On 9 December 2021, the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA) is organizing an informative webinar to learn more about the Interregional Innovation Investment Work Programme (I3) 2021-2022.
The I3 WP aims at promoting innovation through Smart Specialisation and interregional collaboration. The I3 supports stronger interregional cooperation in investments and makes sustainable connections by linking regional ecosystems in shared smart specialisation areas vital to accelerate market uptake of research results and stimulate innovation. Therefore its focus is on:
Strand 1 – Financial and advisory support for investments in interregional innovation projects
Strand 1 targets partnerships to help them accelerate market uptake and scale-up of innovative solutions in shared smart specialisation priority areas, as well as to develop a portfolio of investment projects.
Strand 2a – Financial and advisory support to the development of value chains in less developed regions
Strand 2a focuses on increasing the capacity of regional innovation ecosystems in less developed regions to participate in global value chains, as well as the capacity to participate in partnerships with other regions.
