The main purpose of this working paper is to explain how work in WP2 has helped refine our understanding of social innovation (SI) in the context of smart specialisation strategies (S3). Building on our earlier reflection documents (Richardson et al. 2014, Marques, et al, 2014) we will discuss if and how social innovation can add value to RIS3 strategies, as a complement to more traditional forms of innovation. We will do this through the prism of European policy on the ageing societal challenge, which is the central focus of our empirical work in Smartspec WP2.
