Panel discussion on fostering strategic #InterregionalCollaboration.
Alin-Adrian Nica, Member of the European Committee of the Regions, Mayor of Dudeștii Noi Timiș County:
“The European Union can be considered as a cluster of states. Therefore, the #SmartSpecialisation Strategies (S3) should aim at canalysing regional and local investments in the main competency areas of a given territory”.
Enrico Venturini Degli Esposti, project manager of TEX4IM:
“My keywords for smart interregional collaboration are #skills, #dialogue and #TechnologicalInnovation. How about organising thematic events about such topics between different regions?”
Vladimir Danailow, CEO of Sofia Investment Agency:
“#DigitalTransition can really be the most appropriate answer to address the big challenges we need to face nowadays.”
Michael Keller, Lead Partner, INTERREG Alpine S3-AlpClusters:
“Unlike the efforts of the #EuropeanCommission, we still don’t have such a solid cluster policy framework in #Switzerland. These strategies for interregional collaboration should provide a good inspiration for further development in my country”.
