About POLISS project
POLISS is an Innovative Training Network funded by the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (H2020-MSCA-ITN) bringing together 7 European Universities and 13 Partners with the aim of contributing to the improvement of the EU’s Smart Specialisation Policy.
Smart Specialisation is a successful innovative approach that aims to boost sustainable growth, levels of employment and social cohesion in Europe, by enabling each region to identify and develop its own competitive advantages. The process of setting up Smart Specialisation is known as Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation (RIS3) and involves different stakeholders such as local authorities, academia, civil society, businesses and entrepreneurs.
