Aim of Event

Make concrete plans for the ERNACT cities and regions to take full advantage of the enhanced possibilities of digital transformation cooperation in the 2021-2027 programming period.
  1. Evaluate the potential of digital transformation elements contained within the EU 2021-2027 programmes, including Territorial Cooperation, Horizon Europe and Digital Europe
  2. Finalise Smart Specialisation priorities around which ERNACT regions can cooperate to meet their digital transformation priorities.
  3. Agree a development action plan for the ERNACT network for the next 12 months

Description

The ERNACT network of regions have been very successful over the past number of years in assembling a portfolio of European projects that enables member regions to jointly address the challenges and opportunities of integrating digital transformation technologies into key sectors and smart specialisation priorities.

The network is currently implementing 10 transnational and interregional projects, piloting technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Internet of Things in key smart specialisation areas.

The footprint of the network has also been expanded to include a number of new regions and cities, including South Ostrobothnia (Finland) and the City of Ljubljana (Slovenia).

The representatives from the ERNACT regions met in the Brussels Office of the Government of Cantabria.

In addition to exploring short term project opportunities for the next 12 months, the network aims to agree deeper and longer term goals including attraction of new regions, monitoring the evolution of the new EU programmes over the next 12 months and how best to use the period between now and 2021 when the new programmes are scheduled to come on-stream.
