date of publication > 13-June-2013

In the frame of the WIRE conference 2013, EUREKA presented its action at regional level. The conference is organised every year during the week of innovative regions in Europe and is the occasion for regional offices responsible for the support of innovative businesses to share good ideas and experiences.

Taking place this year in Cork, the WIRE conference was focused on the development of future regional innovation smart specialisation strategies, RIS³, an ex-ante condition for European regions to receive cohesion funds from the European Union.  In this frame, EUREKA encourages regional authorities to include an transnational component into their strategies, stimulating European regions to work together towards common goals in terms of technological specialisation.
