The main objective of the EmpInno Monitor S3 -project is to develop and test innovative monitoring elements and thereby to improve the monitoring systems of the smart specialisation strategies (=RIS3) in the seven partner regions.
Therefore, the partners will take up and pilot parts of the “feedback papers”, the main outputs of the regular EmpInno project, in which the testing of RIS3 monitoring approaches was proposed to be due to “strategy owner”, the authority responsible for the smart specialisation strategy.
Firstly, the partners build upon the needs stated in the feedback papers. Secondly, they exchange, discuss and further refine monitoring approaches on a transnational level and use them as basis for their regional testing. Thirdly, the project partners test activities in cooperation with their strategy owner. Finally, the tested monitoring approaches are included in the overall RIS3 monitoring set-up in the regions.
