EStIF 1/17 – Special Issue on Smart Specialisation

Under the lead of guest editor Laura Polverari from the EPRC of the University of Strathclyde, the first issue of EStIF in 2017 is devoted to Smart Specialisation as a new and necessary dimension of ESIF programmes. With the 2014-2020 Common Provisions Regulation the design of Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3s) has become a requirement for ESIF programmes. Our authors take this opportunity to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of the design process.

As a special treat Lexxion offers two articles of the Special Issue for free!
