MONITORIS3 Project aims to address the CHALLENGE on MONITORING of the Regional Specialization Strategies (S3) developed by Regions as ex-ante conditionality for implementing Structural Funds.
The project´s MAIN GOAL is to facilitate the IMPROVEMENT OF S3 RELATED STRUCTURAL FUNDS POLICIES DELIVERY through promotion of exchange of experiences and policy learning on MONITORING STRATEGIES OF POLICY INSTRUMENTS among a consortium of regionally relevant actors on S3. MONITORIS3 is supported by the following specific ACTIVITIES and OUTPUTS:
- ONE INTERREGIONAL MAPPING OF S3 MONITORING STRATEGIES AT INTERREGIONAL LEVEL (on 9 preselected POLICY INSTRUMENTS): Regional (partners) “Stay of play” analysis at the beginning of the project.
- INTERREGIONAL POLICY LEARNING PROCESS through 8 INTERREGIONAL THEMATIC SEMINARS around 4 WORKING GROUPS to organize the 9 policy instruments addressed, with active involvement of regional STAKEHOLDERS GROUPS.
- BEST PRACTICES (BBPP) SELECTION and PEER-TO-PEER process (7 STUDY VISITS) to ensure the best introduction of selected BBPP by each region and thus facilitate the exchange.
- 6 REGIONAL ACTION PLANS ON S3 MONITORING elaborated on the basis of selected practices to be transferred to each region around the 9 policy instruments selected.
To achieve these objectives, MONITORIS3 gathers 6 partners from 6 EU Regions and 1 advisory partner with competences on implementing and/or monitoring S3.
