In this 5th Newsletter of the LARS project we report on the work on policy transfers between regions. Regional economic performance is fostered by well-targeted policy instruments and it may well be that transnational learning is the fastest path to policy development.
We report on the activities of the period, methodological challenges that we have faced but also on policy advice we can share.
In addition to reporting on past work we are also looking forward. The European Green Deal (GD) is a well-founded and ambitious initiative, but how do you deliver on the GD in the regions? With the GRETA-project extension proposal we seek to pilot a way to combine smart specialisation with the need of a green transformation.
