Connecting regional and smart specializations

Connecting regional and smart specializations

Dear Sir, Dear Madam,

On 23 April 2015 in Brussels the West Pomeranian Region together with the Central European Transport Corridor – European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation Ltd. is keeping the international debate entitled “Connecting regional and smart specializations towards innovative solutions”, organized within the Visegard Fund’s project.

I would be grateful if you could join us and take active part in the discussion on the smart specializations as the way to boost Central Europe’s development.

During the debate both the CETC-EGTC and other CE regions’ specializations will be presented. We will learn the Croatia – European newcomer’s point of view on the issue. A discussion focused on evidencing and exploring areas of joint as well as detached interests of the CE regions is expected. We are going to ask participants whether differences among regional specializations can induce and raise the progress’s dynamics and how to take advantage and exploit them for the most effective development. How CE specializations should be combined with the ones of high developed European regions’ to build smart and advantageous Europe? The answers to these questions will construct the core and shell for CETC-EGTC, Visegard Group and Central European regions’ proximate measures. We are expecting the representatives of the CE regional authorities, other European agendas, the Committee of the Regions’ members as well as the CETC-EGTC Ltd. partnership.

The debate will be held from 11:00-14:30 in the Elisabeth room of the Leopold Hotel, 35 Rue Du Luxembourg, Brussels. Registration starts at 10:30. In case any queries arise, please, do not hesitate to contact us: Monika Matlegiewicz, mmatlegiewicz@wzp.pl or Agata Wosińska, awosinska@wzp.pl or Marta Ciesielska, mciesielska@wzp.pl, cetcsmart@wzp.pl.
