ClusterPoliSEE main objective is to enhance the capacity of regional policy makers to confront, prevent and anticipate change, developing smart specialization strategies for cluster improvement, thus accelerating differentiation and structural change towards a knowledge-based economy in which there is a place for all SEE regions to position themselves. 25 members partnership covers 11 different SEE programme countries (8 EU MSs and 3 IPA) to develop smarter cluster policies supporting territorial cohesion, R&D and open innovation systems in SEE, encouraging transnational cluster cooperation between strong performing regions and weak performing regions both represented. Project proposal adopts a methodological approach based on experiments in reflective policy making, basis for better policy formulation and implementation, foreseeing the creation of mutual learning tools suitable for learning process, mechanisms development, fitting for a wide numbers and dimension of stakeholders consultations, applying the methodological approach provided by Six Countries Programme. Main outputs: - Reflective policy making mechanism pattern - Intelligent benchmarking methodology for specific cluster policy- developed and tested through pilot - Training package as S3 common knowledge base - Foresight exercise reports - Ongoing operation of a collaborative ICT platform - Comparative benchmarking analysis - Institutional Agreement for SEE Initiative ClusterPoliSEE supports transnational development of policy learning understanding and mechanisms and this makes knowledge exchange and mutual learning from experience mostly impacting on current policy and business practice, and the perspective of world class cluster formation and transnational aggregation more concrete and viable overall.
