Smart Specialisation Platform for Industrial Modernisation

On 2 June during the Smart Regions conference in Brussels, the European Commission launched the Smart Specialisation Platform for Industrial Modernisation. This new initiative offers hands-on support to regions to foster interregional cooperation based on matching smart specialisation priorities related to industrial modernisation – such as Key Enabling Technologies, service innovation or resource efficiency. It will be hosted by the European Commission’s Smart Specialisation Platform located in Seville. The aim of this initiative is to create an investment pipeline of mature projects in new growth areas across the EU, by providing tailored advice and helping regions establish links with the business and research communities. The platform could help regions develop or share infrastructure such as testing facilities, pilot plants, data centres, and Fab-Labs.
