1 CONTEXT OF LITHUANIAN VALLEYS IN SMART SPECIALIZATION Ramojus Reimeris 2015 05 28 Janas Mateika, Battle of Grunwald, 1878

2 MOSTA State budgetary institution established by the Ministry for Education and Science of the Republic of Lithuania (April 27, 2007) which: Provides recommendations on the development of the national research, higher education (HE) and innovation system Organizes research HE and innovation monitoring Analyses the conditions of Lithuanian research, HE and innovation system Participates in development and implementation of research, HE and innovation policy

3 What is a Lithuanian Valley? Valley is a potential of research, studies and knowledge intensive business (the entirety of entities), usually concentrated in single area, with a common or related infrastructure, purposefully contributing to the knowledge society and knowledge economy and the competitiveness of the Lithuanian economy Concept of integrated research, study and business valleys, Government of Republic of Lithuania (2014)

4 Valleys and R&D infrastructure specialization

5 Valley investments 96 36 136 Investments into laboratory equipment, MoES funds Investments into buildings, MoES funds Investments into infrastructure, MoE funds Mln. Eur. Source: Ministry of Education and Science 23 R&D infrastructure projects, total 269 mln. Eur.

6 Why Smart Specialization is an imperative? Cohesion Funds 2007-2013: 86 billion € for innovation. IMPACT?: Lack of inter-institutional coordination Regions invest in „fashionable“ areas creating overlap No critical mass Aiming at R&I capacity building, lack of concentration on results European R&D gap with US and Asia Lessons learned: Transformation requires resource concentration Need to improve policy development and implementation Extra: economical crisis: a) greater orientation towards efficiency; b) need to strengthen economic competitiveness

7 Valleys ? Concept of Smart Specialization Strategic imperative: It‘s an integrated, place-based economic transformation agenda that: 1.focuses policy support and investments on key regional priorities, challenges and needs for knowledge-based development 2.builds on each region’s strengths, competitive advantages and potential for excellence 3.supports technological as well as practice-based innovation and aim to stimulate private sector investment 4.gets stakeholders fully involved and encourages innovation and experimentation evidence-based and includes sound monitoring and evaluation systems Administrative imperative: 1.Implementation of European agenda: Europe 2020, Innovation union, Horizon 2020 2.Ex-ante conditionality of the new Cohesion Policy 2014-2020, aimed at increasing the impact of structural support for research and innovation

8 Development of Smart specialization in Lithuania Why Lithuania? One of the first EU regions to develop Smart specialization strategy Among the very first EU regions to submit Smart specialization strategy for review (DG REGIO and DG RTD) Among the very first EU regions to fulfill the ex-ante conditionality Selected as a best practice case in multiple events Consultation partner for Smart specialization platform

9 The process: From analysis to implementation Priority field Priorities Roadmaps Priority implementation plans 6 broad Priority fields 20 Priorities within 6 broad Priority fields For every Priority (total 20 roadmaps) Developed according to roadmaps (total 20 plans) Analysis of challenges, research potential and structure of economy In-depth analysis in every Priority field + expert panels Expert panels + broad survey Consultation with National expert institutions + implementing ministries 1 2 3 4

10 „Priority field“ and „Priority“ Priority field – response to the global and national challenges by Lithuanian R&I system. Priority – new technologies or processes that have high potential to transform Lithuanian economy. What‘s new? Entrepreneurial discovery Concentration on results Intersectorial / interdisciplinary approach Identification and implementation of priorities as an inclusive process

11 Development of strategy and Valley involvement Steering group by ministries and implementing agencies Research and innovation strategic council under PM Steering committee International independent expert group Analytics MOSTA Expert panels Valleys

12 Priority fields PRIORITY FIELDS R&D potential Economic potential ChallengesValleys Agro-innovation and food technologies Prospective„Consumers“ Most important Nemunas Energy and sustainable environment High or prospective „Consumers“ (excl. IT) Most important + survey Saulėtekis, Santara, Santaka, Nemunas Health technologies and biotechnology High „Creators“ and „Consumers“ Most important Santara, Santaka Inclusive and creative society Prospective„Consumers“ (excl. IT) Most important + survey - Novel production processes, materials and technologies High„Creators“ and „Consumers“ Most important Saulėtekis, Santaka, Santara Transport, logistics and information and communication technologies Prospective„Consumers“ (excl. IT) Most important Saulėtekis, Santaka, Santara, Marine

13 Priorities Agro-innovation and food technologies Safer food and sustainable usage of biomaterials Functional food Innovative development, improvement and processing of biological raw materials (biorefinery) Energy and sustainable environment Smart systems for energy efficiency, diagnostic, monitoring, metering and management of generators, grids and customers Energy and fuel production using biomass/waste and waste treatment, storage and disposal Technology for the development and use of smart low-energy buildings – digital construction Solar energy installations and technologies for using them for the power generation, heating and cooling Health technologies and biotechnology Molecular technologies for medicine and biopharmaceutics Advanced applied technologies for individual and public health Advanced medical engineering for early diagnostics and treatment Inclusive and creative society Modern self-development technologies and processes promoting formation of creative and productive individuals Technologies and processes for the development and implementation of breakthrough innovations Novel production processes, materials and technologies Photonic and laser technologies Functional materials and coatings Structural and composite materials Flexible technological systems for product development and fabrication Transport, logistics and information and communication technologies Advanced electronic content, content development technologies and information interoperability ICT infrastructure, cloud computing solutions and services Smart transport systems and ICT Technologies/models for the international transport corridors’ management and integration of modes of transport

14 Synergy and potential Valleys Geographical concentration Smart specialization Thematical concentration Synergy Potential

15 Further development Valleys Employment of infrastructure Political attention for activities Funding for research Smart specialization Based on the Valleys potential Dependent on success of Valleys projects Gateway for regional dimension
