On Tuesday 9 October, the Vanguard Initiative published its position paper on the 2021-2027 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) package.

The Vanguard Initiative is a network of 33 European regions dedicated to advancing industrial innovation in the Union. Based on unique strength of every region, these regions cooperate to offer platforms for business and clusters to meet and join forces in order to find new innovative solutions. The Vanguard Initiative facilitates who wants to get access to new business partners to exchange information and share investments. It works on pilot projects, such as bio-economy, 3D printing, Nano-enabled products and efficient sustainable manufacturing, with a unique approach.

In the position paper, the Vanguard Initiative regions welcome the MFF package as an ambitious renewed agenda for EU industrial and innovation policies and commitment to smart specialisation principles.

The Vanguard Initiative strongly recommend that appropriate funding is secured for supporting interregional collaboration along innovative industrial value chains, on the basis of smart specialisation allowing maximum synergies between regional, national and European investments.
