Smart Europe Regional Peer Review in Veneto: intense, challenging, productive!
Boosting the creation of innovative companies
In the context of the Smart Europe INTERREG IVC project, 10 experts from AER, ALMI, Maramures, Flevoland, Patras and Bologna joined forces and brains for a one-week Peer Review in Veneto (I), from 25 February to 1 March. In order to find out how regions can boost the creation of innovative companies, peers were provided with extensive information on the regional economy and the activities of the different regional stakeholders. A tight schedule of interviews and visits to various business incubators and accelerators allowed them to better identify new ways to grasp the high R&D and manufacturing potential of Veneto. As a result, peers insisted on strengthening the role of the region as a catalyst and a facilitator for innovative business ideas and gave practical advice on how this could be implemented.
