9 Place based dimension of the RIS3

10 WEST REGION – COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE Regional Economy growing region; traditional industrial area; business locations; clustering Strategic location border area; TEN T Network; international airports High Quality of Human Resources young; good coverage of all qualification levels; diversity and multiculturality Quality of Life good cost of living; tourism; unique natural elements; rich natural resources Advanced Services Costumers services; Headquarter for multinational company

11 Key challenges for West Region : to stay attractive strategic planning and programming offering professional services to investors putting into practice the cluster initiatives … West Region a smart specialization region

12 Achieving critical mass

13 West Region - first Romanian Region that developed RIS Priority set up after 2 years of consultation and debate: questionaire to SMSs - 50 interviews to research units - 25 tehnologic audits International Partener: Tehnological Institute Aragon International Consultant: Infyde Basque Country Pillot projects from RIS : Tehimpuls, Automotivest, Regional Innovation Pole on ICT sector (including TA financed by EC)

14 second RIS for West Region

15 General Objective Speeding up the economic development of the West Region by integrating innovation and knowledge into the public policies and the current activity of the enterprises, in order to increase the competitiveness of innovative products and services on the global market.

16 RIS strategic axes: 1.Supporting the innovation infrastructure, which generates added value in terms of RDI products/solutions/technologies 1.Supporting innovation in enterprises, also relying on their internationalization 1.Promoting the innovation culture at regional level

17 RIS horizontal theme: The use of instruments that are specific to the information society Human resources Eco-innovation

18

19 Outward-oriented aspects of the RIS

20 Regional authority is well connected to relevant institutions outside the region: member of Innovating Regions in Europe - IRE network, Europe Innova, Smart Specialization Platform RIS West Region was made in the same time with the South East Region from Hungary RIS coach for Nord-West Region Romania International projects: WeSteer, Before Partnerships with regions and institutions from Spain, Irland, Germany, Italy, Greece

21 Prospects for an entrepreneurial process of discovery

22 50 companies are partners in the clustering activity 300 of questionnaires was apply to the company during the 2 sectorial studies (automotive and ICT) 35 audit to companies 20 vouchers 244 companies get financed from EC (Phare) and 125 companies get financed from ERDF (ROP ) Regional and Local public authority Business environment Capital, Financing oportunities Research Intermediary Universities Research institute Union Company

23 Future orientation of the S3 process

24 Every year we prepare a monitoring report

25 New indicators and targets RIS up - date RIS up - date RIS 2009 – 2013 have a monitoring and evaluation plan

26

27 Summary and next steps

28 West Region want to develop a new RIS for smart specialisation Needed to develop a regional innovation strategy for smart specialisation: – Trainning – Foresight exercise – Experts – Twinning – International Projects

29 Establish innovation as regional priority Funds for innovation in the next programming period Mechanism for monitoring and Correlation between planning and programming documents

34 FRESH & smart specialsiation 34 Smart specialisation - Selection - Related variety & entrepreneurship - Thematic, permanent international networks FRESH, through the eco innovation component - Selection - Partially also related variety through entrepreneurship (prioritsed projects in the eco innovation component) The 10 Steps and any resonance with FRESH STEP 1.Proposal for an overall Vision for the future of the region; YES STEP 2. RIS3 design and governance– Ensuring participation and ownership YES, through the regional advisory groups ( RAG:s) STEP 3.Analysis of regional potential for innovation-driven differentiation YES, but in relation to sustainable construction STEP 4.Preparation and wide discussion of scenarios YES, partially STEP 5.Selection of priorities for the RIS3 YES

35 FRESH & smart specialsiation 35 Smart specialisation - Selection - Related variety & entrepreneurship - Thematic, permanent international networks FRESH, through the eco innovation component - Selection - Partially also related variety through entrepreneurship (prioritsed projects in the eco innovation component) The 10 Steps and any resonance with FRESH STEP 6.Definition of coherent policy packages, pilot projects and measurable targets YES STEP 7.Integration of monitoring and evaluation mechanisms into the strategy YES; just now we are making the Policy audit tools for exactly this purpose STEP 8.Establishment of strategic policy intelligence resources and capacities NO, beyond FRESH STEP 9.Communication of the RIS3 Yes, but not exhaustively STEP 10.Review and update of the RIS3 Beyond FRESH

36 36 FRESH project: Contributes to smart specialisation strategies in the partner regions through the formulation of an eco innovation component, meant to reinforce the regional innovation startegies and addressing sustainable construction which, as a sector has been selected by all FRESH regions. Regions contenxtualise the eco innovation component by selecting to build on specific aspects of sustainable construction that are relvant to the regional potential.

37 SELECTION OF SUB SECTOR & RESULTS Sustainable construction (1) external environmental quality (site planning, landscaping of the construction waste when relevant);(2) resource consumption (energy, water, and other raw materials); 3) environmental weight (including CO2 emissions, waste management from the use phase of the construction, pollution during the construction and use phases, and ecology); (4) surface water run-off; 5) indoor environmental quality (including health and well being); 6) service quality; (7) management quality; 8) Urban and city planning; land use planning; 9) Transports Sustainable construction (1) external environmental quality (site planning, landscaping of the construction waste when relevant);(2) resource consumption (energy, water, and other raw materials); 3) environmental weight (including CO2 emissions, waste management from the use phase of the construction, pollution during the construction and use phases, and ecology); (4) surface water run-off; 5) indoor environmental quality (including health and well being); 6) service quality; (7) management quality; 8) Urban and city planning; land use planning; 9) Transports Partner on going innovation strategy priorities Successes in the field in the region i.e. Products, services, and or R&D, and how they compare with the innovation strategy priorities Partner region development interests, new priorities Sector / sub sector to focus; Types of measurements / targetes ot include; types of development actions / projects to prioritise Sector / sub sector to focus; Types of measurements / targetes ot include; types of development actions / projects to prioritise

38 Targets for West Region: Uptake of eco-innovation and sustainable construction into the RDP and RIS (Eurocodes, Breeam) Publish guidelines for sustainable construction Organize regional roadshow to promote sustainable construction solutions
