Project summary According to World Health Organization (WHO) "making cities and communities age-friendly is one of the most effective local policy approaches for responding to demographic change”. However, regional initiatives still lack alignment between absolutely complementary policy areas such as health, social affairs, territorial sustainable development, employment and wellbeing. This silo approach restrains the creation, availability and large-scale adoption of age-friendly solutions across Europe. Known is also the gap between technological developments and end-users real needs and expectations. Therefore, policy alignment, collaborative efforts and sharing of good practices will be keystones to add better quality of life, more inclusive and sustainable health and social care systems and citizen’s access to the services. The EU_SHAFE project will improve policies and practices in 7 European regions by developing a comprehensive approach to Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments (SHAFE). Through a 'learning by sharing' methodology, this robust multi-disciplinary and intersectoral consortium will build a four-helix European community to exchange experiences and practices to improve multilevel policy instruments. The consortium will create a cooperative, inclusive ecosystem between public authorities, European networks and user’s associations, embedding their experience and skills with research & design knowledge from academia and SMEs for the growth of community-based services and “ageing at home” around Europe. • EU_SHAFE will Invest in policy design and adaptation of regional instruments derived from ETCF (R&I priorities) and ESF (Social Inclusion), through the creation of a large Euro-local network of stakeholders that will work together in ecosystems towards a common model – a White Paper on SHAFE. • Select and re-design concrete and scalable interventions in the area of social innovation for SHAFE, that may be implemented as realistic innovative models for the future. €1,500,110.00 from 1 Aug 2019 to 31 Jul 2023 Topic Research and innovation Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Centro Regional Operational Programme 2014 - 2020 (CCI 2014PT16M20P002) - AXIS 1 Research, Development and Innovation (IDEAS) and AXIS 5 Strengthen Social and Territorial Cohesion (APPROACH and CONVERGE) The Centro 2020 Regional Operational Programme (ROP) is the main funding instrument available to the region for the implementation of its development strategy in the period 2014-2020. ROP Centro has available about €2,155m from EU funds: €1,751m (ERDF) and €404m (European Social Fund). The use of European funds under the ROP Centro 2020 will be geared primarily to strengthening the competitiveness of the companies based in the region and job creation. It will also be given particular emphasis on the efficient use of resources and the social inclusion of disadvantaged people. 10 strategic priorities have been established within the programme. EU_SHAFE intends to approach: - AXIS 1 Research, Development and Innovation - IDEAS (€169m) - Business investment in innovation and research and synergies between companies, R & D centers and higher education in networks and clusters through intelligent specialization - AXIS 5 Strengthen Social and Territorial Cohesion - APPROACH and CONVERGE (€155m) – specifically in investments in health and social infrastructures. These two axis are both contributing for the implementation of SHAFE but in need of more articulation in terms of transversal initiatives and funding, also with RIS3 platforms. In this sense, the main aim is to articulate these two axes with platforms 3 (quality of life technology) and 4 (territorial innovation) aiming at changing their framework and allowing the launch of new calls / initiatives to be funded around SHAFE. Which partners are working on this? Caritas Coimbra Welfare technology development fund (VTU Fund) The welfare technology program statement was adopted by the parties to the Aarhus municipality's budget agreement for 2013-2016. The text is contained in "Conciliation on the 2013 2013-2016 - Reinforced and Strengthened Out of the crisis", September 21, 2012. Welfare technology can increase citizens' safety, security and the ability to handle daily chores and mobility inside and outside the home. Welfare technology thus increases self-reliance and better quality of life for the primary target groups like older people, chroniclers and citizens with disabilities. The purpose of the welfare technology development fund is to spread the use of technological solutions across the municipal organizations, for the benefit of both citizens and enterprises. The fund finances or co-finances concrete welfare technology demonstration, test, development and implementation projects and strategic efforts. The purpose is to investigate the potentials and gains of a particular technological solution and assess whether it makes sense to introduce the solution on a large scale. However, the priorities associated to Health and building environments are separate from here and individually addressed. Therefore, the main improvement to deliver will be to understand the better mechanism to promote an integrative approach on Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments that can be reflected on policy recommendations and even reshaping this policy instrument. Which partners are working on this? Center for Assisted Living Technology - Aarhus Municipality Operational Programme for the Implementation of the EU Cohesion Policy in the Period 2014-2020 Operational Programme for the Implementation of the EU Cohesion Policy has three main overall aims: 1) finding way to economic recovery and breaking the trend of Slovenia's moving away from the average EU development level; 2) Ensuring prosperity for all citizens; 3) Putting a decisive stop to passive, cyclical changes by transforming them into lasting structural improvements. It has several priority axes. In the project, the focus will be on one priority axe: “Social inclusion and poverty reduction." Each priority axe has several specific objectives. The aim in SHAFE will be to influence the specific objective: “improved economic and social inclusion in areas of local action groups (LAGs)”. The major challenge that aims to be addressed by improving the policy instrument on the area of SHAFE is the fast growing problem of demography change. The trend is that the demography change problem will be in the first place addressed mainly in urban areas and later in rural areas in Lijita region. With SHAFE there is the possibility to collect lessons learned