Title: “Is the notion of Smart Specialisation working for Europe's follower regions? Lessons from Southern regions”

Dates: Oct 2013 - Sept 2017

George Papamichail is a 3+1 ESRC Research Student (Grant ES/J500136/1). His research seeks to investigate the emerging role Smart Specialisation is currently taking as a relatively new academic concept in the regional innovation studies. Focusing particularly on less-favoured EU environments, George examines whether, how and under what specific conditions Smart Specialisation practices could influence the ability of technologically backward regions to catch up.
