The Institute of Economics, Zagreb as a coordinator of the SmartEIZ project, is organizing a two-day conference under the title “Smart Specialization Strategies: Contemporary Challenges of its Design and Implementation”. The conference will be held in Zagreb on the 25th and 26th September at Hotel Dubrovnik.
The aim of the SmartEIZ conference is to address contemporary challenges of designing and implementing the Smart Specialization Strategy across Europe.
By bringing together distinguished academics together with senior policy makers and young researchers from the partner institutions on SmartEIZ project―University Bocconi, UNU MERIT and UCL― as well as from other institutions around Europe, the conference will explore contributions which emerged during the implementation of this project. Also, conference planning will bring contributions which reflect new findings related to the Smart Specialization Strategy, as well as findings relevant for future industrial and innovation policy.
