Regional support

Smart specialisation is a process where regions work strategically to strengthen future competitiveness.

The Swedish Agency for Regional and Economic Growth has, from 2016, a government assignment to support regions with their work on smart specialisation. We will spread knowledge and experience from this work. We do this by arranging conferences, events to exchange experiences and workshops about smart specialisation.

We provide analyses and evidence that can support the regions in developing and implementing their strategies. We also have programs aimed at regional clusters that are highlighted in S3 strategies as responsible for implementation, as well as promoting cooperation between regions.
