POCTEFA COMPET’plus project selected to organise a side event in the European Week of Regions and Cities

The partners of the POCTEFA COMPET’plus project, are organising a side event at the EU Regions and Cities Week which will focus on how smart specialisation strategies can play a decisive role in boosting competitiveness in cross-border regions.

The event aims to present and discuss the method and results, with a focus on how it can be used to advance cross-border cooperation. Through the session, we want to discuss what can be the role of border regions to become a smart, sustainable, and inclusive economy. It is also a space to discuss the role of digitalization and platform-based collaboration for opening new areas and types of interaction among regions and various stakeholders’ groups. Finally, the session will approach how to materialize this cooperation by creating cross-border clusters and innovation platforms. As the Compet’plus project, follows on from the POCTEFA Competitiv’eko project, we will introduce the 3 cross-border clusters that exist (INNOVMEDICA, BIGDATIA and ADDITIVALLEY) and present examples of companies involved in the clusters and their experiences.
