East Netherlands


East Netherlands selected for PRI Pilot Action

The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC) and the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) launched today the Pilot Action on Partnerships for Regional Innovation (PRI). East Netherlands is one among the 48 member regions and cities that will take part in the PRI pilot. 

PRI is a complementary approach building on positive experiences with smart specialisation strategies (S3). Its goal is to test tools for better coordination and directionality of regional, national and EU innovation policies towards implementation of the twin transition and tackling the innovation divide in the EU.

The Partnerships will feed into the new European Innovation Agenda, where innovation drives the transformation for sustainability, connecting local strategies with EU-level initiatives. ERRIN submitted its response to the European Commission’s call for evidence for the development of the Innovation Agenda initiative last week, learn more here.