for Regions which are more developed in this subject and therefore start addressing these major challenges in advance. Which partners are working on this? Development Centre of the Heart of Slovenia Basque Country ERDF Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020 Basque Country ERDF Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020 aims to boost sustainable economic growth in the region by creating quality jobs - especially in activities with high added value sectors, and improving the competitiveness of the regional economy through 'smart' and innovative growth initiatives. The ERDF OP is aligned with the Europe 2020 strategy and the Basque Regional Innovation Strategy (RIS3). The area of health, and especially the field of Active Ageing and Healthy living, is among the highest priorities for the region. The Programme focuses on six main areas, of which two of them are particularly relevant for the implementation of this action: - Strengthening research, technological development and innovation. The investment is targeted at enhancing research and innovation infrastructures and capacities as well as developing the links and synergies with enterprises, research centres, and high education, in line with the RIS3. - Enhancing access to, and use and quality of information and communication technologies. In the development of ICT products and services, e-commerce and enhancing demand for ICT, as well as strengthening ICT applications for e-government. It is also relevant to mention the ESF Operational Programme of the Basque Country being one of its objectives Fostering Social Inclusion and Fighting against Poverty and any Discrimination to promote active inclusion. Which partners are working on this? Provincial Council of Bizkaia University of Deusto Operational Programme Hamburg ERDF 2014-2020, Germany The OP sets, as one of the two main priorities, the strengthening of research, development and innovation. It has a comprehensive approach, as it aims at supporting them in all sectors and in diverse ways, improving the related infrastructures, promoting private investments, enhancing exchange between economy and science, providing valid financial options for young innovative enterprises. Within this priority framework and because of the current local population structure, the Hamburg Ministry of Health and Consumer Protection (BGV) recognizes the need to use innovation and research to face the different dimensions of demographic change and to develop effective financial models to support investment and project development in this field. The ministry would like to use the INTERREG opportunity to work on a new more effective, more integrated, more result-oriented project framework, which will increase the quantity and the quality of the local projects and initiatives related to demographic change adaptions. The BGV would like to develop triple helix synergies, involving in the policy design process from the beginning universities and businesses (preferably with young entrepreneurs and local SMEs), who are the actors that should initiate and promote new projects in this field, enabling co-design for the draft of a new regulatory framework and creating new project development opportunities for these targets group actions while identifying new demographic change related issues.

Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg Ministry of Social Affairs Regional Operational Program - European Regional Development Funds of the Campania Region CANCELLED The POR CAMPANIA FESR 2014-2020 is the programming document of the Region that constitutes the reference framework for the use of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) resources to guarantee the full convergence of Campania to European development strategies. The Program defines the strategy for regional growth by identifying 11 priority areas, being relevant: Enhancing and promoting R&I:514M€ Improving and extending access to ICT:349M€ Promoting social inclusion:152M€ Promoting urban development:286 M€ Campania has outlined its regional strategy in 3 lines of intervention, with 2 relevant to SHAFE: - development of innovation with actions to strengthen the public / private research and competitiveness support system by overcoming the critical factors of entrepreneurial development; - constitution of a welfare system oriented towards inclusion and participation, raising the level of quality of life through the reorganization of the health system, the development and promotion of personalized services, actions that promote employment, social inclusion and education. These strategic lines need to be implemented in accordance with specific programmatic requirements, articulating also with RIS3. The articulation between different axis and objectives relevant top the implementation of SHAFE is the main challenge to be addressed in the project and the expectation is that the interregional exchange may provide the best instruments to respond to this structural need. Which partners are working on this? Campania Region Border Midland and West Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020 The ERDF aims to strengthen economic and social cohesion in the European Union by correcting imbalances between its regions. seeks to contribute to the Union’s strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in an effort to address regional imbalances. The third Regional Operational Programme (ROP) for the Border, Midland and Western (BMW) Region is a funding package of €320 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Irish exchequer and invested in the region between 2014 and 2020. EU legislation sets out the objectives for the ERDF and has identified 11 Thematic Objectives to facilitate Member States in adopting a common approach to the design of their Regional Operational Programmes. As the BMW Region is classified as a ‘more developed’ region the regulation prescribes that at least 80% of the ERDF allocation has to focus on the first four Thematic Objectives, therefore the BMW Regional Operational Programme focuses on a limited number of priorities. The total fund is €320 million which is 50% co-funded by the ERDF. The relevant priorities for SHAFE are (total 222M€): Strengthening Research, Technological Development & Innovation in the BMW Region Enhancing access to, and use and quality of ICT Sustainable Urban Development The need of improvement is to align these priorities specific mechanisms with Louth County strategy for the implementation aof Age-Friendly Environments, with Health and Care provision, smart solutions and research activities Which partners are working on this?

