Project summary How can we stimulate European businesses, knowledge institutes, and relevant partners to join forces to discover new ideas which could lead to innovation? That is the central question in Beyond EDP, a European Interreg project formed by eleven partners from nine countries.  Stimulating crossovers The entrepreneurial discovery process(EDP) is a process of continual interaction between businesses, knowledge institutes and, preferably, users, which aids the developments of new ideas and discoveries ("entrepreneurial discoveries"); discoveries which, if focused and supported in mutual cohesion, can grow to become a coherent palette of innovations, eventually becoming new economic strengths.  The Beyond EDP project aims to strengthen the entrepreneurial discovery process in Europe, boosting the Regional Innovation smart specialisation strategy (RIS3, in short) adopted by Europe in 2014. Knowledge institutes and businesses need each other for innovation and to turn that innovation into saleable products and practical applications. SMEs can fulfil an important role here. Among SMEs are leaders, developers, early adopters, and followers. Most companies can be classed as followers, meaning that innovation is far from a priority for many entrepreneurs. How do we stimulate innovation among these SMEs? Many European regions are faced with this problem; the Beyond EDP project was launched in 2014 for that reason. The participants share their knowledge and experience in various ways, including peer to peer reviews, joining forces to discover the success factors for stimulating innovation. They also want to know what they, as public authorities and management organisations, can do to facilitate that for companies and knowledge institutes, using tools such as financial stimulation. The aim is to create interesting crossovers on the intersections between sectors. Creating space for spontaneous ideas Various innovation environments have been created in the European regions in recent years, often supported by the ERDF Operational Programme: hubs and campuses where businesses and knowledge institutes can work on "entrepreneurial discovery" together. Sometimes together at physical locations, but often also through virtual collaboration.   This already forms a part of the RIS3: the intention to create structures throughout Europe where cohesive innovation projects can constantly be developed. The idea is that bringing entrepreneurs, knowledge institutes, and users together will form a creative space where new ideas and discoveries can thrive. The themes and schools of thought must not be decided in advance. It is intended to allow ideas to spontaneously emerge from the dynamism that develops between the parties. Focused and cohesive support can help those ideas grow into promising new economic initiatives. Europe still has a lot of room for improvement   Europe still has a long way to go in this area. The number of innovation projects needs to increase, the cohesion between innovation environments could be better, and many more business from many different sectors could join these types of initiatives.   The Beyond EDP participants want to stimulate enthusiasm for innovation in their own region, bolstering the development of new creative environments everywhere, where businesses and institutes can continually raise ideas and find out which ones have the most potential. Those ideas can then receive focused support and be further developed into concrete initiatives. These are often niches: new ideas formed by clustering and contact between companies which may never have collaborated before because they are working on completely different things. Beyond EDP: a key project for Europe The Beyond EDP project addresses the core of the European innovation strategy, making it a key project for achieving the goal that Europe wishes to achieve by 2020: an economy based on smart, sustainable, and inclusive growth(growth in which everyone has a fair share, and which therefore does not come at the cost of minority groups and stragglers). The Beyond EDP project stimulates relationships and cross-connections between regions, as well as between businesses, knowledge institutes, and other stakeholders.   The trick is to make innovation everyone's business. Not only for large companies, but also for smaller SME companies, whether they are focused on high tech or on craftsmanship. Not only in the cities, but also in the countryside. Entrepreneurial discovery comes to life in creative environments. The more parties that meet each other, the broader the creativity and the greater the chance of creating something new which, in turn, leads to other new ideas. Innovation, by definition, requires teamwork. €1,735,398.00 from 1 Apr 2016 to 31 Mar 2021 Topic Research and innovation Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Centre-Val de Loire RIS3 Given its regional industrial strengths (the industry plays a leading role in the regional economy with more than 17% of GDP and jobs) and in order to face economic and technological challenges, the Centre-Val de Loire (CVL) region has made industry renewal one of its top priority. To achieve this objective, CVL continuously seek to boost regional innovation capacity. In this context, the CVL has since 2009 been working on better understanding the concept of Smart specialisation Strategy. CVL