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)