Project summary Through POTEnT, communities will develop or improve energy services that are locally-owned. In this way their transition to a low-carbon economy will be quicker and deeper. POTEnT (Public Organisation Transform Energy Transition) innovatively addresses a key challenge for European cities and regions: how to achieve more carbon reduction by harnessing the potential of direct and local action by citizens and communities. The need is both great and urgent. The EU is committed by international treaty to achieve ambitious carbon reduction targets. Regional and local authorities can provide a positive alternative to the market-based provision of energy services. The POTENTIAL lies in their local connections, opportunities and accountability. However, they face many challenges in becoming actors in the energy market. First, they need to develop legal mechanisms, attract investment, acquire skills, engage communities. Second, many market-regulations are made at Member State level, so tailor-made solutions are required. The project’s objective is to reduce carbon emissions faster than “Business As Usual” through more and better energy services provided by local and regional authorities. 8 partners will: * analyse partners’ plans through two Thematic Events and eight Mentoring Days, * identify good practices that will improve these plans, studying them through Study Visits, importing them via special workshops and Regional Action Plans. * develop/improve public Energy Services Companies (ESCos) and increasing their “market-share” * build the capacity of all relevant public authorities including ERDF Managing Authorities * increase investments in low carbon projects, and inspire/empower local decision-makers and communities   The project’s main outputs will be focused on new energy transition solutions through: * New projects to increase investment in low carbon projects, inspire/empower local decision-makers and communities to achieve higher levels of carbon reduction * Improved governance by delivering policies to develop/improve public Energy Services Companies and transform existing mechanisms into "future-fit" organisations that will have a bigger impact on carbon reduction. €2,010,623.00 from 1 Aug 2019 to 31 Jul 2023 Topic Low-carbon economy Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Operational Programme ERDF/ESF Brittany: 2014-2020 MAIN FEATURES The fields of intervention of the ERDF in Brittany focus in particular on the development of renewable energies, with in particular Action 311 of the ROP-Supporting the development of renewable energy production and distribution capacities in Brittany. Priority is given to pilot industrial parks and testing. In the field of methanisation, support is granted within the framework of "industrial" projects, innovative or collective projects or integrated into local energy loops. The conversion of biomass energy is also supported area. The Region wishes to develop the production and storage of renewable energies and intelligent energy systems implemented within the framework of integrated energy management. WHY IT SHOULD BE IMPROVED In the field of renewable energies, significant help is given to project investment support, but the organisations that can take these projects to an industrial scale are poorly connected with the territories. The interface needs-achievements must be built in order to allow the emergence of integrated renewable energy development sectors. The city of Lorient is developing a municipal utility company (ESCo), and POTEnT will help in creating the right conditions for the effective deployment of the desired investments and for the take up of energy ownership initiatives. The arrangements for creating local energy loops, which are for now instruments of cooperation, can also be improved to enable to acquire operational investment capacity Which partners are working on this? ALOEN – Energy and climate local agency of South Brittany Emilia-Romagna ERDF Regional Operation Programme 2014-2020 MAIN FEATURES The objective of the ROP ERDF (Promotion of the low carbon economy in regions and in the production system-Priority axis 4) is to stimulate energy efficiency and savings and the development of renewable sources both by public bodies and enterprises with a view to regional sustainable development both in terms of protecting the environment and cutting energy costs. The recipients of the policies are public bodies or companies, both through capital grants and through a revolving fund directed to the production system. The intended results include: reducing the energy consumption of production processes for industrial businesses and public buildings by 20% and increasing businesses’ energy production from renewable resources by 20% and self-consumption by 25%. WHY IT SHOULD BE IMPROVED There is a lack of direct policy to directly involve citizens both in terms of reducing consumption (eg residential sector - condominiums or public structures-sports facilities managed by associations) and as regards the production of renewable energy (eg small renewable energy plants built in collaboration with citizens gathered in cooperatives or building solar platforms available to citizens). In addition to identifying these new targets, towards which investment support measures must be adopted, it is necessary to develop new business models, both from a legal, financial and tariff point of view, for shared public/private management, even for already existing small plants. Which partners are working on this? Parma Municipality Navarra ERDF 2014-20 Operational Programme MAIN FEATURES: The Navarra ROP includes the TO4: Support the transition to a low-carbon economy in all sectors. It only considers the IP 4c: Support for energy efficiency, intelligent management of energy and the use of renewable energy in public infrastructure, including public buildings, and in housing, with a single specific objective on providing Subsidies to improve the buildings’ envelop for their energetic regeneration.   WHY IT SHOULD BE IMPROVED: Navarra has a positive evolution in relation to GHG emissions and Energy Efficiency (EE), and is a reference on renewable energy sources (RES) at national level. Despite these positive aspects, it is difficult to achieve some of the objectives set out in the European 2020 Strategy (specifically the reduction of GHG emissions) and the Region presents one of the highest per capita consumption ratios at the national level. Several strategic strengths such as the RES sector of the region are not specifically defined within the actions listed by the ROP. What needs to be improved in this context is the connection between citizens and local stakeholders and the energy and climate policies and instruments. Local authorities are key players in the energy sector as they are the level of public authority working more closely with citizens, associations, non profit organizations and SMEs in the energy sector; local energy action plans and projects are a key factor in fulfilling the ROP objectives. Which partners are working on this? Pamplona City Council Milton Keynes Energy, Water and Carbon Strategy to 2050 and beyond The Energy and Carbon Strategy builds upon the Low Carbon Living Strategy 2010 and Low Carbon Action Plan 2011. It embodies the feedback from MK citizens from the research for the MK2050 Roadmap which was adopted by Cabinet in 2015. The strategy is an overview of how a low carbon environment interacts with other Milton Keynes Council (MKC) policies and citizens to provide energy resilience, reduce carbon emissions, save energy and meet statutory reduction targets. The strategy aims are to: - Provide energy resilience for the city - Reduce expenditure on energy for MKC buildings and processes - Reduce carbon emissions across all sectors (domestic, commercial and transport) - Engage with all stakeholders to promote the benefits of low carbon lifestyle and behaviour - Encourage water efficiency.   