SMART SPECIALIZATION IN PORTUGAL
Smart Specialization aims an effective use of resources in space and time, based on a careful analysis of the existing capabilities of cities, regions or countries, involving multiple stakeholders in a mechanism of governance that explore mutual synergies so that countries, regions, places and persons can be competitive and sustainable in the global economy.
