EUROPEAN DEVELOPMENT POLICIES
The RIS3 is focused on the national and regional smart specialization strategies. The European Commission demands every European region to choose their development priorities based on research and innovation, so they can design a “Research and Innovation Smart Specialization Strategy” (RIS3) of their own.
One of the main RIS3 objectives is to find entrepreneurs looking for efficiency and creating synergy and innovation to transform the regional economy. “The most promising way for a region to promote growth based on knowledge consists in the diversification of technologies and services. Innovation must also be based on social practices, human capital and new forms of cooperation. What matters is not diversification per se but rather specialized technological diversification in emerging economic activities and thus achieve higher added-value.”
“The Green Action Plan (GAP) aims to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) take advantage of the opportunities offered by the transition to a green economy. It presents ways for SMEs to turn environmental challenges into business opportunities”-. 2015, European Commission
Objectives of the GAP:
- To raise SMEs’ awareness of resource efficiency improvements and the potential of the circular economy for productivity, competitiveness and business opportunities.
- To inform SMEs about EU resource efficiency actions under the COSME, Horizon 2020 and LIFE programs, also the European Structural and Investment Funds.
The GAP aims to help businesses by:
- Improving productivity,
- Driving down costs,
- Supporting green entrepreneurship,
- Developing European leadership in green processes and technologies.
The European Green Action Plan understands the progress of the efficient use of resources depends on the conjoint of a value-chain approach with the application of complex technical solutions in the companies. It is estimated the efficient use of resources along the value-chain may reduce between 17% and 24% the need for raw materials. Moreover, circular business models are likely to create business opportunities with the development of green technologies for existing and forthcoming SMEs in all sectors, services industry included.
