ESPON Workshop "Innovation & Knowledge"
05.10.2012, Brussels (Belgium)
ESPON Workshop "Innovation & Knowledge - Territorial dimensions for future EU Cohesion Policy".
ESPON, the European Spatial Planning Observation Network is organising an 'Innovation & Knowledge' workshop on 5th October 2012, which will take a closer look at regional innovation and smart specialisation strategies that can contribute to meeting the EU's agreed goal of smart growth. The Europe2020 Strategy calls on Member States to invest 3% of their GDP in Research & Development, in order to reach the smart targets set. ESPON's Innovation & Knowledge workshop will look at the progress made thus far, and consider action still needed, while also providing information on the territorial dimension of innovation and knowledge and its implications for the elaboration of future Structural Funds programmes.
