EUA issues response to EC Consultation on Smart Specialisation

The European University Association (EUA) published its response to a European Commission public consultation on Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation (RIS3) on 24 March 2017.

The EUA had set up an Expert Group on RIS3 that worked together with the Research Policy Working Group (RPWG) in preparing this response. The EUA’s response highlights the importance of political support, transparency and convergence of innovation policies and the need for more synergies between EU instruments and programmes. It also underlines that human talent acts as a fundamental driver of innovation and proposes to provide greater flexibility of cohesion fund use in order to further improve the responsiveness of regions to new emergent areas of research and innovation.
