This paper suggests that the promotion of inter-regional collaboration – during the implementation of the research and innovation strategies for smart specialisation (RIS3) –can be complemented by the experience gained by the European Territorial Cooperation (ETC) instrument (also known as Interreg). In a moment where regions are focused on the implementation of their RIS3, this paper aims at illustrating how regions could capitalise on the Interreg experience and overcome barriers when promoting collaboration among regions in the scope of their S3 priorities.
