Andalusia collaborates in the mapping of the RSI3 of the Mediterranean regions
The Andalusian Regional Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development is collaborating in the mapping of the RSI3 (Research and Innovation Strategy for Smart Specialization) that will be developed within the framework of the Blue Bio Med project, of which Andalusia is a partner . The regional administration will be in charge of compiling information on the strategies of the Mediterranean regions.
RSI3 are seen as the key entry point for understanding and guiding innovation trends and priorities in MED regions and connecting transnational cooperation with Cohesion Policy investments for growth and jobs.
On the other hand, the Andalusian Regional Ministry is participating in the different meetings of the work packages that make up the project, as well as in the open launch event held in October with the participation of eleven partners from 9 countries (Italy, Spain, Croatia, Greece, Slovenia, Montenegro, France, Portugal and Malta).
Research and Innovation strategies for smart specialization (RIS3) are considered as the key entry point to understand and orient the innovation trends and priorities across MED regions and connect transnational cooperation with investments for growth and jobs of the Cohesion Policy.
BLUE BIO MED intends to develop a governance model of innovation policies to tackle complex challenges and will test the innovative approach through policy experiments triggering the cooperation of the quadruple helix stakeholders for interregional innovation investments.