RIS3 has been officially approved by the Regional Council on 19th of December 2013. CVL RIS3 aims to :To encourage all types of innovation by strengthening regional research and innovation capacities;To make the ecological transition an asset for the industrial fabric;To strengthen the region's attractiveness by building on the industry (such as pharmacy, chemistry, cosmetics, mechanical equipment, electrical, electronic and computer equipment) and on tourism sectors having an international dimension To enhance the creative capacities of companies through the human capitalTo increase the number of innovative companies from 1000 to 1500 by 2020.More specifically, the RIS3 objective is to increase the critical mass, visibility and attractiveness of competence centres in the 5 priorities retained in the RIS3. The policy is directly linked with the CVL ERDF OP: Axis 1 Knowledge Society (TO1 directly linked with RIS3, investment priorities 1a and 1b). Which partners are working on this? DEV'UP Centre-Val de Loire "until 31/12/2016 Centre-Val de Loire Regional Innovation Agency" RIS3 of Castilla y León 2014-2020 The Castilla y León 2014 2020 RIS3 is the regional 2014-2020 R&D and Information Society’s planning document. It is the continuation of a path that Castilla y León started in 1997, which was the precursor of many elements reflected in the previous table and today form part of the European Union’s approach. The elaboration of the Castilla y León RIS3 has followed the six step methodology published by the European Commission’s Smart Specialisation Platform. Smart specialisation of Castilla y León is the top level of the regional policies, RIS3 is articulated around 5 Priorities and 6 Objectives. TCUE is a particular measure of the RIS3, close to the EDP, as TCUE is at the centre of the regional quadruple helix (government, business, academy and society). TCUE therefore has a significant potential to improve EDP during the implementation of the RIS3. TCUE is articulated as a network of all the regional universities fostering knowledge transfer to regional companies, and entrepreneurship. ERDF OP : Axis 1 “Fostering R&D&I” and Axis 2 “Improving access to ICT” (Digital Agenda) are directly linked to RIS3. The selected measure TCUE is related to ERDF as it is included in the Priority Axis 1.2 of the ERDF Operational Programme of Castilla y León: “Fostering innovation and the development of links between companies and research centres”. Which partners are working on this? Universities and Higher Education Foundation of Castilla y León Centru RIS3 RIS3 is the output of intensified intraregional cooperation between the research sector, the business and the Public Authorities (triple helix model). This strategy is also in line with the national policies on innovation and increasing competitiveness. Coördination of the RIS3 design in our region was performed by the Centru Regional Development Agency.Functional partnership and working groups were set up:Regional Committee for Planning and Thematic working groups. Decisionmaking mechanism for RIS3:RDA Centru is in charge with drafting the RIS3The RIS3 priorities are settled by RDA Centru together with Regional Committee for Planning based on the draft prepared by RDA CentruFinally, the Regional Board of Centru Region has endorsed the RIS3 Setting up our RIS3 priorities We defined 3 horizontal directions (I, II, V) and 2 specific directions (III, IV) for reaching our goals:Building an economic culture of innovation (I)Regional research as support for regional businesses (II)Areas of excellence for a regional smart development (III)Better professional skills for a knowledgebased economy (IV)Interregional Cooperation at European level (V)The Centru RIS3 is related to the following national programmes: the Regional Operational Programme ERDF 20142020, the Operational Programme for the Competiveness 20142020, the Human Capital Operational Programme 20142020.(IV) Which partners are working on this? Regional Development Agency Centru (RDA Centru) Extremadura RIS3 Extremadura RIS3 Strategy is an integrated agenda for the economic transformation of the region. Its global objective is increasing the size, added value and global competitiveness of the socioeconomic fabric of Extremadura through policies that enable the use and development of technologies related to the region’s sources of differentiation, fundamentally based on the sustainable exploitation of natural and cultural resources and the capabilities for creating quality of life in its demographic context, in connection with the challenges of Europe 2020 and global opportunitygeneration tendencies. In particular, Extremadura RIS3 Programme C2.3 «Facilitation of Entrepreneurial Discovery Processes» aims at strengthening the links of the value chains affecting the smart specialisation and at facilitating the development of Entrepreneurial Discovery Processes to help the identification of emerging opportunities and niche sectors related to Extremadura specialisation. The success of this policy instrument demands a global approach to Research, Development and Innovation support policies so as to arrange a multi actor governance, foster the regional specialisation potential through a welldesigned combination of different instruments and asses the results achieved. RIS3 is directly linked to Extremadura ERDF OP Axis 1 "Strengthening Research, Technological Development and Innovation". Moreover, the promotion of the EDP is specifically linked to the Priority 1.2.   