Workshop: Shaping the model of flagships
Wednesday, 31st January 2018 at 9:30am - 4pm
Location:Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy, REGIO ROOM BU-5 02/059, Avenue de Beaulieu 1, Brussels, Belgium
This event is in the past.
The concept of flagships still needs to be harmonised, expectations on flagships streamlined, and ways agreed on as to how to communicate flagship results in terms of policy impact, added value and the lasting change brought by the EUSBSR.
The concept of Flagship was introduced in order to distinguish this format from projects as such: “Flagships” are developmental processes that aim at creating broad impact on the development of the region, while projects aim at finding impactful solutions for our common problems in narrower areas.
The two formats are deeply intertwined, but they are not identical. The concept of flagships has the potential to become the main format for implementation of MRS, integrating different perspectives and funding, involving stakeholders based on multi-level governance and using project chains for alignment of funding.
What needs to be further elaborated is whether policy makers can be involved already in development processes within the flagships and/or how to bridge results from flagships to policy impact.
The Baltic Sea Strategy aims at reaching more stakeholders.
Regional meetings will attract stakeholders from several sectors and levels of governance to learn more about what the Baltic Sea Strategy can offer in the form of a framework for effective cooperation. Two regional meetings have already taken place, in Umeå and in Hässleholm.
More information about the event in Hässleholm can be found here.
