On April 17 and 18, MOSTA - Research and Higher Education Monitoring and Analysis Center hosted the third international meeting between the partner regions of the Manumix Interreg Europe project led by Innobasque.

During these days the partner regions have shared the degree of individual and collective progress of the project in order to strengthen and improve the evaluation of the policy mix in advanced manufacturing.

This third meeting, focused on monitoring and indicators, has allowed participating regions to expand their knowledge of existing indicators to monitor programs and potential indicators to measure the combination of policies.

The sessions also have allowed to continue with the process of contrast, called peer review, between partner regions started last March in Euskadi. In this case, a delegation of Basque experts and a Welsh representation have analyzed the combination of the advanced manufacturing programs of the Lithuanian Government. The results obtained from this contrast will be taking in account to improving the design of the combination of the R + D + i programs available in Lithuania.

The next meeting, focused on the evaluation of the combination of innovation policies, will take place on 10 and 11 July in Cardiff, Wales.
