To promote Smart Specialisation as an important tool also for transnational cooperation in the Western Balkans is the purpose of this workshop.

It will also provide a dialogue forum to jointly discuss

• strategic innovation policies,
• the identification of priorities of common interest and
• their implementation across the Western Balkans.


1. Facilitate peer discussions to improve the elaboration process and content of smart specialisation strategies across the Western Balkans.
2. Start discussing opportunities for collaboration and joint projects within those domains.
The results of a Western Balkan scientific mapping exercise will also be launched at this event.
