Smart Specializations

The concept of Smart Specializations aims at indicating areas with a high potential, specializing in selected fields of science and technology, research&development works, and innovative undertak-ings taking part in the region's economic development, but also impacting its competitiveness on a national and international scale. The need for each region to determine a list of such specializations results from the European Commission's guidelines concerning the New Financial Perspective for 2014-2020.

In terms of a competition announced on 14.05.2014 the Pomeranian Voivodeship Government has selected four Pomeranian Smart Specializations (Polish: Inteligentne Specjalizacje Pomorza - ISP). One of them is the "Interactive technologies in an information-saturated environment" Specialization developed in terms of the Interizon Pomeranian ICT Cluster. The PSS agreement has been signed on 28.01.2016.

Interactive technologies


Projects fitting the Pomeranian Smart Specialization, coordinated by the Interizon Cluster, will have a chance to take advantage of preferences concerning access to EU funds on a regional level in terms of the Pomeranian Regional Operational Programme for the years 2014-2020 with the budg-et of EUR 1.8 billion, as well on as national (for example in terms of the Smart Growth Operational Programme) and European levels (Horizon 2020).
