From 29 October to 28 November the Committee of the Regions in Brussels will host a series of 12 INTERREG IVC Capitalisation workshops on the following themes: Innovation systems (triple helix and open innovation), Innovation capacity of SMEs, Eco-innovation, Creative industries, Entrepreneurship, E-government services, Demographic change, Rural development, Climate change, Energy efficiency, Renewable energy, and Sustainable transport.
The aim of these workshops is to discuss interesting practices and policies available in the regions involved in INTERREG IVC projects, which could be relevant also to other regions in Europe. The workshops will also stimulate further the mutual learning among projects dealing with similar issues. Furthermore, the experts working on the Capitalisation initiative will present their findings and policy recommendations from the first year of the thematic analysis and validate them with the INTERREG IVC projects, other interested stakeholders and programme/ EU representatives.
