Workshop on “Universities promoting regional innovation across Europe” and EUA-RIS3 Expert Group meeting

With the aim of supporting European universities in the implementation and follow-up of Research and Innovation Smart Specialisation Strategies (RIS3), as well as to coordinate policy input to the European Institutions, EUA is developing activities in the area of RIS3 through the EUA-RIS3 Expert Group and through regular workshops convened jointly by EUA and National Rectors’ Conferences (NRCs).

The Workshop on “Universities Promoting Regional Innovation across Europe” is the first in a series of workshops on RIS3 and it is jointly organised by Crue Universidades Españolas, CPU (Conférence des présidents d'université) and EUA. This workshop aims to bring together experts, case studies and good practice examples of universities’ role in regional policy and in smart specialisation strategies, from different European regions. It will also serve as a platform for sharing experiences, challenges and opportunities related to the strategic role of universities in the implementation of Smart Specialisation across Europe.

The first meeting of the EUA-RIS3 Expert Group will take place back-to-back to the first EUA-RIS3 workshop. Its aim will be to extract the main conclusions of the case studies presented during the workshop, identifying elements that cut across EU regions, and outlining messages to deliver to the European Commission in framework of the ESIF Structured Dialogue, in which EUA is represented. The main topics for discussion in the Expert Group meeting include the promotion of local innovation, synergies between RIS3 and H2020, RIS3 and regions R&I capacity and measuring local innovation.