The policy identifies themes for action and evaluates the potential for these to enable the city to meet it goals, but does not identify specific actions or projects.   POTEnT will identify and evaluate the practicality of key projects in each of the main themes to enable the city to meet the objectives of the Strategy and willl address the concerns of both citizens and commerce to ensure support for the actions. The evaluation of each theme will include the local rationale and financial analysis to enable business models to be developed, ultimately leading to a case for funding each of these. In each case, the potential sources of funding will be identified. Which partners are working on this? Milton Keynes Council Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan of City of Ostrava City of Ostrava will improve its own policy instrument - Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan of City of Ostrava (SEAP/SECAP, adopted in 2018). This is follow-up policy after Sustainable Energy Action Plan of City of Ostrava adopted in 2014. The main objective of SEAP/SECAP is to reduce CO2 emissions by more than 40 % by 2030 (as compared to the year of 2000) by adopting mitigation and adaptation measures.   The Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan of City of Ostrava contains measures to reduce CO2 emissions by the: implementation of energy management and energy-saving measures in public buildings, in sector of other services and in housing sector, modernization of heating systems and boilers, greening of public transport, organizational and economic measures in transport and measures in the new construction.   The strategy also includes energy measures that cannot be performed and fulfilled by the city itself. The aim is to find new approaches to engage all relevant stakeholders – not just public organizations but mainly private sector, which in fact, has the appropriate means to create new opportunities in the field of sustainable production and energy distribution which can contribute to and support the implementation of new market models. Which partners are working on this? City of Ostrava Green Kronoberg 2025 The Regional Development Strategy for Kronoberg County 2015-2025 (RUS) is indicative for the work on sustainable regional development. The actuality of the strategy is tested every four years. The target picture is Gröna (Green) Kronoberg - Open and sustainable habitats with renewal skills.   AIM The starting point is that RUS is a tool that will help to achieve the goals of regional growth policy by creating better conditions for sustainable regional development, by setting the investment priorities. Coordination between RUS and municipalities overview planning is particularly sought.   OBJECTIVE 2025 (1 out of 6) Heading towards a PLUS ENERGY county. 80% of total energy use in 2025 in Kronoberg County will be from renewable sources.   OBJECTIVE 2050 Kronoberg County strives to become a PLUS ENERGY county in 2050 The goal is positioning - Kronoberg County will be the greenest region and accelerate development towards a circular economy, where one of the principles is to use renewable energy as well as achieving a positive footprint in terms of resource utilization.   REASON FOR IMPROVEMENT The policy will be tested every fourth year and renewed every tenth. Input to these revisions is key to improve the strategy. For the Plus Energy target no detailed roadmap exists and the way to reach the goal is unclear. Transnational learnings and capacity building through POTEnT will give input to next version of the RUS and a plan to be a PLUS ENERGY County Which partners are working on this? Energy Agency for Southeast Sweden Republic of Estonia: Operational Program for Cohesion Policy Funds 2014¬2020 MAIN FEATURES The Operational Programme (OP) for Cohesion Policy Funds is a multifund programme, bringing together investments from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Cohesion Fund and aimed at contributing to the delivery of the European Union's strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and to the achievement of economic, social and territorial cohesion. In particular: Priority axis 2.6 Energy Efficiency Investment priority 1: Supporting energy efficiency, smart energy management and renewable energy use in public infrastructure, including in public buildings, and in the housing sector; Specific objective 1: Energy efficient housing sector and street lighting, and increased share of renewable energy in final consumption. Priority axis 2.9 Sustainable Urban development: supporting sustainable development strategies of five larger urban areas in Estonia, one of them being Tartu WHY IT SHOULD BE IMPROVED The Development Plan of Tartu City 2018-2025 bases on OP for Cohesion Policy Funds. Sustainable urban development, technical and user-centred infrastructures can be ensured with smart energy management. As municipalities are looking for tools to develop energy efficiency and most energy providers are privately owned and not motivated to make additional investments in smart energy management. It is important to improve cooperation between stakeholders to develop sustainable energy planning for CO2 emissions reduction Which partners are working on this? Tartu Regional Energy Agency Stadtwerke Ettlingen Corporate Strategy STATE OF PLAY The company’s Corporate Strategy is a policy that Stadtwerke Ettlingen (SWE) is continuously revising to keep up with the evolving energy market. The company primary objective is to provide its customers with a secure and cost-effective supply of energy and energy services. In addition to these economic objectives, which are geared to competitiveness, SWE as a municipal company also pursues non-material goals, for example: - improving the IT security and the integration of the blockchain technology - reduce further the GHG emissions from the energy production, distribution and consumption at the clients’ level, including the city itself - facilitate the transition towards further increased Low-Carbon Economy.   WHY IT SHOULD BE IMPROVED The improvement of SWE's own policy instrument is necessary to maintain SWE's competitiveness on the energy market and to remain a central player in the implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement at local level. The integration of digitalisation is the biggest challenge SWE is facing after the liberalisation of the energy market at the beginning of this century. It requires an in depth review and improvement of the corporate strategy. Digitalisation aims to systematically improve energy use and energy efficiency in the long term. Unused energy efficiency potentials are to be tapped, energy costs reduced and greenhouse gas emissions reduced in order to make a valuable contribution to climate protection.

