Dear readers,

In this 15th issue of the KNOW-HUB newsletter we highlight DG Research and Innovation's report on the role of clusters in Smart Specialisation Strategies, which compares similarities and differences between RIS3 and cluster approaches.

The OECD report "Commercialising Public Research: New Trends and Strategies" looks closely at the rapid evolution in which universities and public research institutions engage with business to take science from the lab to the market, and provides a comprehensive review of government and institutional level policies aimed at enhancing the transfer, exploitation and commercialisation of public research results. The report also compares performance in OECD countries, universities and public research institutions using both traditional and new indicators.

The KNOW-HUB team hopes you enjoy reading this issue and wishes you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
