About BAK S3 Association

We founded the BAK Smart Specialisation Association to combine the interest of experts and interested parties in smart specialisation strategies. The association also diffuses knowledge about smart specialisation strategies through various events and trainings, such as online courses, seminars and workshops. Smart specialisation means identifying the unique characteristics and assets of each region and highlighting each region's true competitive advantages and unique potential. This requires a substantial amount of practical and theoretical knowledge. Thus, the BAK S3 Association is unique in offering the combination of regional analysis, tools and knowledge dissemination.

In January 2018 there will be two important events:
On 18 January 2018 takes place the first event of the BAK S3 Association in Brussels.
On 15 January 2018 starts the second massive open online course on designing smart specialisation strategies.
