What are RTOs?
Research and Technology Organisations (RTOs) have developed in many European countries at both national
and regional levels to assist in the support of local industry, often around specific industrial technologies or
sectors.

 

With a core responsibility for technological upgrading they play a key role in regional and national innovation
systems.

 

RTOs tend to be public or private non-profit organisations that provide a range of research, development and

technology services, principally to business and governments. Although the definition of Research and Technology

Organisations (RTOs) vary, reflecting RTOs institutional statutes, governance, business models, funding models

and resources, the public missions and industrial support objectives of RTOs seem to be aligned.

 

The European Association for RTOs (EARTO) defines RTOs as "regional and national actors whose core mission is

to harness science and technology in the service of innovation or public bodies and industry, to improve the quality

of life and build economic competitiveness in Europe. RTOs are generally non-profit organisations and their revenues

are re-employed to fund new innovation cycles."

 

Although not so frequently identified in studies of the innovation ecosystem as universities, they are significant elements

in innovation systems at regional and national level.

 

It has been estimated that RTOs across Europe have revenues of €18.5-23 billion with a wider economic impact of up

to €40 billion.

 

How do RTOs affect S3 strategies?
RTOs have been identified as key agents in regional innovation systems, and particularly as key elements of regional

innovation strategies in many parts of Europe over the past 20-30 years.

 

Even earlier though RTOs were established as national initiatives to promote innovation, in some cases with some form

of regional delivery.

 

The RTOs play a multiple role in smart specialisation. First of all they contribute to entrepreneurial discovery process,

secondly they play an important role in connecting actors, and thirdly they build research and technology capacities

and contribute to technology transfer.

 

There are three key contributions that RTOs make to the development and implementation of S3, and each of these

are shown in Figure 1. 

 

Many RTOs have considerable experience in analysing firms’ needs and technology forecasting and provide policy advice

services to their regional governments. Such expertise may be used by regional governments to help identify opportunities

and assist in developing entrepreneurial discovery processes, especially where governments have limited experience of

collaboration with industry.

 

What is the rationale?

RTOs offer a core set of skills and competences needed by regions to successfully develop smart specialisation strategies.

These skills sit in a number of areas from support for policymaking to longer term opportunity recognition and direct

support to firms within the S3 clusters. Specific opportunities for RTOs to engage with regions in S3 plans have been

identified to include support for the entrepreneurial discovery process, support for internationalisation and the

development of cluster groupings.

 

Three key roles:

1. Many RTOs have considerable experience in analysing firms’ needs and technology forecasting to provide policy advice

    services to their regional governments. Such expertise may be used by regional governments to identify opportunities
    and assist in developing entrepreneurial discovery processes, especially where governments have limited experience of
    collaboration with industry.


2. A particular strength of RTOs is their involvement in international networks, and whilst this brings potential challenges
    
where governments fund them to support domestic businesses, the RTO may be in an ideal position to identify cross-
    border linkages and to source knowledge from other regions. The RTO can help bring a more global perspective,
    especially where the RTO has considerable international experience.

 

3. Many RTOs are central to particular clusters where they have a long history of supporting innovation. As such RTOs
    may be central to particular smart specialisation initiatives and play a central role in the coordination of support for
    groups of firms.

 

What policies can influence RTOs?
RTOs are present in many, but by no means all regions in Europe. Though, most EU countries have some form of industrially

oriented research organisations, and these are likely to be considered as important elements in the national and regional

infrastructure for innovation strategies.


RTOs need to be supported by public policies including:

>> Public agencies involved in the development of smart specialisation strategies should seek to better involve RTOs
      in the design and implementation of RIS3s.
>> RIS3s may support interventions to encourage collaboration between RTOs and SMEs for knowledge exchange
      and innovation support. Many regions have encouraged the development of RTOs and their links with SMEs in
      recent years through projects to support collaborative research projects or through knowledge exchange projects.
>> Many regions plan to use their RIS3 to help develop competitive clusters, drawing on existing strengths. Often
      these will include the RTOs as they have previously been developed to support significant local industries within
      the region. The precise role of the RTO in a cluster initiative may vary depending on the needs of the cluster and
      the strengths of the RTO, but will usually involve technical support to SMEs, collective training activities & networking.
