8 -9 October there will be in Canary Islands a workshop about Blue Growth and Smart Specialisation.  Most countries and regions across Europe now have in place Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation (RIS3), as a result of the European Union's new results orientated Cohesion Policy. They now face the challenge of moving from strategy making to implementation, through tailored policy mixes and tools, including the use of European Structural and Investment Funds. To help launch this process, this workshop will bring together national and regional policy makers that identified 'Blue Growth' as a priority in their RIS3.

The workshop is part of 13th Open Day (Bruxelles 12 – 15 October) and  is organised jointly by the government of the Canary Islands and the S3 Platform.

The objectives of the workshop are to:

Understand how blue growth has been prioritized and framed in RIS3; Discuss blue growth solutions proposed by industry, researchers and other stakeholders; Examine possible blue growth policy mixes including the use of European funds;

Explore possibilities for transnational cooperation projects.
