Week of Cities and Regions Local Event under the theme 'Sustainable Innovation in Less Urban Areas in the North' where good experiences on practical implementation of Smart Specialisation will be presented. The event will interact with the audience in an open discussion on the future of Northernmost Europe.
17-19th November 2016. The Arctic Innovation Camp Finland, under the title "The Value of the Smart Specialisation Strategy -Beyond the Boundaries in the Northernmost Europe". The Arctic Innovation camp will gather approximatively 60-70 people from around Europe from a diversity of ages, disciplines, backgrounds and cultures to co-create and support the development of the entrepreneurial and civic spirit in Europe. The debates will be structured around the following core challenges:
• Developing the strategic partnership (Cluster Partnerships) for smart specialisation investments in the territorial basis. Two subgroups will be established with more detailed challenges. More information about the strategic partnership
• Northernmost Rural communities - nurturing the 'truffles' for the entrepreneurial discovery
