OFFER DESCRIPTION

Bocconi University invites applications for one Early Stage Researcher (ESR) Fellowships funded as part of the Marie Curie European Training Networks, under the European Commission’s H2020 Framework Programme.

The recruited ESR will join the project “Policies for Smart Specialisation” with a 2-year Marie Curie Skłodowska fellowship (see www.poliss.eu )

The Research Programme

Smart Specialisation is a successful innovation policy concept, which has become a cornerstone of the European cohesion policy and also addresses several of the Sustainable Development Goals. However, the early implementation of SmartSpec policies has raised concerns among scholars and policy makers, who have pointed to a number of gaps in its conceptualisation, design and implementation.

POLISS tackles these gaps with the aim of making the design, implementation and evaluation of Smart Spec policies more effective in Europe.

POLISS aims at:

- providing new systematic evidence and methodological tools to scholars, policy makers and local practitioners for designing and assessing SmartSpec actions in EU regions and beyond

- building a PhD programme where a new generation of experts in regional development and innovation policy will be trained and once graduated will be possibly employed in regional, national and European private or public organisations that work on regional development and innovation

- providing a forum for coordinating the vast community of researchers and practitioners working on local development and innovation policies, which is often sparse and fragmented

The research programme is structured around the five principles of SmartSpec design:

• Entrepreneurial discovery

• Inclusiveness

• Evolutionary

• Experimental

• Supportive

Across these five areas, scientific training courses, soft-skill-courses and research-in-progress workshops will provide new skills and ensure interaction and exchange between research fellows.

Throughout the programme, appointed candidates will be expected to attend a number of multidisciplinary research-related scientific courses as well as courses for transferable competences and employability skills. These will be organised by the project partners who are:

• Utrecht University, The Netherlands

• Bocconi University, Italy

• University of Stavanger; Norway

• Spanish National Research Council, Spain

• London School of Economics and Political Science, UK

• University of Vienna, Austria

• University of Pécs, Hungary
