LARS project launched in Vaasa, Finland

date 01.12.2017

The Interreg project LARS – Learning Among Regions on Smart Specialisation – was launched in Vaasa, Finland on the 5th – 6th of October.

The two day kick-off event concentrated on the first day on a thorough discussion on various details of the project plan in order to ensure a common understanding of the goals and on the next steps. On the second day practicalities linked to the project administration and communication were on the agenda.

The project is currently working on the selection of the final intervetion areas or rather on narrowing down teh intervention areas suggested in the proposal. This will form the base for the innovation system gap-analysis that will commence in March 2018.
