Interregional Cooperation for the Smart Growth of the MAC Regions


Azores

 | Public Project

InterregionalMacaronesiaSpecialization

RIS3_Net aims to develop an institutional cooperation and a common governance system strategy, directed to the institutions responsible for planning, implementing and monitoring the smart specialization strategies on the MAC Regions, also taking into account the potential of including the third countries. This project will allow increasing the common knowledge of the RIS3 strategies of the participating regions.

The project addresses three main objectives:

  1. Analysis of strategies for intelligent specialisation of participating regions, exchange of experiences and development of a transregional cooperation and coordination strategy, based on the use of synergies in priority areas Common;
  2. Development and implementation of practical cooperation actions in priority areas of common interest that promote the increase of critical mass in the MAC Space;
  3. Recollecting of good international practices, internal training and improving external visibility in the areas of intelligent specialization of the MAC Space.