Which partners are working on this? Foundation FUNDECYT Scientific and Technological Park of Extremadura (FUNDECYT-PCTEX) Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodzkie Region - „LORIS 2030” The Lodzkie Region, in accordance with the RIS 2012 is seen as a weak innovator at the secondary level of progressive growth rate of innovation. The challenge for the region, enshrined in the Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodzkie Region (LORIS 2030) is to change this situation and try to eliminate the gap between the Lodzkie and some of the Western European regions by 2030. LORIS 2030 includes measures that support the development of entrepreneurship, strengthen the cooperation of enterprises, research and development entities, institutions of business environment and administration and promote the broadly defined innovation in all areas of economic activity. The 2nd key element is the system of management, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. The main object is: Outlining a vision for specific strategic industries of the region, the directions of their development, the development scenarios as well as defining the conditions of the effective implementation of the designated activities. The Specific objectives are: mapping of relationships between the groups of key technologies and the key industries; mapping of regional specialisations, including a description and conditions of creating possible networks of sciencebusiness relationships, developing the project proposals facilitating the connection and integration of the key groups of technologies with the key industries. The RIS3 is directly linked with the Lodzkie Region ROP 20142020 (Measure 1.2). Which partners are working on this? Lodzkie Region Nord-Pas de Calais RIS3 RIS3 aim at transforming regional economies, betting on regional strengths and specialisations. The RIS3 provide a framework to identify the development axis and the specialisations of the regional economy. In Nord-Pas de Calais, the RIS3 has been designed thanks to an entrepreneurial discovery process. Nord-Pas de Calais identified 6 strategic domains to work on: Transport and mobility, Nutrition and Health, Ambient Intelligence and Internet of Things, Materials, Chemistry, Recycling, Numeric picturing and Creative industries, Energy. Moreover, a list of 7 smart specialisations was established, including for example natural ingredients for health, organic textiles, polymers and composites, or design and applications of bio-based products. With the RIS3, the smart specialisations are to become the new engines of the regional economy. The first challenge is to gather forces from all the regional ecosystem on the long term and to involve all the relevant stakeholders (companies, local authorities, research centres, etc.). A second challenge is to update the RIS3 with new hypothesis of specialisation that could emerge through the EDP. Therefore the improvement of the EDP in terms of methodology, tools and know-how is a key element of the RIS3 success. RIS3 is directly linked with Nord-Pas de Calais ERDF OP : Axe 1 :TO1, SO 1.a.2 ; SO 1.b.1 TO 3, SO 3.d Which partners are working on this? North France Innovation & Development ‘until 31/03/2017’ Northern Netherlands RIS3 The Northern Netherlands (N-NLs) RIS3 aims at broadening and connecting value chains, by creating ‘cross overs’ between sectors and technologies. It supports businesses and knowledge institutes to invest in new chains, products and markets Pivotal in this process are SME’s. SMEs comprise more than 95% of all companies in the N-NLs. Analysis has shown that these SME’s appear to be insufficiently capable of exploiting existing knowledge and/or generating new knowledge. The RIS3 addresses this issue by:fostering collaboration, between businesses and between businesses and knowledge institutes improving the access to knowledge, andimproving the effectiveness and accessibility of support measures.The knowledge available within the region is insufficient to come to solutions, so cross-border collaboration plays a key role in this respect. New partnerships are envisaged to be developed, and existing partnerships are encouraged to be extended. The policy instrument aims to strengthen the knowledge base of SME’s to ensure that they are better equipped to exploit existing knowledge and generate new knowledge. It will expand the innovation system and enable more SME’s to incorporate innovation within their operation. RIS3 is directly related to the N-NLs Operational Programme ERDF through IP 1.b, SO B. Which partners are working on this? Northern Netherlands Alliance The Smart Specialisation Strategy of Östergötland (RIS3) The RIS3 of Östergötland was established by East Sweden Business Region (ESBR). Included in ESBR are the organisations in Östergötland that are partly or wholly tax funded and which work to support efforts to achieve growth. The RIS3 of Östergötland is unique, the strategy focuses on regional strengths from which all industries/branches can benefit. The five regional strengths of Östergötland are effective logistics, business models and arenas for sustainable system solutions, smart, secure and connected products and systems, simulation