The Smart Specialisation Strategy (S3) has grown in importance within the European Union and represents one of the conditions of eligibility for certain EU funding applications. In Slovenia, the Sector for the Coordination of Smart Specialisation, which is part of the Government Office for Development and European Cohesion Policy of the Republic of Slovenia (Si GOEDCP), is responsible for its proper preparation, management and monitoring.

The revision of S4 is partly based on the revision of the action plans of nine Strategic Development & Innovation Partnerships (SRIPs), which will form the basis of more effective targeting of support, development and legislative measures of the State in 2021–2027.
At SRIP Smart Buildings and Home including Wood Chain, we have also completely revised the action plan, with the aim of simplifying members’ operations in the areas of joint development, value chains support, internationalisation, human resources development, and more.
At TECES, which is the holder and one of SRIP PSiDL’s content coordinators, we have been particularly focused on providing comprehensive support to strategic research & development and technological demo projects, as well as human resources development, in coordinated areas consistent with TECES members’ priority orientations.
In particular, these areas are green technology and energy-efficient solutions, the digitalisation and connectivity of electric devices and systems, and conversion and energy consumption – all of which are considered priorities by most TECES members and stakeholders.
Workshop of representatives of the ministries and nine SRIPs as part of the “entrepreneurial discovery” process
A joint workshop comprising representatives of the ministries and nine SRIPs was organised on Wednesday, 2 September 2020, under the auspices of the Government Office for Development and European Cohesion Policy of the Republic of Slovenia (Si GOEDCP), as part of the “entrepreneurial discovery” aspect of S4’s revision. The purpose of the workshop was to present the results of the submitted SRIPs action plan review, to talk about the planned activities for the next round of the “entrepreneurial discovery” aspect of S4’s revision and for there to be exchange of views between the ministries.
At the workshop, Matej Gajzer, the Managing Director of both SRIP PSiDL and TECES, and as one of SRIP’s coordinators, presented the key aspects of the action plan’s revision, the focus areas of operation and the revised focus areas and product directions of SRIP PSiDL, along with future areas of activity for TECES.
