Higher Education Instruments and Smart Specialisation Innovative Industrial Doctorates and Higher Technical Institutes in Puglia

JRC Technical Reports MARINELLI, Elisabetta; CAVICCHI, Alessio; FIORE, Annamaria; PAVIOTTI, Gigliola; GERUSSI, Elisa; IAMMARINO, Simona.
This document reports the action-research activities conducted under the HESS (Higher Education in Smart Specialisation). project in the region of Puglia (IT). The authors explored two instruments at the opposite end of the higher education spectrum: 1) Istituti Tecnici Superiori (ITSs), i.e. Higher Technical Institutes, a form of technology-based vocational education and training. 2) Innovative Industrial Doctorates (IIDs). These new instruments have not been explicitly taken into account during the development and early implementation of the strategy; however, it has become increasingly important to reflect on the process of human capital creation for S3. The report explores the challenges and opportunities ITSs and IIDs pose, as a first step to understand their potential contribution to Smart Specialisation.

Higher Education for Smart Specialisation A Handbook

EDWARDS, John; MARINELLI, Elisabetta (Editors)
This Handbook provides advice for S3 managers on how to form closer partnerships with Higher Education Institutions, including understanding Higher Education systems and career incentives, the role played by HEIs in the EDP and monitoring, how to design effective funding instruments, and the involvement of HEIs in S3 governance structures.

Higher Education for Smart Specialisation: Towards strategic partnerships for innovation

S3 Platform Policy Briefs John Edwards, Elisabetta Marinelli, Eskarne Arregui-Pabollet, Louise Kempton
This Policy Brief reports on the results of the first phase of the project 'Higher Education for Smart Specialisation' (HESS). This includes an analysis of a survey of S3 Platform members related to the role of HEIs in the design and implementation of their S3, an introduction to how the European Social Fund may finance human capital elements of innovation, and a summary of the two pilot case studies in Navarra and North East Romania.

Higher Education for Smart Specialisation The Case of Navarre, Spain

Igor Campillo, Eskarne Arregui-Pabollet, Javier Gómez Prieto
This report gathers the main findings extracted from the Navarre case study carried out in the framework of the Higher Education and Smart Specialisation (HESS) project managed by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission. Navarre has been one of the two regions covered as case studies during the first phase of the project.

Universities and RIS3: the case of Catalonia and the RIS3CAT Communities

18/2016 Elisabetta Marinelli, Susana Elena-Perez, Josep Alias
This report contributes to the debate on the role of Higher Education Institutions in RIS3 by exploring the case of Catalonia. It first assesses the role of universities in the overall design and implementation of the Catalan RIS3 and EDP, and then goes in depth into one of its key instruments, namely the RIS3CAT Communities. The latter provide a platform for triple-helix stakeholders to interact and agree on a set of collaborative projects, which can be partially funded by public resources. Based on in-dept interviews with senior university managers and desk-based research, the study highlights how HEIs are evolving and adapting to the new policy environment and identifies the advantages and challenges posed by RIS3CAT Communities as a policy instrument.

Universities and Smart Specialisation

03/2013 Louise Kempton, John Goddard, John Edwards, Fatime Barbara Hegyi and Susana Elena-Pérez
This Policy Brief analyses the potential role of universities in the development and implementation of RIS3. Universities are often crucial institutions in regional innovation systems, especially in those with an absence of a dynamic, research led private sector, and there is rich history of academic and policy analysis in this area.
