Veneto S3 Strategy

S3 Strategy

What is the Smart Specialisation Strategy (S3)?

The Intelligent Specialisation Strategy is the tool that, since 2014, the regions and member states of the European Union have had to adopt to identify objectives, priorities, and actions capable of maximising the effects of investments in research and innovation, aiming to concentrate resources on the areas of specialisation characteristic of each territory.


In this context, it requires that all the actors in the territory work together to define territorial development objectives that provide concrete answers to the current challenges, in line with the goals proposed by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the European Green Deal, the Plan for the Recovery of Europe (Next Generation EU) and the related national (PNRR) and regional initiatives (for instance: Veneto towards 2030, Veneto Sostenibile).
