The GRETA project develops policy tools for sustainable Smart Specialization innovation strategies in the Baltic Sea region to support the transformation of society and economy in line with the European Green Deal. GRETA builds on experiences with methods to support growth developed in the LARS project with environmental targets in two areas: energy (reduction of CO2 emissions, green energy production) and circular economy.
The project period is January 2021– September 2021.
The LARS project goal was to help the public sector in leading smart specialisation processes in their regions and to connect innovation networks across regions.
It helps find solutions tackling the fragmentation of regional systems of innovation looking for entrepreneurial discoveries within such topics as blue growth, bio and circular economy, advanced production methods and technologies for energy efficiency.
The project period was October 2017–September 2020.
