Dear readers,

This issue of the KNOW-HUB newsletter is dedicated to the handbooks created by the consortium.

The handbook on "Challenges for smart regional specialisation as a way to escape from uniformity of innovation policy" looks into the RIS3 challenges which the KNOW-HUB partners consider as very relevant for smart specialisation. Several of these challenges are illustrated in the handbook by highlights from measures of partners' implementation plans and identified good practices. The prioritisation of the challenges is based on the peer review results and deducted SWOT results.

The handbook on "Effective policy mix and instruments for smart specialisation" advises to establish a suitable policy mix for smart specialisation. Besides the RIS3 diversity, the legal, technical and economical circumstances can be very different from one European region to another. Hence, the selection of an effective set of instruments to foster and to enhance innovation is critical for achieving the RIS3 objectives. This handbook aims at supporting regional policy practitioners in implementing their strategies. For that purpose, guidelines are provided by three European experts, who took part in the KNOW-HUB Mutual Learning Circles. The contributions are also illustrated by articles from experts appointed by the different project partners.

The KNOW-HUB team hopes these handbooks can contribute to the design and implementation of your region's smart innovation strategy.
