The document also highlights the need for universities to contribute to innovation, building on the key factors identified by EUA for successful Smart Specialisation Strategies. The present messages and recommendations are an outcome of the "Universities as Regional Lead Institutions” workshop held under the auspices of the Austrian Presidency in Graz. They are complementary to the conclusions of the 9th Week of Innovative Regions in Europe (WIRE), which were endorsed by the audience of the workshop.
