The way forward

Thursday 20th of January 2022, from 14:00 to 16:00

How will regional strategies look like after 2027? Will there be a third generation of smart specialisation strategies? It is certain that today there are European territories that are very advanced, where are they? What lessons can we learn from them?

There are broad societal challenges that can be solved with responsible research and innovation. In addition to the needs of economic recovery and the double transition (sustainable and digital), there are some layers of the European population that are actively resisting globalisation and the benefits of scientific development. More inclusive policies need to be developed. How will be these future policies?

On the other hand, despite decades of benefiting European regional development policies, there are still policies that do not support multi-level governance. Some European territories still face with over-centralised policies at national or regional level. It is desirable to establish effective mechanisms that mobilise society as a whole beyond the traditional economic actors to gather all resources possible. How we could design more effective multi-level governance policies?

About TeRRItoria project

TeRRItoria is a Horizon 2020 project which aims to position regions and local authorities as places for science governance, education, public engagement, ethics, and open access. TeRRItoria operates in a context of transition in European society, which is often critical. For territorial governance, this shift and transition can be a challenge to the usual strategies and measures fostering economic development and social cohesion.
