  • Develop measures to achieve the goals
  • Develop instruments for measuring the achievement of the goals

The objectives result in the following scientifically based support of the implementation of the process of strategy development by Fraunhofer ISI:

  • Analysis of the current situation and implementation of a 360° trend analysis (STEEP) to determine external influences and future framework conditions
  • Mapping of the innovation environment and involvement of the main actors from research and innovation
  • Identification of a development plan for the year 2030 for the development of South Tyrol in the areas of research and innovation, including the development of strategic goals for the innovation strategy for Smart Specialisation
  • Identification of milestones and development of measures in a corresponding roadmap
  • Development of an integrated monitoring system to supervise and evaluate the achievement of objectives within the innovation strategy
  • Successful integration of all key regional players from research and innovation
