Abstract: European Cultural Heritage Strategy for the 21st Century (Council of Europe, 2017) has importantly contributed to emphasising integrative intervention logic of heritage policy by shifting from vertical, sector based to cross-sector based horizontal thinking. Paper develops and explain integral logic that combines vertical and horizontal approach. Three integration measures are proposed: weak and strong balance and cohesion. It is illustrated by a hypothetical example showing how integral heritage policy can be programmed (and evaluated) in relatively simple and transparent way, despite its essential complexity.

Abstract: The ‘smart specialization’ is a concept introduced for enhancing innovation in EU. Smartness lies in entrepreneurial discovery of areas of specialisations that best fit innovation potential of the territory. Smartness is defined at meso level of evaluation as horizontal overlaps between three domains of knowledge triangle, education, research, innovation. Overlap is measured as correlation of impacts of evaluated innovation instruments between three domains. Case study suggests that vertical and horizontal, or ‘dumb’ and ‘smart’ innovation policies are in principle equally decisive for enhancing innovation. This suggests new concept of specialization in innovation, that is not merely smart but fully mesoscopic.
