PhD topic 

My research addresses the relatively new idea of Smart Specialisation (SmSp) and examines whether, how and under what specific pre-conditions its effective execution could influence the ability of technologically backward regions to catch up with advanced economies and bridge the European convergence gap.  

The project is carried out thanks to ESRC funding.
