EVENT PROFILE DATA
Thematic international workshop on the role of clusters in the reindustrialization and regional development
Dr. Gerd Meier zu Köcker, International Cluster Expert
Clusters, regional development, national and regional authorities, R&D and higher education
1. To highlight the benefits of an integrated approach to cluster policies and smart specialization
2. To introduce the revised European Cluster Excellence Scheme
3. To discuss the opportunities and challenges for cluster policies in this context
4. Exchange of experience and networking
Smart specialization strategies are key elements of a new, more result-oriented Cohesion Policy focusing on growth through innovation, which is now being implemented. It helps regions at different stages of development to focus on their strengths, to position themselves in global value chains and to team up to build strategic partnerships across Europe with other regions that have complementary strength in similar priority areas.
Clusters and cluster policies can facilitate this process and help to maximize the impact of the EUR 121 billion of European Structural and Investment Funds allocated to investment in research and innovation guided by smart specialization strategies. The implementation of these strategies promises to trigger industrial modernization processes and create more productive, diversified and resilient economies. It should, in particular, contribute to providing small and medium-sized enterprises – the backbone of the EU economy – with better support and investment opportunities.