Project summary WE ARE 6 partners from 5 different countries, regional and local councils, public development agencies and universities, sharing good practices on circular economy, involving research capacities to empower local authorities and to improve regional public policies. In France, HESAM Université and the Regional Council of Burgundy-Franche-Comté ;In Spain, the Provincial Council of Grenada ;In the Netherlands , Van Hall Larenstein University from North-East Friesland ;In Romania, the Regional Development Agency of Centru ;In Czech Republic, the Central Bohemia Innovation Centre.WE BELIEVECircular economy is a cross-cutting issue which does not fit into sector-bound policiesLocal authorities are key players to make circular economy solutions happenInnovative cooperations with the research community can help local authorities address this issue of circular economy and its local governance.WE DO identify and mobilize stakeholder groups in each of the 5 partner regions,help create new collaborations between local authorities and researchers on circular economy,meet every semester in one of our partner countries, every time different, to learn more on the regional policy and activities on circular economy (methodology, key players, difficulties),share good practices.  €1,209,041.00 from 1 Aug 2019 to 31 Jul 2023 Topic Environment and resource efficiency Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Franche Comté Operational Programme. Priority 3 : Ensuring a sustainable development of Franche Comte by reducing energy consumption. Specific objective 3.1 Develop renewable energy production building on its potential (timber, methanisation, geothermy) Until quite recently, Burgundy-Franche-Comté was not one but 2 different regions. A challenge is to expand the policy to the new perimeter. The targetted policy instrument aims at increasing the production of renewable energies. Expected beneficiaries are local authorities, energy unions, social housing landlords, agricultural cooperatives, etc. There are 2 main reasons why this policy should be improvedThere is work to be done upstream within each local authority and community in the early stages of projects, to identify and support them locally very early on, and therefore help to increase the number and quality of projects applying for funding.The production of renewable energy can no longer be addressed on its own. Primary (woodlands, river streams…) or secondary resources (eg agrowastes), used to produce renewable energy, are part of a broader ecological, social and economic system; e.g. the region has a very important forest resource which is exploited in energy but also meet the needs for silviculture, recovery of by-products of local industries and end-of-life wood valuation. A circular economy approach could make them work together, both individually and as a whole. Which partners are working on this? Burgundy-Franche-Comté Regional Council HESAM University Integrated Regional Operational Programme (IROP), 2014-2020, Czech Republic Priority axis 4 – “Community-led local development”, Investment priority 9d “Investing in community-led local development strategies”, Specific objective 4.1 ”Strengthening community-led local development to improve the quality of life in rural areas and mobilizing local potential”   In comparison with other EU countries, the Czech Republic is home to many more self-governed municipalities. Approximately 80% of the municipalities have fewer than 1,000 inhabitants and have the most serious problems in providing basic services to the population. The highest number of small municipalities is located in the Central Bohemia. All rural areas of the Czech Republic have similar characteristics (poor basic services and infrastructure, poor functioning of local economy, transport or insufficient use of resources) Central Bohemia has to deal much more with intraregional disparities. Peripheral territories are mostly rural and sparsely populated. The metropolitan part with the capital in the middle is overpopulated . In the context of thse disparities and (global) trends, innovative solutions and policy instruments are becoming part of municipal interest. The role of Local Action Groups (LAGs) represent the "bottom-up" approach of community-led local development as a main feature of the priority axis 4. This axis contributes to the fulfilment of Thematic objectives (including Preserving and protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency). Which partners are working on this? Central Bohemian Innovation Centre “Acceleration Agenda: NorthEast Friesland Regiodeal ” Regiodeal North East Friesland aims to improve the region of North East Friesland by tackling the development challenges associated with a decreasing active population and resource shrinkage. The ambition is to increase the Gross Regional Product (GRP) by € 400 million in 2025 through innovation, lifelong learning and partnership. The main issue at stake is the embedding of a circular economy (CE) in the region that is both economically and ecologically viable. More specifically an area-oriented CE should contribute to an increase in: income; local GRP; labour; education level and inhabitants. Furthermore, sustainability theme’s like biodiversity, landscape, nature and energy are important rural policy issues. A major measure in the RegioDeal consists in a Fjildlab (Living Lab). It is structured as a quadruple helix, based on a cooperation between local authorities and stakeholders. The cooperation mechanisms of the Fjildlab are key to its success. How can the governance arrangements be monitored and improved? How can local authorities ensure a smooth landing of innovations coming from the Fjildlab in their community? How can research support local authorities ? Knowledge of effects of area-oriented CE is required to give permits, locational policy/site policy and to develop/change policy on biodiversity, nature, landscape etc. Important as well is that the Fjildlab will give insight in which policies are obstructing so policy can be changed or exemption can be granted. Which partners are working on this? Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences ROP 2014-2020, Centru region ; Priority Axis 13 (PA 13) – “Support of urban regeneration of small and medium urban areas”, Investment priority 9b. “Providing support for physical, economic and social regeneration of deprived communities in urban and rural areas.” Specific objective 13.1 (SO 13.1) “Improvement of the life quality of the community in small and medium urban areas in Romania”. PA13 aims to enhance the life quality of the urban population and supports physical, economic and social regeneration of deprived small and medium communities (under 100.000 inhabitants). Its implementation involves multi-stakeholders cooperation including local authorities, social services and health, education, culture, religion, social assistance or non-governmental organizations. The projects can be implemented by local authorities and/or partnerships between local authorities and NGOs. During the preparation of the programming period 2014-2020, circular economy was not recognized as a policy priority area in the European Union. Therefore, within ROP 2014-2020 are applied only the principles of sustainable development and equality as horizontal priorities meaning that those projects that make an effort to integrate effectively the horizontal priorities into the project will receive a higher score and will be more likely to obtain funding. Within these sustainable development is assessed in its broadest sense which covers economic growth, social cohesion and the protection of the environment. This way most of the projects involve sustainable development measures.Through this project we aim to improve PA 13 of ROP 2014-2020 by creating a better understanding of these horizontal priorities and through higher focus on resources efficiency and local resources use and circular economy concepts at the project elaboration and implementation.

Project summary ClusteriX 2.0 is a project financed under the Interreg Europe programme that addresses the improvement of regional innovation policies by making better use of clusters. Over decades clusters have proven to be efficient policy instruments enabling cooperation between industry, research and policy, but ClusteriX 2.0 looks forward into new ways of facilitating intra and inter regional cooperation. This shall be done by focusing on the identification and structured use of complementary industrial and research competences and by introducing new models of innovation through the implementation of strategic cluster partnerships. New models of innovation are needed because globalization and digitalization cause rapidly changing value chains and business models. The policy makers need to be aware of such developments to keep the pace and be able to provide fast and flexible support for emerging industries in order to make/keep a region competitive at global scale.     €2,133,027.00 from 1 Apr 2016 to 31 Mar 2021 Topic Research and innovation Innovation for Clusters The goal of the consortium is to increase the number of collaborations between enterprises and knowledge institutions towards new industrial value chains through cross-cluster cooperation and eventually to new products and solutions. For this, it is necessary to improve the policy instruments related to networking, clusters and open innovation through the smart specialization approach. The way towards reaching this objective demands to increase the number, the quality and intensity of interaction of cross-sector cluster partnerships: both within each partner region as well as between the regions based on complementary competences identified through smart regional profiling.   The project approach is to set-up and implement the right framework for exchanging own experiences and learning between the partners: dedicated activities like workshops, events, peer-reviews, study trips, staff exchanges shall enable the participating organisations to learn, adapt the good practices to the realities of their regions and implement on this bases new measures and actions leading to a better policy making.   We see ClusteriX 2.0 as a small community of cluster-related actors dedicated to exchange, learn and improve, intra but also inter community. Looking into Open Innovation processes, our attitude is just as open for the broader European cluster community, willing to share with it our joint experiences and policy learning results.     Contact: Simone HagenauerProject Manager ClustersTel: +43 2742 9000-19657   Irene Woller Project Assistant International Projects Tel: +43 2742 9000-19659 Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? ERDF Programme Investment in Growth and Jobs Austria 2014-2020, Operational Programme for ERDF, Priority axis A.1, Investment priority 1.b, measure M6_FTI_IP1b_MN4: Clusters / Networks, Location Management The OP measure supports new and existing networks in order to decrease competitive disadvantages of SMEs, close gaps in the innovation system, organize collaboration along the value chain and speed up diffusion of new technologies and collaborative competence development. At regional level it is implemented by Intermediary Bodies (IB) based on their RIS3 strategies in coherence with the national RTI strategy - in Lower Austria through the region’s Cluster Program. The Cluster Program Lower Austria 2015-2020 provides support for cluster management. The implementing body of the program is the Lower Austrian Business Agency ecoplus, a regional development agency owned by the regional government of Lower Austria. Based on comprehensive cluster potential analyses carried out by external experts and the decision of the regional government to support a cluster initiative, ecoplus manages the Lower Austrian cluster initiatives as an “umbrella” cluster organisation, currently in the areas of green building, food, plastics, mechatronics and e-mobility. Despite efforts to improve cross-cluster collaboration in the past years the program needs to be approved in order to be able to provide fast and flexible support for emerging industries and development of NEW value chains. Which partners are working on this? ecoplus. The Business Agency of Lower Austria Regional Operational Programme Investment in Growth and Jobs ERDF 2014-2020, Priority axis 1 (RDI), Priority 1B, Measure 1.1.4 “Support to R&S cooperation actions for the development of new technologies, products and services” The objective of this policy instrument is to improve the cooperation between companies and R&D institutions. It intends to improve the cooperation attitude of the South Tyrolean businesses ecosystem which is for over 90% based on small and medium sized enterprises. It supports networking and collaboration of companies or between companies and research organizations especially in the domains of the region’s Innovation and Smart Specialization Strategy which requires better coordination among actors and new calls for proposals. The role of the innovation intermediaries (e.g. clusters) is