Lessons for regions from the new EU smart specialisation strategies.
The EU Centre at RMIT and CESAA are pleased to host a seminar presented by David Charles, Professor of Regional Economic Development and Policy, European Policies Research Centre, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.
Following Professor Charles’ presentation, two colleagues with extensive experience with regional innovation systems in Europe, specifically in Värmland in Sweden, will commence the discussion. Mats Williams has spent more than a decade developing and supporting clusters in Värmland, while Professor Steve Garlick has worked closely with regional authorities and universities in Sweden on behalf of the OECD and Pascal projects on universities and regional engagement. They will reflect on the possible benefits of smart specialisation strategies in Värmland, and in other regions in Europe and Australia.
