its early results, and will highlight recent developments both conceptually and empirically. Attention will be given to implementation challenges and ways to address them, as well as to methodologies for impact assessment. In addition, the conference will explore how smart specialisation engages with global value chains and production networks, and how firms, regions and cities can benefit from relationships across the borders.

Background and objectives

If we think about nature conservation or increasing essential ecosystem services we usually think of protected areas, conserving valuable ecosystems such as forests and wetlands, or maintaining rural landscapes. But can cities also help achieve biodiversity goals and targets? This largely depends on the amount, the quality and management of urban green infrastructure. However, the potential of cities to help protect biodiversity and ecosystem services is likely underestimated.

In a world flooded with information making sense of and communicating knowledge, or evidence, is highly challenging.

Evidence-informed policymaking needs advocates and skilled practitioners.

The summer school aims to help researchers to have more impact and policymakers to use evidence for policy solutions.

The workshop will focus on the tools and approaches to inform the policymaking process through evidence.
