Smart Strategies to create innovation-based jobs in regions of Europe
SMART EUROPE is based on the concept that smart and targeted regional policies and interventions can be designed to boost the employment directly in the regional innovation-based sectors. With this aim, a consortium of 13 partners, representing 11 EU regions, exchange policies and instruments for identifying and supporting the main regional economic actors that can generate job opportunities in the innovation based sectors of their economy. SMART EUROPE supports decision makers to improve their strategies with the aim of incorporating the creation of employment as an additional key feature of their activities.
This project is supported by the INTERREG IVC programme
The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers
