The Regional Innovation Strategy of the Pilsen Region has defined four priority fields, the so-called domains of intelligent specialization, in which the Pilsen Region already plays an important international role, and which may represent a significant factor in its future economic competitiveness. The focus on carefully identified priority domains is geared toward creating the best possible combination of players and activities involved which have the greatest chance of unlocking the innovation and transformation potential in each field.

As a basis for the region?s identity and uniqueness the Pilsen Region supports the systematic development of four sector priorities.
