Workshop: Sharing Test and Demonstration Infrastructures, Tampere, 6 April 2017

The workshop is organised one day before the matchmaking event in Tampere. It will bring together policymakers, practitioners of testbeds and business representatives for a dialogue. The workshop will discuss opportunities for sharing transnationally the testbed infrastructures that SMEs benefit from when attempting to make market-ready new bioeconomy and digital economy products, services or processes. There is strong evidence on the correlation between the competitiveness of technology-based SMEs and their access to testbeds. Countries and regions in the Baltic Sea Region have complementary testbed excellence – and thus by networking these excellence areas there is opportunity for offering SMEs specialised testbed services that in the best way suit their innovation needs. Workshop programme. Welcome to Tampere!

Smart specialization accelerator workshop on bio-and circular economy challenges in Vilnius, 28-29 March 2017

The workshop is targeted at the regional partners (Tampere, Skåne, Sor-Trondelag and Vilnius) of the BSR Stars S3 project. Aim of the workshop is to compare and exchange experiences on smart specialization (S3) approaches in different regions. The workshop will also demonstrate the methods to elaborate solutions to regional bio- and circular economy challenges. Concrete bio/circular challenges will be used as a case in the workshop. The challenges could be related to utilization of certain side products from industry, finding a missing piece to a value chain, development of industrial symbiosis etc. As a result the regional representatives will get better understanding on their cases and ideas for solving the cases. Programme of the event

 

Workshop: innovation ecosystem indicators and innovation process management tool in Malmö, 6 March 2017

The aim of the workshop is to discuss and exchange experiences on new ecosystem based approaches to regional innovation management between the BSR regions. The workshop will discuss relevant indicators that would efficiently help identifying and analysing the innovation processes in the region. This workshop will support Tampere region in its plans to elaborate a demo of an online tool that will be piloted in the BSR Stars S3 project, and later disseminated to other involved partner regions. The tool will e.g. help identify actors within a certain field of economy (the pilot will focus on bio- and circular economy), as well as analyse and make conclusions on interaction between the actors. Regions of Tampere, Skåne, Sor-Trondelag and Vilnius will participate in the workshop.

 

Bio- and circular workshop was organised at the Annual Forum of EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region in Stockholm, 8 Nov. 2016

BSR Stars S3 project organised a workshop “Fostering innovation and growth in the bioeconomy through smart specialization” at the 7th Strategy Forum of the EUSBSR in Stockholm on 8-9 November 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden. The Forum was a major networking event with a thematic focus on the future and vision of the Baltic Sea region for 2030. Over 1000 participants from Baltic Sea Region countries have registered to the Forum.

The bioeconomy workshop included a panel discussion on successful approaches in implementing bio- and circular economy efforts represented by cases from Finland, Sweden and Denmark: Paper Province (Sweden), Kalundborg Industial Symbiosis (Denmark) and Tampere Eco-Industrial Park Industrial Symbiosis (Finland). The workshop addressed opportunities for cooperation aimed at sharing knowledge and infrastructures for bio- and circular economy business and innovation support.
