Peer Review Castilla y León
Thu September 30 2021, from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Castilla y Leon is one of the European regions with the most advanced smart specialisation strategy. The regional government and all the socio-economic actors of this Spanish region has been strongly involved in executing an actual transformative agenda. The proposal for the second-generation strategy includes an evolved system of governance that allows detailed monitoring of all actions implemented and facilitates the reallocation of priorities.

Event details

Validate the first design of the 2021-2027 and get suggestions for the new strategy. During the peer review the new version of the S3 will be presented to a group of regional development experts. Experts and regional representatives will provide feedback to propose improvements. The meeting allows other regional economic practitioners to learn and contribute with their ideas to improve this second smart specialisation strategy of Castilla y Leon. 
RIS3 Strategy 2021-2027 
It builds on the progress achieved in RIS3 2014-2020 and represents a new approach with respect to the previous RIS3, with a greater emphasis on a reduced set of objectives and priorities. The focus of the priorities has also evolved with respect to the previous one, moving from sectoral areas to three major vectors of transformation of the economy, which aim to align the efforts of all sectors in a more cross-cutting manner: a territory with quality of life; a region carbon neutral and fully circular; and a bet on smart manufacturing and cybersecurity. 
RIS3 2021-2027 is an open and evolving strategy, it includes mechanisms to implement a continuous EDP of business opportunities, based on participatory governance. The preparation of the RIS3 of Castilla y León 2021-2027 has been developed from September 2020 to June 2021, and the first draft has been published in July 2021. This international meeting organise by EURADA will provide additional feedback to improve the RIS3 Strategy of Castilla y Leon 2021-2027.
