The discussion will focus on two main topics:

  • technology-driven challenges related to CH – which links to the RIS3 idea of prioritisation;
  • cross-innovation vectors involving CH – linked to the RIS3 concept of relatedness. (discussion facilitated by Prof. Christer Gustafsson from the University of Uppsala)

The workshop agenda, designed by partners of the Horizon 2020 ROCK project, including EUROCITIES and TASO, will include:

  • introductory statement by the European Commission (Framing CH at the innovation policy),
