The approved action plan of the BRIDGES project additional activities foresees the identification of ten (10) good practices [GP], exploring the five (5) themes: explore five (5) types of GPs: (a) Tools for targeting value chain [VC] re-shoring & near-shoring segments; (b) instruments for identifying interregional complementarities related to value chain re- and near- shoring priorities; (c)Targeted, VC related science-based entrepreneurship programmes and TRL 5-8 promotion; (d) Integration of Green Deal & Digital Transformation into VC; (e) Benefitting from European Digital Innovation Hubs [EDIHs]. The aim is to prepare regions for mainstreaming value chain measures into regional strategies and namely into the partner regions' RIS3. The objective is to provide an enabling environment for value chain re-shoring and in-shoring and also recognising near-shoring options. Special attention is paid to the identification of interregional complementarities and regional value-chain based strengths.
The GP document is organised into three parts, which will become available -through the Interreg EUROPE BRIDGES location, as soon as the work has been completed: Part 1 Background issues, Part 2 Identified good practices, and Part 3 Conclusions. The present version (20.4.2022) of the document is discussing Parts 1 and 2. Eleven (11) good practices have been identified. The Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform, Innovation Thematic unit has been supporting the good practice search, including the organisation of an online matchmaking session on 30.3.2022.
Each one of the Parts of the GP report can be red also as a stand-alone contribution. Part 3 is expected to be completed by 31.7.2022.
