Focus on: watching and monitoring smart specializations
SMART_watch is a cooperation platform between key participants of the innovation sectors in Central Europe.
Within the SMART_watch, we want to develop and share good practices
as well as learn from other regions that carry out similar activities
in the area of Central Europe (CE).
Business support organisations, R&D institutes and regional authorities
are the pillars for the innovation systems. In particular, we believe that they serve as REGIONAL OBSERVATORIES of technology and market needs and trends, i.e. the institution that monitors technology trends and market developments in the area of smart specializations or regional authorities implementing the RIS, to scrutinise upon good practices, pitfalls
and bottlenecks of their activity.
Our goal is to develop a model of operation and create an international network of Regional Observatories of smart specializations in Central Europe, monitoring technology trends and market development in the areas
of innovative technologies and smart sectors.
Although we do not build new buildings, we do not provide infrastructure
in the form of equipment, we bring something more valuable to our regions: knowledge, competences, contacts that enterprises can use to improve their competitiveness and implement innovations. Technology areas covered within the SMART_watch project are: health, life science, ICT, future services, sustainable production technics and Industry 4.0.
JRC together with the Romanian Ministry of Research and Innovation will organise a "Conference on Smart Specialisation Strategies and Technology Transfer in South-East Europe" in Bucharest (Romania).
THE COMPETENCE MAP IS DESIGNED AS AN ICT TOOL THAT WILL ALLOW SMART SPECIALIZATIONS
MONITORING, GRAPH VISUALIZATION OF KEY AREAS AND CORRELATIONS BETWEEN KEY ACTORS.
IT WILL CONSIST OF TECHNOLOGY TRENDS DATA BASES, S3 SERVICES AVAILABLE AND COMPLETE
INFORMATION ON REGIONAL OBSERVATORIES COMPETENCES DEDICATED FOR ENTERPRISES.
- it is a network of entities that have different roles in the process of entrepreneurial discovery , the purpose of which is to provide different types of information on specific specializations for diversified audiences (institutions, local authorities, companies, R & D sector).
