The workshop 'Smart Specialisation for Sustainable Development Goals', organised by JRC, is linked to the works of the Global Pilot Programme of the UN Inter-Agency Task Team on STI Roadmaps for SDGs.

Agenda and registration

Registration is open. For more information, please visit the event page.


The main aim of the event is to present practical experience and advances in applying Smart Specialisation (S3) as a methodology driving the achievement of the SDGs through the establishment and implementation of transformative localised, place-based, innovation-driven strategies/roadmaps in a number of countries and sub-national territories. This includes EU Member States, regions and cities that are already implementing Smart Specialisation strategies targeted towards SDGs and non-EU countries that chose to adopt the S3 methodology as policy framework and/or reference methodology.


The Addis Ababa Action Agenda recognises science, technology and innovation as a means to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Starting in November 2018, the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has been working to share the EU experience on Smart Specialisation (S3) Strategies as one of the global methodologies for Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Roadmaps for the achievement of SDGs, with a distinctive localised (place-based) approach and widespread application across EU regions. At the same time, there has been a growing interest in adopting S3 as a reference approach to localised innovation-led transformation agendas in a number of countries across the globe, as well as an increasing focus on SDGs as key framework for setting targets and ambitions.
