The "Science for Smart Specialisation (S3) workshop: Combining old and new approaches for monitoring and evaluating innovation policies"session will include cases of how public and private agents are doing this in the S3 context as well as draw from other novel practices.  The workshop is organised within the OPEN Evaluation 2016 conference (24 - 25 November 2016, Vienna) by the Danube-INCO.NET project.
Particular attention will be paid to innovative ways of combining the vast quantities of heterogeneous (big, unstructured) data together with established official statistics and more participatory methods such as foresight in domains that are very prominent innovation priorities in the region (ICT, KETs, health & sustainable innovation).
How can such new combinations open the way to more accurate depictions of the knowledge flows, their materialisation and their effect on the innovative performance of European territories? How can we better map new emerging innovation activities in territories on which less official statistics are available?
Insights from this workshop will feed into policy practices for monitoring and evaluating S3 within and across EU and neighbouring territories.
