Description: “In order to optimise the added value from investments funded wholly or in part through the budget of the Union in the field of research and innovation, synergies should be sought in particular between the operation of ESIF and H2020, as set up in Regulation (EU) No 1291/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council, whilst respecting their distinct objectives.” Source: Common Provisions Regulation (CPR), 17 December 2013.

The content of this workshop stems from the need to fully exploit the opportunities for synergies combining funds from EU Framework programmes and Structural Funds, under the framework of Smart Specialisation (RIS3) for the fulfillment of Cohesion Policy.

This workshop intends to be a highly practical, and it is aimed at providing examples in which EF/ESIF and FP7/H2020 funds have been combined in order to leverage the impact of R&I investments as well as analyse key success factors and barriers on building synergies.

It is addressed to national and/or regional authorities, universities, local industry, research and technology centres, development and innovation agencies as well as other stakeholders who can work closely  for the realization of synergies.
