“EmpInno Monitor S3” is the extension stage of the project “EmpInno - S3 Empowering for Innovation and Growth in Medium-Sized Cities and Regions”.

“EmpInno Monitor S3” is the extension stage of the project “EmpInno – S3 Empowering for Innovation and Growth in Medium-Sized Cities and Regions”.

Main objective of the extension stage 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 main outputs “feedback papers” from the regular EmpInno project, in which the testing of RIS3 monitoring approaches was proposed to “strategy owners” (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 during the extension stage on a transnational level and use them as basis for their regional testing. Thirdly, these concrete testing/pilot activities are carried out by the project partners and involve the related strategy owner.

Fourthly, the tested monitoring approaches are finally included in the overall RIS3 monitoring set-up in the regions.