to trigger these kinds of projects and connect the right partners. Which partners are working on this? NOI Techpark (until 31.12.2018 IDM Südtirol - Alto Adige) Economic Development and Innovation Operational Program (EDIOP) 1.3.2.: Enhancing professional cluster management organizations’ capabilities and skills The policy instrument is part of priority 1 (Enhancing the competitiveness of SME sector) of the EDIOP under the Investment priority 3 d “supporting the capacity of SMEs to grow in regional, national and international markets, and to engage in innovation processes”. The first call opens in 2015 Q3, and will be continuously open till 2020. Call conditions are to be continuously monitored and developed further. Beneficiaries: cluster management organisations Goal: Improving the quality and level of services provided by the cluster management organisation In the Hungarian SF framework cluster development falls into priority 3 without distinction of the innovation and SME development aspects. This measure however aims at improving the global competitiveness of the clusters through more enhanced services, enabling them to act as key innovation drivers. The instrument shall be improved by aligning it better with the actual demands of clusters and building a more coherent, responsive ecosystem of support and implementation. This however requires a more nuanced, cooperative approach from both the clusters and the decision makers. Specific goals of the improvement can be tackling the support of internationalisation and issue-driven, cross-sector innovation through clusters within the current framework. This is anticipated to turn the policy instrument into a powerful pilot for larger-scale actions, and set cluster organisations on a path to being more competitive. Which partners are working on this? West-Pannon Regional and Economic Development Public Nonprofit Ltd. Competitiveness Operational Programme 2014-2020 (COP), Priority Axis 1: Technological Development and Innovation (RDI) to support economic competitiveness and business development, Investment Priority PI1a "Improving research and innovation infrastructures and capacities to develop excellence in RDI and promoting of competence centers particularly those of European interest", Action 1.1.1 Large RDI infrastructures, Project Type "Innovation clusters" The general objective of the COP 2014-2020 is to strengthen the research, technological and innovation development and increasing the use, quality and access to information and communication technology. Priority Axis 1- Research, technological development and innovation (RDI) supports economic competitiveness and business development. The action 1.1.1 envisages the valorization of cluster development potential by fostering their cooperation with the RDI institutions in view of technology transfer towards industrial partners. - Currently only smart specialization priorities at national level are taken into consideration (bio economy; ICT, space and security; energy, environment and climate change; eco-nano technology and advanced materials; health which leads to the de facto exclusion of clusters relevant at regional level: hence, identified regional smart specialization priorities should be included in correlation with the national ones. - The current financing scheme, i.e. the applied state aid scheme foresees a high level of own co-financing which represents a major barrier to clusters accessing the funds: hence a more flexible approach with a smart combination of financing schemes should be implemented - The current action is mainly focused on infrastructure endowment, which hardly fits to the needs of Romanian clusters in their current development status: hence, an adaptation of the spectrum of actions (research, management, innovation, internationalisation) is needed.

(cancelled) The « smart accelerator » program supports the (further) development of RIS3 teams involving regional governments and related agencies. These RIS3 teams have the task to ensure the right conditions for the fulfilment of the RIS3 objectives. The set of activities foreseen in the program cover: preparation of RIS3 action plans, organisation of Regional Innovation Council and innovation platforms meetings, mapping activities, education, promotion, twinning, pilot testing of new innovation tools and support for preparation of strategic RIS3 projects with key impact on regional innovation ecosystem. The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport of the Czech Republic acts as the coordinating body of all “smart accelerator” programs to implement the RIS3 strategies in Czech regions. As it is a new tool and contains many new activities for improving the innovation performance of our region, we want to learn from experiences in mapping /evaluation and support of R&D activities in relation to regional innovation strategies of our partners in order to further develop our cluster policy and the whole regional innovation ecosystem towards an integrated competitive region based on clusters.

Priority axis A.1, Strengthened innovation in SME. The aim of the programme’s investment priority 1.b “Increased Innovation in SME by strong cluster organisations” is to increase the innovation capacity of SMEs in specific fields of strength: i.e. defined in the regional innovation and smart specialisation strategy, the regional growth and development strategy or areas with potential to future growth. A maximum of two clusters per region can be recommended for support. The OP is a national programme and implemented by regional intermediate bodies,such as the Growth Forum of Southern Denmark within the Region of Southern Denmark. It is interacting with the regional business development strategies and action plans of which the regional cluster policies are vital parts. 8 ministries, 6 regions and Local Government Denmark have set up a joint strategy “Strategy for Denmark’s Cluster Policy” aiming for an efficient cluster policy to contribute to creating tomorrow’s strong competitive and innovative enterprises. The cluster policy strategy has 3 specific focus areas: More international clusters, more professional cluster organisations and a Forum for the Danish cluster and network policy. As a result of the strategy a new cluster support function called Cluster Excellence Denmark has been established. The Region of Southern Denmark joins the ClusteriX 2.0 consortium in order to foster specialization in each cluster according to its ecosystem and regional priorities as well as internationalisation of clusters.