and visualisation and advanced materials. The next step is the improvement of the RIS3 process of Östergötland, the aim with the participation in the EDP project is to find an intelligent way of working to use our strengths so that they can add value in the form of innovations and strong competiveness in all industries and all sectors. Region Östergötland is currently trying out a new model for implementation, based on two parts; benefit of applying the strength areas and concrete tools for implementation. In order to improve the strategy, Östergötland needs to share experiences with all regions at different levels regarding RIS3, how can we learn from each other. In order to improve the RIS3, Östergötland requires knowledge regarding the entrepreneurial discovery process, regarding the implementation process of the RIS3 strategy and are also interested to within the project develop a common methodology/language towards businesses/companies. Which partners are working on this? Region Östergötland Saxony-Anhalt RIS3 The regional innovation strategy of Saxony-Anhalt (Saxony-Anhalt RIS3) fulfils the requirement as ex-ante conditionality of ERDF Funding. Moreover, it also addresses - beside the traditional definition of innovation and funding scheme of ERDF (strengthening research, technological development and innovation as well as competiveness of SME’s) – social innovation and societal challenges like demographic change, skills in demand etc. which correlates with ESF priorities (e.g. life-long learning). So, the Saxony-Anhalt RIS3 is the attempt – as development of the former cluster and innovation strategy - of an overarching strategy for various regional concepts in order to become innovation leader according to the Regional Innovation Scoreboard in 2020. The programming of ERDF and ESF – in particular ERDF priority axis 1, objective 1 and priority axis 2, objective 3 as well as ESF priority axis 1, objective 8 and priority axis 3, objective 10 – was oriented with focus of these innovation-friendly lead markets. The focus will laid on these measures financed by ERDF and ESF Operational Programme in order to share best practice with other regions with different experience and expertise. We expect that the project will help us to structure the EDP and find sustainable governance structures which enhance tailor-made public policies for the needs of regional business and academia in order to promote cooperation in the Quadruple Helix and foster growth and jobs. Which partners are working on this? Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg Research and Innovation Strategy for Smart Specialisation of Umbria Region (RIS3) The objective of Umbria Region Strategy of Research and Innovation for Smart Specialisation is: “ To activate local potential by leveraging regional assets, talents , through access to the results of research and the promotion of new entrepreneurship. " Within this general objective the strategy identifies the expected changes, such as changes and transformations intended to be carried out to build a sustainable competitive advantage for the region and for the regional production system. The priority areas of Umbria RIS3 coincide with areas of technological specialisation of the Region and they are:Energy, Smart Manufacturing/aerospace industry; Sciences of LifeAgrifood, Green chemistry.Umbria Region Strategy of Research and Innovation for Smart Specialisation (RIS3) is considered as unified and comprehensive innovation strategy to support a socio-economic change in the region. Therefore it is consider as a fundamental component of economic and development public policies. The strategy includes measures that will be activated through regional programs financed by the Structural Funds, in particular the Umbria ROP ERDF will activate RIS3 actions under the Priority Axe 1 " Research and Innovation ". Total funds of Umbria ROP ERDF: 342M€, of which 101M€ allocated to Axis 1”research and innovation” Which partners are working on this? Umbria Region Bourgogne RIS3 Franche-Comte RIS3 Several challenges were highlighted in Burgundy and in Franche-Comte for the RIS 3: strengthening the research excellence, developing partnerships for innovation, strengthening the transfer activities of public research and its impact on the economic, expanding the circle of innovative companies, developing human and technological skills for innovation... Burgundy identified 5 strategic domains to work on: nutrition and health, materials, biomedical, eco-construction and mobility. Franche-Comte identified 7 strategic domains to work on: mobility, energy, ICT, sustainable traditional food, microsystems, Microtechnique and luxury products. The first challenge concerns the governance. This aspect must be tackled not only in its strategic dimension, but also at an operational level. The success demands a global approach and to organize a multi actor governance. Therefore, the recent fusion of the regions (but not of the ERDF POs) and the elaboration of a new Regional scheme of economic development, innovation and internationalization (SRDEII) and a Regional scheme of higher education, research and innovation are changing the existing landscape. RIS3 is directly link with Burgundy and Franche-Comté ERDF: (Axis 1 “strengthening Research, Technological Development and Innovation”). Which partners are working on this?

