Innovation in a fast-changing world requires innovation ecosystems: collaboration of quadruple helix stakeholders across technologies, sectors and disciplines. Clusters are part of this and a powerful tool for innovation and sustainable growth within regional smart specialisation. Regional policy has a role in developing specific polices to support these modern ecosystems.

This common challenge united 10 CLUSTERIX 2.0 project partners five years ago. Now it’s time to share learnings from the interregional exchange of experience and results of our implemented actions. As it would be irresponsible and difficult to force an in-person meeting we are going with the next best option: we will celebrate the successful implementation of our project with not one, but two online final events, geared for different discussions:

I. „Future Clusters in Innovation Ecosystems“, 15 Oct. 2020, 11:30-13:00 CET:

The workshop in the framework of the European Week of Regions and Cities capitalises learnings of the three Interreg Europe projects: CLUSTERIX 2.0, ClusterFY and NMP-REG. It will feature:

  • • high level policy makers from Flanders, Lithuania and Portugal sharing insights from interregional cooperation for future cluster policies and smart specialisation in their regions as well as
  • • an outlook on European strategies and programmes from the perspective of INTERREG Europe and DG GROW.

II. “CLUSTERIX 2.0 – Achievements in Cluster Policies of the Last 5 Years”, 16 October 2020, 10:00-12:00 CET:

In this event we will discuss results and future implications addressing three main questions:

  • How to improve the cooperation between policy makers and cluster management organisations through better communication, support, steering and monitoring?
  • How to offer fast, flexible and effective services for innovation in SMEs?
  • Is there a role for clusters in innovation procurement?
