Call for expressions of interest to participate in the joint Committee of the Regions- Joint Research Centre European Commission Pilot Action on "Partnerships for Regional Innovation" (PRI)

The Partnerships for Regional Innovation are a complementary approach, which builds on positive experiences with smart specialisation strategies. The ambition is to test tools for a stronger directionality towards the twin transition, with economic, social and environmental sustainability, including at local level and in rural areas. It will also elaborate a platform facilitating EU-wide networks of networks.  The Pilot does not imply that the regions revise their strategies. It is complementary to strengthen synergies and the impact of innovation, including the development and diffusion of deep-tech technologies for solutions to sustainability challenges for all territories.

The main reference document underpinning the Partnerships for Regional Innovation - PRI Pilot Action will be the forthcoming "PRI Playbook", currently being developed by the JRC-European Commission with the support of a Scientific Committee of recognised experts.

Call closes 25 April 2022.
