What’s the future for the Catalan innovation system? (Part 2)

Catalonia’s new smart specialization strategy

The RIS3CAT, as every smart specialization strategy now in Europe, is reproducing the wording of the European documents promoting this novel approach. The problem is that this new model, called Quadruple Helix, doesn't seem to influence too much to our local policy makers that continue to believe  in an innovation system driven by the old actors of the Triple Helix: companies, research centers and public administrations.

Nevertheless some radical change is happening in the innovation systems during the last years with the coming of the Internet. An open digital infrastructure is allowing the opening of the innovation systems.
