"Mr President, I very much welcome the committee’s focus on smart specialisation as a means of promoting effective investment in research and innovation. In tough economic times we must ensure that funding in research and innovation is not spread too widely or haphazardly. Instead, investment should surround a limited a number of priorities and be targeted where there is the greatest economic potential. I am pleased that the report recognises this need. As the report highlights, establishing regional innovation incubators is vital. In my own constituency of Northern Ireland, I was delighted to visit the Innovation Growth Centre in Omagh, which opened last May. It received GBP 2.3 million in funding from the INTERREG IV programme and is part of an extension of cross-border links with Leitrim in the Republic of Ireland. Furthermore, it is good to see the potential behind the ‘smart region’ concept, which is being worked on by Omagh and Fermanagh Councils. The project will be enhanced by combining the two councils in the coming years."@en1