Regional Council of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Flanders Cluster Support Program The objective of the instrument is to generate economic added value and increase competitiveness of Flemish enterprises by improved collaboration between enterprises, knowledge institutes and government (triple helix). The cluster program will provide funding for cluster organizations based on a long term competitiveness program. The cluster organization can thus organize activities for the member companies to generate collaborative activities and projects – from R&D to demonstration and pilot projects, from idea generation to road-mapping and development of the cluster strategy. The objective is to support 5 large and 10 smaller clusters with a time horizon of resp. maximum 10 and 3 years. After 3 years an evaluation will take place for the large clusters. In case of a positive evaluation their funding will be extended again for 3 years, still within the limits of a max 10y funding period. The funding of the smaller clusters will end anyway after 3 years. The Flanders Cluster Support Program is funded by regional sources (50% public, 50% private).MORE INFORMATION Which partners are working on this?

Thermauvergne association Economic Development and Innovation Operational Programme The main priorities to mention according to the support of the topic of the Economic Development and Innovation Operational Programme (GINOP) of Hungary is Axis 2. Research, technological development and innovation - NEC4.1. Improvement of R+I activity product, technology and service developement innovation ecosystem. The region needs a better process for integrated policy development in which health prevention and thermalism are taken into account. Only then societal challenges like healthy ageing can be tackled better and new innovative business development can be supported together with the project of the University of Debrecen and its public/private partners, which is the creation of Thermal based health industry economic zone totally in line with the priority of the National Smart Specialization Strategy titled "Healthy society and wellbeing" and the Europe2020 for a healthier EU programme. Special economic zones – connecting to the RIS3 – are not directly among the priorities now, that is why a development is required. Which partners are working on this? University of Debrecen Operational Programme “Growth and Employment" The Latvian Operational Programme ''Growth and Employment'' (OP) aims at achieving key national development priorities along with the "Europe 2020" objectives. By combining support from the ERDF, the CF, the ESF and the specific allocation for the YEI, the OP will provide a significant support to the economic growth and employment, with a particular focus on the competitiveness of Latvia's economy. The priority Axis 1 supports RTD and innovation in Latvia. In particular, the OP contribution is expected to increase Latvia's innovation potential by having the share of innovative SMEs increased to 40%. Latvian OP (2014-2020) underlines the importance of spa and preventative health care development, which is also underlined by the Latvian National Development Plan (2014-2020) and reflected in several strategic documents, such as Development strategy of medical tourism in Latvia. The ERDF support should help to ensure valuable use of the preventative health and thermal offer by implementing in the national level of Latvia the measures for the promotion of Latvia as an international and local health prevention and health destination. There is a potential for the development of thermal resorts and new health offers in Latvia. Which partners are working on this? University of Latvia Regional Operational Programme of Warmia and Mazury for 2014-2020 The analysis of the Regional Operational Programme of Warmia and Mazury 2014-2020 supports research and innovation activities, particularly, the Priority 1 linked to the Thematic objective 1 ‘Strengthening research, technological development and innovation’ . The measures that should be improved are related to spa infrastructure, packaging of products and services and active and healthy ageing. Warmia and Mazury Regional Development Agency (WMRDA) would like to pay more attention to preventative health and thermalism in the Regional Operational Programme of Warmia and Mazury 2014-2020. Warmia and Mazury is called “polish green lungs” and „land of 1000 lakes”, has places with unique microclimate and mud decks. In recent years, many spa centers have been established to offer rehabilitation, slimming and health care courses at the highest level. The unique microclimate, the cleanest air in Poland in Gołdap Sanatorium, as well as the infrastructure give the region the opportunity to develop in this direction. Which partners are working on this? Warmia and Mazury Regional Development Agency JSC in Olsztyn Regional Operational Programme 2014 – 2020 The Regional Operational Program (ROP) 2014 – 2020 is an Investment for Growth and Jobs Program in Romania, financed by the European Commission from the European Structural and Investment Funds, respectively the European Regional Development Fund. ROP 2014-2020 aims at promoting smart sustainable and inclusive growth in all regions in Romania making them more attractive places in which to live and work. The programme addresses the major development challenges for Romania: regional competitiveness, sustainable urban development, the low-carbon economy, and economic and social infrastructure at regional and local level.  Within this project, the Regional Development Agency Centru (RDA Centru) will address ROP 2014-2020, Priority Axis 1 (PA1) – “Promoting technology transfer”. PA 1 corresponds to the thematic objective 01 – “Strengthening research, technological development and innovation”. RDA Centru would like to set-up the suitable environment for the local SMEs active in the health and thermalism sectors to develop through innovation. The major focus is therefore to address bottlenecks to innovation and increase investment in business research and development through close collaboration between public and private actors in the field of health, preventative health and thermalism sectors.
