Sunrise Valley Science and Technology Park hosted a workshop of Interreg Europe project ecoRIS3 in Vilnius on the 27th and 28th of November 2018. The project analyses models and good practices on how higher education, business, government, and society can contribute to implementation of smart specialisation strategies. The workshop in Vilnius was dedicated to science and business cooperation measures contributing to regional development.
Project partners shared the best cases from Lithuania, Latvia, Finland, Ireland, France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal. Most countries reported success stories in science and business cooperation through the prism of clusters, networking initiatives and support schemes, focusing on building a supportive ecosystem with the help of public services for incubation, scouting, technology transfer, and consultancy.
Project partners also shared their visions on action plans to be developed as a set of recommendations for the governments, directly responsible for shaping the smart specialisation policies in their respective countries. Four ecorRIS3 workshops aimed to identify good practices on how quadruple helix successfully fosters regional development.
