What are S3 Actors?

S3 actors play a crucial role in regional and national smart specialisation strategies. They specifically:

  • participate in entrepreneurial discovery process,
  • contribute to the development of S3 strategies and their implementation,
  • provide advice on how to match regional development needs with R&I and vice versa,
  • support particular technologies, industries or clusters,
  • provide an adequate innovation ecosystem,
  • form the quadruple helix of innovation actors,
  • are involved in international networks and thus they add the needed external and outward-looking dimension to smart specialisation strategies.
