  • 14. • Smart Specialisation – Bottom up: it is a discovery process • in coordination with industry • Based on existing assets (skills, research center, exisiting business) – Integrated: it requires coordination of all policies • Investment, infractructure, skills, R&D – Open: linkages are important in todays' world • Link across sectors (including services) • Link across regions, global links
