Participants will jointly discuss related policy conclusions and good practices. Focusing on how regional and national actors can work together to develop effective monitoring mechanisms will central to the discussions. Special emphasis will be given to open data platforms that can more easily engage stakeholders and the interested public by using internet technologies.

In the second part, the workshop will focus on the impact that the smart specialization strategy will have for transnational cooperation, and especially for business activities and networks. Participants will present different initiatives aimed at promoting this cooperation in the new framework. A special emphasis will be given to the role that social economy has this model.

In parallel, during the afternoon of the 11th and the morning of the 12th of December,  a small group of experts and practitioners (invitation is required) will continue the discussion in a small-scale working group which will develop a 'proto-type' for a generic monitoring mechanism.
