Report on the International Conference ‘Smart Specialisation: dialogue for regional transformation’

Ukrainian Institute for International Politics in cooperation with ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen) presents the follow-up Report on the International Conference ‘Smart Specialisation: Dialogue for Regional Transformation’.

The event took place on November 30 – December 1, 2020, in Kyiv, Ukraine. The overall aim of the Conference was to bring the most crucial questions on the implementation of the Smart Specialisation strategy to the attention of the public and decision-makers. The first edition of the International Conference was held in November 2019 and proved to be a good instrument for summarizing the work on Smart specialization in all regions of Ukraine and abroad.

The Conference provided a unique platform to bring together a large audience of international stakeholders, including the representatives of the EU institutions, namely, such target European Commission directorates as the JRC and DG REGIO, national S3 coordinators, the executive branch, Ukrainian regions pursuing S3 completion and academic community from all over Europe.
