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 has signed a Research Framework Arrangement (RFA) with the University of Hohenheim in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. With this, both organisations set the basis for cooperation in bioeconomy, global food security and ecosystems, health sciences and digital transformation, as well as innovation research.
As the end of the programming period approaches, it is time to debate on the state of the art of monitoring activities and how to test Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3).
Throughout the years, the JRC has developed a solid framework for monitoring, in response of a very strong demand from national and regional authorities. To address these aspects, this workshop aims to build a space for communication between researchers and practitioners, based on shared empirical and conceptual ground.
