The training is a part of the Croatia Cluster Competitiveness Global Value Chain (GVC) Assessment Project, where the World Bank is assisting and supporting the Government of Croatia in its efforts to improve the Republic of Croatia’s competitiveness. The programme focused on selected Global Value Chains, as identified in specific Priority Thematic Areas (PTA), and Sub-thematic Priority Areas (STPAs) defined under the Croatia’s Smart Specialisation Strategy (S3), adopted by Government decision on 30th March 2016. 

The methodology provides a perfect foundation for successful implementation of Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3).
