Interregional Co-operation for the Intelligent Growth of the MAC Regions

RIS3_Net will develop a strategy for institutional co-operation and a system of common governance, aimed at those institutions responsible for the planning, execution and follow-up of the intelligent specialisation strategies in the MAC regions, taking into consideration its possible extension to other countries. RIS3_Net will enable:

  • An increase in common knowledge of the RIS3 strategies of the participating regions.
  • The sharing of needs, difficulties and challenges affecting the MAC regions, related to the revision, execution and follow-up of intelligent specialisation strategies.
  • The creation of a governance that will permit a common work framework to be established.
  • The exchange of knowledge and best practices with regards to R&D and innovation policies and information systems for the follow-up and evaluation of the strategy.
  • The development of pilot actions in the form of “Proofs of Concept”.
