The Smart Specialisation concept, currently implemented in the European Union, is being widely considered by several countries and regions of Latin-America. The interest towards this approach, highly based on the enhancement of regional innovation capacities, is motivating territorial dialogues, participatory processes and collective vision related to the innovation perspectives of Latin-American regions.

Ukraine's STI system needs ambitious reforms to boost its efficiency and impact. These should be coupled with strong governmental commitment to invest more. The target of 1.7% of public R&D expenditures/GDP in the new Law on Scientific and Technical Activity, although unlikely to be reached soon, should remain valid and support the STI reform agenda.

The report presents the outcome of the Peer Review of the Moldovan R&I system, carried out by the independent panel of PSF experts between November 2015 and July 2016. It explains the rationale supporting each of the key Policy Messages highlighted upfront in the report and discusses the 24 specific recommendations, clustered into thematic areas. Case studies from other countries supplement the narrative by presenting good practice examples that could facilitate the implementation of the recommendations by the Moldovan authorities.

Due to an important gap in the knowledge on the complementarity of the Danube countries' R&I strengths, the S3P Danube team's 2014-15 activities were aimed primarily at identification of the national and regional smart specialisation (S3) or simply R&I (for the non-EU countries) priorities of the Danube countries/regions and identify the common fields of R&I activities that could benefit from coordination and potential matchmaking at the macro-regional level. The purpose of this report is to briefly report about the work done on the project during the 2014-15 period and increase the knowledge on the S3 tools introduced to advance collaboration in RIS3 process, increase cooperation opportunities in R&I areas along the Danube in order to enhance transnational and inter-regional initiatives and to explore possible alignment of the Danube countries'/regions' R&I agendas in the future. Based on original data for 13 countries and 2 regions (DE) in the Danube area, the report explores opportunities of transforming complementary assets into common specialisations. Our analysis revealed 4 main fields for future collaboration: advanced materials and manufacturing (KETs), ICT, sustainable innovations, and health. These very broad priorities provide a starting point for R&I collaboration initiatives and matchmaking in the Danube macro-region.
