The current RIS3 for Värmland builds on a process of strengthening relationships between Region Värmland and Karlstad University that began developing following an OECD review in 2005/2006. In the period leading up to the development of the RIS3 (2010-2014) this process was formalised through a Collaboration Agreement between the two parties. The main tangible product of this agreement was an initiative to create 10 new professorships within the University in areas that were deemed relevant by the Region and the 4 cluster organisations mentioned above.

The new strategic documents (both the Regional Development Strategy for the Lodzkie Region 2020 and the Regional Innovation Strategy for the Lodzkie Region 2030) updated and drafted by the regional authorities have been highly praised and recommended as presenting an innovative and territorial approach to development. This was possible because of wide consultations and close cooperation between various parties involved in drafting the documents.

Such participation results in R&D cooperation between the other members of such clusters (mainly the enterprises) and the University units.
