N2 - Smart Specialisation (S3) is a place-based industrial strategy that forms the major component of the European Union’s 2020 Innovation policy (RIS3). Lagging regions, however, lack the technological capabilities and networks to fully participate and benefit from RIS3. Extra-regional collaboration offers lagging regions opportunities for technological upgrading to overcome this deficit. Using patent data for EU NUTS2 regions, we find extra-regional collaboration raises innovation in lagging regions, although collaborations based on technological relatedness might be less effective, compared with advanced regions. This has implications for the design of policies to engender extra-regional collaboration and their alignment with RIS3 initiatives.
