Smart specialisation in regional innovation policy is striving for excellence in specific sectors or market niches [1]. The identification of a limited set of key enabling technologies and their thorough application is indispensable for the market success. Does this mean at the same time that regional innovation strategies for smart specialisation should be limited to these top technologies with their related markets/sectors and should neglect the bottom of the innovation pyramid?

Smart specialisation is essentially based on a process of entrepreneurial discovery. As the University is one of the main actors in research and innovation, it’s interesting to raise some questions related to their role in RIS3, and specifically how do they participate in the entrepreneurial process of discovery.
