Smart Specialisation Hub 

The Government has recently announced its intention to establish a Smart Specialisation Advisory Hub (S3AH). This is intended to support effective design, delivery and alignment of EU, national and local Research and Innovation (R&I) policies (especially those that are ESIF co-funded).

The Government has asked the National Centre for Universities and Business (NCUB) to progress the design and development of the hub - and possibly to host its establishment. Find out more.
