Currently we are working on the Twinning strategy for EIZ, in which we see the opportunity for the Institute to position itself as the leader in Smart Specialization in Croatia as well in South Eastern European including its inner circle the Western Balkan. Regarding to this we are organising the second project meeting in Milano, where the Twinning strategy for EIZ should be approved by all partners involved in the project.
We are planning staff exchanges, and planning to organise training workshops, and training schools on the topic of Smart Specialisation and research and & innovation for stakeholders for policy makers and scientific staff in southeast Europe and especially for the inner circle of the Western Balkans region. In this context, we are currently conducting on line survey which will enable us to recognize the needs of policy makers and researchers in the field of Smart Specialization in Croatia as well as in Western Balkans region. The questionnaire is available on the following link: http://goo.gl/forms/lGcPNoC6iWKyYfZB3
