Abstract: Smart specialization strategies are implemented by the European Commission as a basis for the current structural policy cycle. Smart specialization corresponds to a reorientation of public policies that aim the development of European regions and, through it, economic and social cohesion of Member States. This evolution is based on a change concerning the theoretical representation of territorial dynamics, passing from regional innovation systems to new economic geography and strategic management based models, more focused on innovation and its influence on shaping regional structures. This article examines the impact of this change on the design and implementation of regional policies, as well as the evaluation of their impacts based on an ex ante evaluation of ERDF-ESF of the current Structural Funds Cycle 2014-2020.
