Vanguard Initiative

The Vanguard Initiative was established in 2013 by ten European regions committed to lead by example in delivering growth and jobs through industry-led interregional cooperation, co-creation, and co-investment, on the basis of smart specialisation. 

Since its launch in 2013, the Vanguard Initiative has been recognised as a strong and influential voice for the regional perspective on industrial transition. Our key message: that regions, smart specialisation and cluster-based interregional cooperation are key to new industrial growth, has been widely recognised and positively received by a wide range of partners and stakeholders, including the EU-institutions.
