The I3 Instrument supports stronger interregional cooperation in investments and makes sustainable connections by linking regional ecosystems in shared smart specialisation areas vital to accelerate market uptake of research results and stimulate innovation.
This action is intended to create connected regional innovation valleys across the EU, involving regions with lower innovation performances, by building on strategic areas of regional strength and specialisation (defined in their smart specialisation strategies), in support of key EU priorities. Successful applicant regions under this call topic will be recognised as “regional innovation valleys”.
Created by the Joint Research Centre, the MOOC "Smart Specialisation in EU Enlargement and Neighbourhood Region and the new trends in the Smart Specialisation approach" analyses the main phases of designing a Smart Specialisation Strategy while considering the specificity of each territory. The MOOC includes 7 modules aimed at disseminating the guidance and methodological approach, as well as practical examples, lessons and experiences.
The International Foundation Big Data and Artificial Intelligence for Human Development (iFAB) is seeking qualified reviewers to evaluate project proposals in the areas of data analytics, artificial intelligence, high-performance computing or quantum technologies.
