Fora & Workshops

KEN’s mission and objectives are fulfilled through several activities:

Annual Forum in Maribor, Slovenia (early June);
Addressing each year several aspects of knowledge economy with particular reference to the regional level. The Forum brings together Triple Helix policy makers and stakeholders from European regions.
The event is taking place at HIT’s 5-star Hotel »Perla« in Nova Gorica.

Preparatory Workshops (organized between March and May);
Each year 3-4 workshops are organized in KEN partner regions/countries, addressing one of the specific topics of the Forum’s agenda for the year. The preparatory workshops produce the draft-recommendations addresses to stakeholders, regional/local, national and EU policy makers. Usually the workshops (attended by 20-30 participants) are organized in the afternoon, while in the morning a bigger conference takes place to involve more people in the discussions on the chosen subjects.

Workshops of EREF Network for South Eastern Europe (organized during the same period);
Regional Workshops address Forum topics with particular reference to their proper environment. Reports on conclusions adopted are presented to the Knowledge Economy Network (KEN) plenary, thereby allowing participants from EU member states to better understand the issues of knowledge economy in these countries and regions.

Annual meeting of Regional/Local Lisbon Agenda Coordinators (during the Forum);
Coordinators responsible for Lisbon Agenda/ EU2020 meet to exchange their experience, identify successful policies and select good practice in pursuing this strategic objective.
