Tried and tested structures were put in place as a basis for steering the various processes. Thus, the Cluster Council of the Thuringian ClusterManagement was merged to form the RIS3 Cluster Board. The Cluster Board is the steering committee for the Thuringian Innovation Strategy. The existing Thuringian ClusterManagement became the RIS3 Management Team and is currently responsible for running the RIS3 Office.
The task of implementing the content established as the Thuringian Innovation Strategy is primarily shouldered by five Working Groups: “Industrial production and systems”, “Healthy living and the healthcare sector”, "Sustainable energy supply and resource management“, “Sustainable and smart mobility & logistics”, and “Information & communication technology, innovative and production-related services.”
The RIS3 Task Force assists with the implementation of RIS3 Thuringia. It liaises between the Working Groups / Cluster Board and “Grant Management” (TMWWDG, TAB, ThCM/LEG Thüringen) while also steering the activities of the Free State to implement the action plans / the master action plan.
