The Challenge
… emerging economies will increase x5
… 19 of the 30 largest economies will be from the emerging world.
… marked decline in the economic and political might of many small population,
ageing, rich economies in Europe
Innovation capabilities slowing down
Regional Innovation Scoreboard indicates slowing down of innovation capabilities
throughout Europe
„Where Europe is most and least innovative”, in 6 maps (Washington Post, Aug 2016); Regional Innovation Scoreboard 2016.
ESIF harshly critizised – gap is increasing!
• Study indicates that larger ESIF invest correlates with slower development!
Breidenbach et al., „EU Structural Funds and Regional Income Convergence – A sobering experience“, (RUHR, 2016).
Europe is in danger of loosing relevance
Delivery of tangible innovation impact
RDI investment is restricted  innovation
efficiency is key
Unique situation <-> general requirements
Future challenges require efficient regional innovation systems, which need to fulfill:
Enduring

Regional share of HEI competiveness impact
Enduring interaction networks are key to regional
growth
HEI are a proven stakeholder for regional innovation
in many perspectives
It can be quantified and most impact is local
Largest Factor of HEI influence is human talent
Conclusions:
RIS3 Means New Options for Universities
In Europe's journey for transformation, we all – every city and every region, as
well as every university – have to be pioneers, to explore new ways for the
future of our societies. The concept of Smart Specialisation opens up new
opportunities also for universities, above all:
1. Universities should act as the knowledge base in defining and
implementing regional RIS3 strategies;
2. Universities can and should focus more on societal challenges
and as a result, broadening the innovation base for tackling these
challenges;
3. Universities need to strengthen their role as natural platforms
for entrepreneurial discovery;
4. Universities have a crucial role in creating regional innovation
ecosystems to be based on the co-creation culture and the
network of innovation hubs;
5. Universities can be key actors in creating the new culture for
multi-financing and project portfolio management (i.e.
orchestration).

Madrid Workshop (2015)
• Workshop on “Universities promoting regional innovation across
Europe”
• Convened jointly by Crue/CPU and EUA and kindly hosted by the
Autonomous University of Madrid (24 November 2015)
• Six case studies from regions in Spain, France, Portugal and
Germany
• Discussion on the thematic areas of:
o The role of universities in the design and implementation of Smart
Specialisation (RIS3)
o Coordination of regional, national and European programmes
o Regional perspectives on Smart Specialisation
Outcomes RIS3 Activities 2015
• Seven Main Recommendations :
“Universities are central to regional innovation across Europe”
• RIS3 Workshop Report:
http://www.eua.be/Libraries/publications-homepage-list/eua-workshop-report-
quot-universities-promoting-regional-innovation-across-europe-quot.pdf?sfvrsn=6
“Universities are central to regional innovation across Europe”
Main messages
• Effective Smart Specialisation is an ongoing and evolving process: political
support is needed to promote strong co-operation among relevant stakeholders in
regional innovation.
• There are already many good examples of effective Smart Specialisation in
both established and more recent accession countries. Specific showcase initiatives
should be set up with a view to sharing good practice in research and innovation
activities for regional development across Europe.
• Decision-making processes in the area of Smart Specialisation and regional
innovation should be evidence-based and transparent.
• Regions should use an appropriate range of assessment approaches and
multidimensional measures that are able to capture diverse effects in the local
innovation ecosystem.
• The synergetic use of funds can only be achieved with higher levels of strategic
and practical alignment of different funding instruments. Further harmonisation
and simplification of regulations would be highly beneficial.
• There is recognition that co-creation of knowledge through active engagement
with external stakeholders should be valued on a par with traditional research
activities.
• Investing in even stronger links between education and research will support
the development of human talent which is the fundamental driver of innovation.

