The School of Business and Society at St Mary’s University in the UK, in cooperation with the Triple Helix Association, and with the support from Erasmus+ programme of the European Union (Jean Monet Action), is inviting participants to present cases and join a debate on
Innovative place-based Triple Helix approaches for regional
development through Smart Specialisation Strategies
This workshop will focus on the role of location specific innovation strategies and engagement between regional Triple Helix constellations of university-industry-government (U-I-G) partnerships, driving economic growth within regional boundaries. Speakers and participants will compare impact cases of smart specialization across the European regional landscape, and examples of location-driven initiatives worldwide.
Speakers will engage in discussion on the: mechanisms for Multi-stakeholder engagement; pathways to collaborative strategic planning; barriers to regional development and innovation; place-based strategies for sustainable development; regional dimensions of knowledge exchange and the role of universities; regional innovation policies and the role of intermediaries. The workshop will seek to identify in which way a genuine Triple Helix approach can reinforce efficient delivery of successful Smart Specialisation Strategies.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
- showcase best practices of place-based strategies and smart specialization in regions and clusters
- take part in roundtable discussions and open debates with representatives from academia, government and business.
