In recent years, over 120 Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3) have been developed, at regional and national level, across the EU.
The Smart Stories provide a direct account from managing authorities on the ways in which they implement their Smart Specialisation Strategies. They reflect how managing authorities have used the S3 concept to develop their own innovation-driven economic transformation agendas at national and regional level.
Download the booklet "Smart Stories, Implementing Smart Specialisation across Europe" (2016), a collection of over 30 such first-hand experiences.
Notes: These stories are based on information provided by national and regional authorities. The images in the stories are for illustrative purposes and do not always reflect the S3 process itself.
