This paper aims to bridge the information asymmetry between the communities of S3 practitioners and evaluators by presenting relevant information to both sides on various aspects of evaluation design and the concept of smart specialisation, respectively.

Place-Based Innovation Ecosystems Bučar, Maja; Rissola, Gabriel.
This research publication is part of a series on Place-based innovation ecosystems that was born in 2017 from a fruitful collaboration between the Committee of the Regions (CoR) and DG Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC) on promoting the importance of evidence-based policy development for regional and urban policy makers. In particular, this case study focuses on the catalyser role played by the Technology Park Ljubljana and other intermediary bridging organisations for the cohesion and development of a collaborative innovation ecosystem that supports the nurturing of new innovative companies – notably start-ups, but also scale-ups and spin-offs – in Ljubljana (Slovenia) and beyond.
Squaring the circle: lessons from the role-playing exercises on S3 regional and multi-level governance
MARINELLI, Elisabetta; TOLIAS, Yannis; BERTAMINO, Federica; METAXAS, Michalis; GRISORIO, Jennifer
The paper explores both policy and methodological questions related to S3 governance. As for the former, the paper investigates the main bottlenecks inhibiting the effectiveness of multi-stakeholder policy development, identifying the administrative and technical needs of those in charge of S3 governance. As for the latter, the paper provides an opportunity to reflect on role-playing as a tool for policy analysis in the context of Cohesion policy.
Synergies between Interreg Europe and Smart Specialisation: A methodological proposal to enhance policy learning
CORTIJO ARELLANO Marta, ESPARZA MASANA Ricard, FERNDANDEZ SIRERA Tatiana, MARINELLI Elisabetta, ARREGUI PABOLLET Eskarne.
The Interreg Europe (IE) programme supports projects in which interregional consortia develop a set of peer-learning activities, followed by action-plans, aimed at improving given policy interventions. The programme gives priority to projects focussed on instruments in ERDF Operational Programmes that have a direct link to S3. Despite this potential, little attention has so far been paid on exploring systematically the complementarities between Interreg and S3 to maximise policy learning. This paper aims at bridging this gap by framing the relationship between IE and S3 in the broader debate about synergies between different EU funds and stressing the importance of monitoring such complementarities. The present work argues that the Interreg Europe programme can provide a space for experimentation, learning and generation of good practices in S3 that can serve broader purposes. This argument is put forward by describing and analysing an exercise conducted by the Catalan government, which targeted synergies between IE and S3.
S3 Working Paper Series No. 15 /201 8 Fabrizio Guzzo, Carlo Gianelle, Elisabetta Marinelli
This paper illustrates the results of a survey on the Smart Specialisation experience across European regions and countries. Respondents recommend to maintain the current policy framework for the future, while introducing new elements to improve strategies’ efficacy and make Smart Specialisation more responsive to the specific needs of different territories.