Project summary          ... successful innovation policy combines the need to set directions from above with the ability to enable bottom up experimentation and learning.                                                                            Mariana Mazzucato, Mission-Oriented Innovation Policy SMEs greatly benefit from ecosystems that enable cross-sectoral collaboration, learning, creation and experimentation. Access to smart and integrated (inter)regional policy instruments throughout the entire process of innovation, a vibrant (value chain) ecosystem and relevant competencies will pave the way towards demand-driven and thus efficient, effective and sustainable solutions. The overall objective of ACSELL is to sensitize the public sector, innovation intermediaries (e.g., chambers of commerce, technology transfer offices, etc.) and SMEs towards                     • expanding SME competencies by promoting open innovation ecosystems; and                     • integrating the user early in the innovation process with (interregional) living lab                                approach. Moreover, ACSELL will facilitate complex policy orchestration and promote network thinking and openness through 1) concerted twinning activities in the form of study visits based on comprehensive self-assessments; 2) knowledge transfer and mutual learning between regions coping with the same challenges by identifying transferable good practices and hacking regional policy challenges; and 3) accelerating innovative capacities in the participating regions through improved (innovation) policy instruments. What is the optimal framework for nudging that paradigm shift towards open and demand-driven innovation? How can mutually reinforcing value propositions be attained in a multi-dimensional ecosystem? These questions will guide activities that will feed into the action plans for each region.  €1,752,349.00 from 1 Aug 2019 to 31 Jul 2023 Topic SME competitiveness Open and Demand-Driven Innovation Mega trends like ageing populations and digitalisation are transforming different areas of our lives, our work and our economies, ranging from new needs, new products and services to new organizational forms and business models.  Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are also affected by these changes and consequently need to acquire new skills and cross-industry knowledge in order to remain competitive. So-called open innovation ecosystems and user-centered approaches (e.g., living labs) can make an important contribution by using external know-how cooperatively in order to align new products and services with the needs of customers and thus significantly accelerating innovation processes.  Especially SMEs are affected by poorly designed regulatory frameworks and lack the resources or capacities to deal with these dynamic and increasingly complex market conditions. The ACSELL project thus focusses on creating favorable (innovation) policies and framework conditions for SMEs.  What are Living Labs? Living Labs (LLs) are defined as user-centred, open innovation ecosystems based on systematic user co-creation approach, integrating research and innovation processes in real life communities and settings. LLs are both practice-driven organisations that facilitate and foster open, collaborative innovation, as well as real-life environments or arenas where both open innovation and user innovation processes can be studied and subject to experiments and where new solutions are developed. LLs operate as intermediaries among citizens, research organisations, companied, cities and regions for joint value co-creation, rapid prototyping or validation to scale up innovation and businesses. LLs have common elements but multiple different implementations.                                                                           Definition by European Network of Living Labs (ENOLL) Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? OP Baden-Württemberg ERDF 2014-2020 Priority 1: Research, technological development and innovation. Baden-Württemberg’s Budget for 2014-2020 from ERDF is € 246.585.038,-   Aim: to strengthen potential for research and innovation   Impact: expand cluster development and regional innovation infrastructures to more SMEs (also in rural areas), support to and increase of innovative SMEs (including the RIS3 clusters), more new products and services, faster innovation processes and better time-to-market   Enhancing the SME competitiveness and cluster development are both integral parts of the Baden-Württemberg innovation policy. But the dovetailing between research (universities) and application (SMEs) as well as between technology and services is often missing – and so is the match of supply and demand (needs), especially with regards to SMEs. Thus the State Government of Baden-Württemberg is using OP to foster programmes, that support exchange, knowledge-transfer and collaboration in (open) innovation processes throughout multi-stakeholder-networks (universities, cluster agencies, chambers, Transfercenters, SMEs, users), also in rural areas, in a more effective way. This policy instrument however could be improved by integrating the demand side into the innovation process much earlier – i.e. by using instruments like Living Labs, Design-thinking workshops and hackathons. This offers a great opportunity for tackling the specific targets 1, 2 and 3 of the Operational Programme (ERDF, Priority A 01 1b) and to strengthen the cluster development in Baden-Württemberg significantly. Which partners are working on this? University of Tübingen 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 provides 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 roadmapping and development of the cluster strategy. Furthermore the cluster program provides funding for collaborative cluster projects through specific calls tailored to foster collaboration between the enterprises in these clusters.   The Flanders Cluster Support Program is also indirectly linked to the Flemish ERDF Operation Program 20142020. The collaborative activities and projects can potentially be supported from 2 specific objectives (SO): SO 1.1 “Promote cocreation for improved valorisation of R&D results” (27.8 MEUR ERDF available) and SO 1.2 “Support the transfer/dissemination of technologies in view of knowledge valorization and commercialization” (41.7 MEUR ERDF available). Which partners are working on this? Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship Regional Operational Programme Priority Axis 2 - Improving the Competitiveness of Small and Medium Enterprises The SMEs sector is insufficiently developed, with negative impact on competitiveness of regional economies. In order to ensure competitiveness and create jobs, supporting the business environment in terms of increasing the size and activity of companies becomes a priority.   The West Regional Operational Programme for 2014-2020 allocates € 80,43 MM for activities developed under Priority Axis 2 aiming at improving the capacities of SMEs.   The intended improvements for this policy instrument envisage the promoting of entrepreneurship, especially by facilitating the economic exploitation of new ideas and by encouraging the creation of new businesses, inclusively through the support of business incubators. Other proposed measures include the expansion of cluster development to a wider range of SMEs (also in rural areas), the support for increasing the number of innovative SMEs, products and services, as well as decreasing the duration of innovation processes and ensuring better time-to-market. Which partners are working on this? Timiş County Council Regional Strategy for Healthcare Research and Innovation For the ERDF-OP TO1: Research & Innovation, the North Denmark Regions’ action plan 2014-2018 has the following focus:   Strengthening the organisation in clusters. • The development and running of cluster organisations in relevant business areas as an efficient tool for growth and development. The activities must focus on collaboration, innovation and the creation of business in companies. • Innovation activities. Supports projects that can develop new concepts for products or test concepts at the relevant target groups.   This has been implemented in the shape of Public-private innovation (PPI) collaboration through clusters. It is a goal to be able to build one cluster organisation in the North Denmark Region in the fields of health- and welfare technology that includes all regional actors with an interest in these fields. This will build mainly on relevant PPI collaborations. One function of the cluster is to initiate and develop different arenas for innovation. In the healthcare sector, the interaction with hospital staff and patients is essential. However, the potentials for developing new solutions, support entrepreneurs and innovation in SMEs have not been fully exploited.   Improvements to the current policy should focus on the remaining barriers. These include a drop in the number of successful PPIs (Evaluation by KORA 2014) and that it is notoriously hard for SMEs to go from development to sale in the health- or welfare tech market.