Warsaw Workshop (2016)
• Workshop on “Universities as motors of innovation in Central
and Eastern Europe”
• Convened jointly by CRASP and EUA and kindly hosted by the
University of Warsaw (13-14 October 2016)
• Nine case studies from regions in Austria, Czech Republic,
Estonia, Ireland, Poland, Slovakia and Switzerland; 2 EU
representatives and Polish authorities
• Discussion on the specific role of universities in regional
innovation in Central and Eastern Europe:
o Specific Challenges
o Strategic participation of universities
o Cooperation across Europe
“Universities as motors of innovation in Central and
Eastern Europe”
Main messages (preliminary version)
• Human talent is the fundament of regional innovation. Universities are
therefore instrumental in creating and sustaining innovation.
• Open inclusive systems are crucial to enable innovation. Enduring political
engagement and competitive processes need to be ensured at the local level.
• Innovation results from research excellence and is not an independent
dimension. Opportunities and constraints of the local context need to be taken
into account (‘qualified excellence’).
• Synergy needs to be addressed systematically – cooperative use of different
funds remains completely aleatory given the multilevel governance structures.
Re-shaping of cohesion fund use in Europe could be a pilot for such efforts.
• There is need to raise public awareness on the added-value of European
programmes, in order to ensure continued public support.
• Social and cultural innovation aspects needs to be taken increasingly in focus
• An appropriate balance of fundamental and applied research is crucial to
ensure sustained innovation capabilities
Synergies between Structural Funds and
Horizon 2020
Policy input to mid-term review of Horizon
2020
EUA member consultation on H2020
• Developed in preparation for the mid-term review of
H2020: to be launched by EC during autumn 2016
• Goal: to gather experience of universities with H2020
implementation (administrative, financial, strategic
aspects)
• Survey launched in January 2016 – deadline March
2016
Topic: Synergies between H2020 and ESIF
The European Commission promotes the establishment of synergies between ESIF and
Horizon 2020 in order to maximise impact and efficiency of public EU funding. One target
area for a synergetic approach.
• Are you aware of the concept
of smart specialisation and the
RIS3?
• If so, has your institution been
involved in the definition
and/or implementation of
RIS3?
80%
20%
Yes No
54%
46%
Yes No
Number of respondents: 142/153 Number of respondents: 110/113
• RIS3 are a promising area for synergies between ESIF
and Horizon 2020, and, thus, for bolstering regional,
national and European R&I ecosystems. However,
their actual success will depend on more alignment,
more coherence and more simplification of
funding regulations, requirements and timelines that
in turn will enable and encourage more cooperation
among authorities and stakeholders from the public
and private sector.
Main message in the area of RIS3 from the EUA
member consultation on Horizon 2020
Discussion
Time for your questions!
Thank you for your attention ……
… what is your regional strategy?
The EUA Webinar Series will continue in
2017.

  • 19. Enduring interaction networks are key to regional growth HEI are a proven stakeholder for regional innovation in many perspectives It can be quantified and most impact is local Largest Factor of HEI influence is human talent
  • 20. Conclusions: RIS3 Means New Options for Universities In Europe's journey for transformation, we all – every city and every region, as well as every university – have to be pioneers, to explore new ways for the future of our societies. The concept of Smart Specialisation opens up new opportunities also for universities, above all: 1. Universities should act as the knowledge base in defining and implementing regional RIS3 strategies; 2. Universities can and should focus more on societal challenges and as a result, broadening the innovation base for tackling these challenges; 3. Universities need to strengthen their role as natural platforms for entrepreneurial discovery; 4. Universities have a crucial role in creating regional innovation ecosystems to be based on the co-creation culture and the network of innovation hubs; 5. Universities can be key actors in creating the new culture for multi-financing and project portfolio management (i.e. orchestration). markku.markkula@cor.europa.eu

