SMART REGIONS Conference 3.0  

14-15 November 2019

The third edition of Smart Regions Conference will take place between 14-15 November 2019, at the EGG Center in Brussels, Belgium.

Globalisation, new technologies and the transition to a climate neutral, circular economy are radically changing our societies and economies. Tackling these challenges calls for urgent deployment of new solutions and requires profound, systemic transformations. The conference will be an opportunity for 600 practitioners from research, business, civil society and public administration to assess what has already been achieved through national/regional innovation strategies, to exchange experience and reflect on an effective transformation through smart specialisation in the 2021-2027 programming period.“