SO1 refers to promoting and accelerating the creation of new firms, especially start-ups, whereas SO2 addresses increased added value of SMEs. According to the OP, it is “crucial to improve access to capital and funding, training, mentoring, networking and other support services” for the SMEs as it will “contribute to improving the skills and competences at the level of companies and at the level of inter-company cooperation”. Support under SO2 will be, among others, given to: growth and development of SMEs by links to creative industry, introducing tech and non-tech innovativeness. Objective of the IP2 is to enhance the international competitiveness of SMEs.   Improvements of the policy should outline new opportunities related to accessibility of funding for SMEs, recommend additional incentives for enhancing internationalization by integration into global value chains and address new mechanisms designed specifically for so called scale-up companies. Etrepreneurial support system should support SMEs to address demand driven innovation. Which partners are working on this? Technology Park Ljubljana Ltd.

Project summary SUPPORT tackles the difficulties encountered by many cities and towns of partner regions in the implementation of sustainable energy policies.  Lack of funding, obstacles in making financial strategies, scarce integration of energy policies, poor involvement of private sector: these are why, nevertheless EU support for local authorities, since the adoption of the Climate and Energy Package in the framework of the Covenant of Mayors, local plans in Energy Efficiency didn’t produce effective results, particularly in the administrations’ ownbuilding stock.  SUPPORT aims to improve the coordination and performance of policy instruments to implement national and regional energy efficiency programmes at local level, through:the reduction of the implementation gap and a more effective use of available funding opportunities (including Structural Funds) reinforcing the coordination and support role of regions  focusing on the development of more cost-effective and wide-range actionsTo achieve these aims, SUPPORT combines different kinds of interregional learning activities, to foster exchange among partners and between partners and stakeholdersPartners will work both separately and jointly (and with the collaboration of key regional stakeholders and the technical support of the advisory partner) to analyze their regional backgrounds in the field of energy policies, identify and transfer good practices, and define Action Plans to improve the performance of their energy policy instruments and the spending of Structural Funds in their regions, also through a more effective implementation of local plans.  €1,842,644.00 from 1 Jan 2017 to 30 Jun 2021 Topic Low-carbon economy What will SUPPORT change? The overall objective of SUPPORT is improving the operational quality of the ERDF funds directed towards local administrations for integrated strategies for CO2 abatement, with particular attention to the reduction of the implementation gap of energy efficiency measures, and empowering Local Authorities to make optimal use of ERDF funds for integrated sustainable energy strategies and actions, e.g. in the context of voluntary commitments, like the Covenant of Mayors, involving local stakeholders and private subjects in the implementation of energy-related actions and projects.  Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? OP Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014 2020, 04 "Supporting the shift towards a low carbon economy in all sectors", Investment priority 4c "Supporting energy efficiency, smart energy management and renewable energy use public infrastructure, including in public buildings, and in the housing sector"  The policy instrument is the most important tool to promote energy efficiency in the public sector in Croatia. Targeted SO contributes to the achievement of the obligation stemming from Directive 2012/27/EU, to renovate (in terms of EE) 3% of the total floor area of public buildings per year. Its contribution to the goals set by the National programme for the EE renovation of public buildings and 3rd National Energy Efficiency Action Plan has significant potentials for energy and costs savings. Also, the public sector is expected to take an exemplary role in providing investments and behavior change that will serve as a model for investments in other types of buildings. Challenge arises in the implementation part: in fact, the gap between the 3rd NEEAP and action on the ground is considerable. A high number of investments is planned to achieve just minimal requirements (30% in efficiency improvements). Because of inadequate planning and lack of knowledge, investments leading to better performances (40-60% and deep retrofit) are put aside although the period of economic return is shorter and CO2 emissions lower. Local and regional authorities lack expertise to envisage proper objectives and allocation of financial resources. There is a need of an integrated approach to energy planning, integrating technical, environmental, economic and social criteria, and enabling the tailoring of planned measures to the peculiar features of each territory.  