History of RO
As Hungary does not have regional S3 strategies, only a national one, there are no regional observatories or organizations appointed for monitoring tasks and activities. The role of the National Research, Innovation and Development Office is not solely the monitoring of implementation of RIS3 strategy, but also the coordination of compiling the strategy itself. In the compilation of national S3 strategy the regional innovation agencies or local agencies also played significant role in order to define the strengths and opportunities of the counties of Hungary. Because of the unique role, extended network, professional skills of the Hungarian Sport- and Lifestyle Development Cluster in the region, the cluster could be a potential Regional Observatory. The main purpose of the cluster is to promote and co-ordinate the cooperation of the small and medium-sized enterprises, educational, municipal, R+D profile institutions interested in sport and health promotion, and to exploit the potential of the cooperation.
