The Regional Co-operation Networks for Industrial Modernisation Initiative (ReConfirm), is an EU funded action to assist European regions and industrial stakeholders in implementing international investment projects, under the Smart Specialisation Platform for Industrial Modernisation.
Support is provided to European regions and industrial stakeholders to connect, form partnerships and ignite joint investment projects to modernise industry together.
The support includes:
• Mapping papers: to provide structured background for partnership activities;
• Collaboration LABs: to identify strategic areas of cooperation and first portfolio of investment ideas;
• Strategic workshops: to involving additional potential partners, finetune co-investment projects and pave the way for a final agreement.
ReConfirm fills a gap of focusing on the development of investments at international level going a step further from just “learning and exchange”.
Achieved so far…
ReConfirm has supported or directly organised 49 Partnership events and 12 Matchmaking events. These key events brought together stakeholders from EU institutions, academia, private companies, regional authorities, clusters, technology centres, industrial associations and networks.
As member of the Reconfirm Consortium, META is facilitating the definition of investment projects of several Partnerships. IT follows the process from the Expression of Interest being accepted by the S3 Platform for Industrial Modernisation to the definition of cross-regional investment projects and vouching of commitment by signing an Investment protocol. The latter is a final step in the process that is a political manifestation of the regions committing their resources towards developing investment projects to the point of obtaining financing.