Which partners are working on this? IRENA - Istrian Regional Energy Agency Ltd. Center for Monitoring Business Activities in the Energy Sector and Investment The Istrian Region Operational Programme Lazio Region ¬ ERDF 2014¬2020. - Thematic Objective 4 "Sustainable Energy and Mobility", Investment Priority c), Objective“Reduction of energy consumptions in public or for public use buildings and structures, private residential or non residential buildings, and integration of renewable energies”, Action 4.1.1 "Promotion of eco­efficiency and reduction of primary energy consumption in public buildings and structures: interventions for single buildings or complex renovation, installation of intelligent remote control systems, control, management, monitoring and fine­tuning of energy consumptions (smart buildings) as well of pollutant emissions, also through the use of technology mix”. Action 4.1.1 of the Regional 2014-2020 ERDF Operational Programme aims to promote energy retrofitting of public buildings via energy audits as a point of departure for improving the performance through thermal insulation and efficient technologies, district heating, co-generation, tri-generation, remote control and management systems and local production of energy. The Region Lazio is aiming at retrofitting 600 public buildings annually reducing energy consumption by 10.000 MWh and CO2 emissions by 6000 tons. The public housing stock of the Metropolitan City of Rome (MCR) amounts to 400 buildings of which 330 are secondary school complexes. MCR has set itself the objective to save 25% of the school’s annual energy costs which amounts to more than 12 million euro. In order to achieve these strategic objectives the conditions must be improved for implementing the local and provincial energy and climate plans, in particular the SEAPs of approximately 80 cities and towns that cover 85% of the inhabitants of the Region and the SEAP of the Metropolitan City itself. In order to achieve the strategic targets of above the Action 4.1.1 has to be rendered accessible for the stakeholders, primarily the local administrations, the Metropolitan City and the Provinces to develop the full potentialities and a long-term, consistent use of the ERDF funds.  Which partners are working on this? Metropolitan City of Capital Rome Eco Gozo Action Plan The Government of Malta launched EcoGozo in 2008 with the intention of triggering a long-term vision and a commitment of implementing a strategy to achieve higher levels of sustainability in four main priority areas: economy; environment; society; culture and identity. The Action Plan, intended to be a short-term strategy to achieve higher levels of sustainability in the Region of Gozo, encompasses a wide range of energy-related and environmental issues that the island faces, and proposes actions specifically aimed at reducing the pressure on the environment and shifting towards low-carbon economy. The methodology is based on an open collaboration with the regional and local authorities to boost measures and funded projects with the aim to effectively tackle and manage all the sensible topics, including: green energy sources, energy efficiency measures, organic agriculture, eco-tourism and cultural heritage, sustainable management of water, waste and natural resources, sustainable transport, etc. The vision of EcoGozo has proven to have put into a coherent framework the crucial elements of sustainable development of the region and continues to be valid. However, the implementation of the measures and actions proposed in the policy instrument is progressing too slowly. SUPPORT will need to give a decisive input for closing this gap quicker. Which partners are working on this? Gozo Regional Committee ”The Energy Masterplan of Alba County” – Sustainable energy development of Alba County The policy instrument has the following objectives: - fostering energy efficiency in all sectors in the county; - increasing the use of energy from local RES; - ensuring a performant energy management through capacity building of Local Authorities in this domain. According to the Energy Masterplan, Local Authorities are supported in the elaboration and implementation of SEAPs (in the framework of the Covenant of Mayors). The main domains of this instrument are strictly related to different Axis of the Regional Operational Programme 20142020: - Axis 3: "Supporting the improvement of energy efficiency in public buildings"; - Axis4: "Supporting sustainable urban development". The main gaps to be addressed in the implementation of the policy instrument regard: the low capacity of Local Authorities in designing and implementing local energy policies; the difficulty in accessing needed funds for the implementation of SEAPs. Which partners are working on this? Alba Local Energy Agency - ALEA Action Plan for Regional Environment Objectives in the County of Kalmar 2014 – 2020 Thematic Area – Climate and Energy (Swedish title: Hållbar utveckling och god livsmiljö i Kalmar län. Regionalt åtgärdsprogram för miljömålen 2015-2020. Temaområde klimat.)  The policy instrument addressed is ambitious in some parts but weak in other. The policy instrument has a rather general description of climate actions, but needs to link up in a more precise way to the detailed actions that can be found in the SEAPs of local governments in order to be able to give targeted support via the Action Plan for the implementation of the local plans. By improving the regional document and include the local ambitions in the regional policy document –the local authorities will become even more motivated to strengthen their local climate work. The policy instrument has been used and improved during 15 years. Focus is now changing from larger environmental threats for example industry towards the daily agenda. How to we act? How do we transport our self and goods? How and what do we consume? By this change the work structure has been improved, but there is lack of motivation among the public sector, the staff working with climate strategies and planning are only a few and they are often operating far away from the real decision makers.

