Wednesday, 25 November, 2020
Online 14:00 – 15:30 CET

This webinar is an opportunity to explore how "cooperation actions" could be possible and serve the needs of S3 thematic platforms regional partnerships for better cooperation and implementation of RIS3 strategies as well as for the exchange and the improvement of public policies and practices.

There are currently 33 different thematic areas under the 3 thematic S3 thematic platform, including more than 200 regions in total.

As consequence of the first findings of the mapping of the arrangements for interregional cooperation in IGJ Regional OPs, where there is a huge interest in RIS3 topics, it is necessary to raise the awareness  regarding the practical use of provisions under art. 96.3d CPR as well as the legislative framework for 2021-2027 programming period as laid down in art. 17(3)(d)(v) of the draft Common Provisions Regulation.

This webinar is targeted to Regional Partnerships established under the European Commission – Joint Research Centre S3 thematic platform as well as to Managing Authorities of Regional Operational Programmes under the IGJ goal.

Please find all the relevant knowledge available on the Interact Library.


  • This is now the time for designing and drafting the corresponding Regional OPs and to encourage the inclusion of the partnerships’ activities into Programmes’ strategies, and this webinar will provide information about the practicalities and the dedicated draft “Operational Guidelines”.
  • The session will also provide opportunities for exploring eventual concrete doubts and questions about cooperation actions under IGJ goal as well as the needs and difficulties that regions are facing to allow these cooperation actions and approaches.
  • This session will also provide inspiration to identify pending needs for the further supporting actions that Interact could implement for all EU regions and IGJ Programmes that may want to explore such possibilities.