  • 28. Recognition of universities as a key partner in regional development Need to build on the specific profile and opportunities of European regions Active promotion, publication and evaluation of RIS3 to motivate stakeholder participation Coordinate innovation programmes, reducing cross-programme complexity alignment of activity portfolios and stakeholder timelines to RIS3 Use funding synergetically for R&D infrastructure, human resources, cooperation and deployment platforms Develop incentives relating to regional priorities; R&D careers outside academia; heterogeneous collaboration platforms Ensure the sustainability of Smart Specialisation Strategies beyond structural funding timeframe
  • 29. Expert Group on Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation (RIS3) Madrid Workshop (2015) • Workshop on “Universities promoting regional innovation across Europe” • Convened jointly by Crue/CPU and EUA and kindly hosted by the Autonomous University of Madrid (24 November 2015) • Six case studies from regions in Spain, France, Portugal and Germany • Discussion on the thematic areas of: o The role of universities in the design and implementation of Smart Specialisation (RIS3) o Coordination of regional, national and European programmes o Regional perspectives on Smart Specialisation
  • 30. Outcomes RIS3 Activities 2015 • Seven Main Recommendations : “Universities are central to regional innovation across Europe” • RIS3 Workshop Report: http://www.eua.be/Libraries/publications-homepage-list/eua-workshop-report- quot-universities-promoting-regional-innovation-across-europe-quot.pdf?sfvrsn=6
  • 31. “Universities are central to regional innovation across Europe” Main messages • Effective Smart Specialisation is an ongoing and evolving process: political support is needed to promote strong co-operation among relevant stakeholders in regional innovation. • There are already many good examples of effective Smart Specialisation in both established and more recent accession countries. Specific showcase initiatives should be set up with a view to sharing good practice in research and innovation activities for regional development across Europe. • Decision-making processes in the area of Smart Specialisation and regional innovation should be evidence-based and transparent. • Regions should use an appropriate range of assessment approaches and multidimensional measures that are able to capture diverse effects in the local innovation ecosystem. • The synergetic use of funds can only be achieved with higher levels of strategic and practical alignment of different funding instruments. Further harmonisation and simplification of regulations would be highly beneficial. • There is recognition that co-creation of knowledge through active engagement with external stakeholders should be valued on a par with traditional research activities. • Investing in even stronger links between education and research will support the development of human talent which is the fundamental driver of innovation.
  • 32. Expert Group on Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation (RIS3) Warsaw Workshop (2016) • Workshop on “Universities as motors of innovation in Central and Eastern Europe” • Convened jointly by CRASP and EUA and kindly hosted by the University of Warsaw (13-14 October 2016) • Nine case studies from regions in Austria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Ireland, Poland, Slovakia and Switzerland; 2 EU representatives and Polish authorities • Discussion on the specific role of universities in regional innovation in Central and Eastern Europe: o Specific Challenges o Strategic participation of universities o Cooperation across Europe
  • 33. “Universities as motors of innovation in Central and Eastern Europe” Main messages (preliminary version) • Human talent is the fundament of regional innovation. Universities are therefore instrumental in creating and sustaining innovation. • Open inclusive systems are crucial to enable innovation. Enduring political engagement and competitive processes need to be ensured at the local level. • Innovation results from research excellence and is not an independent dimension. Opportunities and constraints of the local context need to be taken into account (‘qualified excellence’). • Synergy needs to be addressed systematically – cooperative use of different funds remains completely aleatory given the multilevel governance structures. Re-shaping of cohesion fund use in Europe could be a pilot for such efforts. • There is need to raise public awareness on the added-value of European programmes, in order to ensure continued public support. • Social and cultural innovation aspects needs to be taken increasingly in focus • An appropriate balance of fundamental and applied research is crucial to ensure sustained innovation capabilities
  • 34. Synergies between Structural Funds and Horizon 2020 Policy input to mid-term review of Horizon 2020
  • 35. EUA member consultation on H2020 • Developed in preparation for the mid-term review of H2020: to be launched by EC during autumn 2016 • Goal: to gather experience of universities with H2020 implementation (administrative, financial, strategic aspects) • Survey launched in January 2016 – deadline March 2016
  • 36. Topic: Synergies between H2020 and ESIF The European Commission promotes the establishment of synergies between ESIF and Horizon 2020 in order to maximise impact and efficiency of public EU funding. One target area for a synergetic approach. • Are you aware of the concept of smart specialisation and the RIS3? • If so, has your institution been involved in the definition and/or implementation of RIS3? 80% 20% Yes No 54% 46% Yes No Number of respondents: 142/153 Number of respondents: 110/113
  • 37. • RIS3 are a promising area for synergies between ESIF and Horizon 2020, and, thus, for bolstering regional, national and European R&I ecosystems. However, their actual success will depend on more alignment, more coherence and more simplification of funding regulations, requirements and timelines that in turn will enable and encourage more cooperation among authorities and stakeholders from the public and private sector. Main message in the area of RIS3 from the EUA member consultation on Horizon 2020
  • 39. Thank you for your attention …… … what is your regional strategy?
  • 40. The EUA Webinar Series will continue in 2017. Please check Twitter: https://twitter.com/euatweets Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/european-university-association Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EuropeanUniversityAssociation for updates.
