The first monitoring report of Lithuanian Smart Specialization Strategy (thereafter S3) is dedicated for policymakers, policy implementing agencies, researchers and related institutions, business representatives and the public. This report is intendent to inform on the status of S3 regarding the progress of the prioritized fields of research, experimental development and innovations.
Our aim is to stir the public debate regarding the progress of the strategy implementation. Furthermore, the report is intended to present the monitoring methodology to local and foreign partners. However, some of the monitoring findings should be taken cautiously, because their accuracy is not completely verified.
Moreover, with this report we expect to receive some feedback regarding the implementation of the strategy and its monitoring. We hope that the shared insights will help us both to improve the strategy’s implementation and the monitoring methodology.