Thematic Objective 4: To promote the shift towards a low carbon economy in all sectors. PI.4.3. To support to energy efficiency and use of renewable energies in public infrastructures and equipment, including public buildings and housing. LEA 4.4.: Rehabilitation actions aimed at the promotion of measures related to energy efficiency and savings in buildings, housing and equipment in Andalusia, both of public and private ownership. The instrument follows the strategy devised by the Junta de Andalusia for the period 2014-2020, aiming at contributing to smart, sustainable growth whilst achieving social, territorial and economic cohesion during the programming period. It defines a set of priorities aligned with those of the Europe 2020 Strategy, by means of Thematic Objectives included in 2014-2020 Spain’s Association Agreement. FAMP, like other SUPPORT partners, addresses the T.O.4 "To promote the shift towards a low carbon economy in all sectors", more specifically the PI.4.3 "To support to energy efficiency and use of renewable energies in public infrastructures and equipment, including public buildings and housing", LEA 4.4 -"Rehabilitation actions aimed at the promotion of measures related to energy efficiency and savings in buildings, housing and equipment in Andalusia, both of public and private ownership". The reason for the selection of this Priority Action lies in the need to address the general low efficiency of the energy system in Andalusia, where the implementation of energy efficiency measures - also in spite of the strong presence of the Covenant of Mayors in Andalusia, with 535 signatories amongst cities and towns - lags behind. ERDF funds will have a central role in improving this situation and SUPPORT will provide FAMP and the Ministry of Economy and Knowledge of the Region with operative knowledge on how to optimally use these funds to implement EE measures in local administrations.

Operational Programme Innovation and Competitiveness 2014-2020 (OPIC), Priority Axis 3 "Energy and Resource Efficiency", Thematic Objective 4 and Thematic Objective 6 Priority Axis 3 "Energy and Resource Efficiency" will provide targeted support for the transition to a low carbon economy in all sectors of production (Thematic Objective 4) and promote efficient use of resources (Thematic Objective 6). Promoting energy efficiency and resource efficiency in enterprises, especially those from the manufacturing industry, is a important and imperative process since these companies contribute in the greatest extent to the low productivity of resources and the low energy efficiency of the economy. The need for modernisation of the Bulgarian service and industry sector is immense. The policy instrument responds adequately to the priorities and needs for promoting a low carbon economy and society. It is being addressed because it is at the center of the mission of the partner. The improvement will mainly have to do with a wide-spread and efficient application. SUPPORT will provide the occasion for a better understanding of how to raise awareness and empower stakeholders to access the funds available and use them in the most effective and efficient manner.   Which partners are working on this?

Energy efficiency in buildings and particularly in public buildings constitutes an important part of this effort. The potential for this is represented mainly through the actions local governments foresee in their Energy Plans, often SEAPs elaborated in the context of the Covenant of Mayors (CoM). The challenge is to render the policy instrument accessible to local governments. The improvements that will come out of the interregional collaboration will be used to support the public authorities in acceding the ERDF funds for implementing their energy efficiency actions contained in their local energy plans.  Which partners are working on this?

In order to achieve the SP6, the implementation of projects, which are prioritized through strategic concepts, should be encouraged and co-funded. The support also includes the establishment of new advisory and information services as well as increasing the regional municipal and public private information sharing. The identified OP priorities should be used to reach on local level the targets of the Climate Protection Strategy of Rhineland Palatinate (reducing GHG emissions by 40% until 2020 compared to the 1990 base value and by 90% until 2050 by fostering energy efficiency and the use of RES, and by promoting capacity building in energy management, especially in the public sector) and are to be aligned target-oriented. Local climate protection strategies or energy action plans, like SEAPs, are the basis to ensure long-term, consistent approaches and are a requirement to access ERDF funding. Municipalities and stakeholders should be supported in the use of ERDF to ensure the achievement of the Climate Action Strategy targets and of SP6.  Which partners are working on this?
