Danube Energy+ Boost potential of Young Innovators to pioneer change in energy efficiency inside Danube Macro-region

Danube Energy+ tackles the need for change in regional ecosystems to support Young Innovators in transforming their disruptive ideas into ventures. Project´s general objective is to create an enabling environment, which will support Young innovators to pioneer a change in the energy efficiency area by setting up highly innovative startups in the Danube macro-region.

Danube Energy+ ecosystem Package as an innovative learning system for key regional ecosystem actors will be developed by using learning interaction among project partners and inclusive design process involving:

It is uniquely composed of two main elements – (1) best practices, models and experience in identification and motivation of individual Young Innovators in regional ecosystems and their connection to ecosystem actors, and (2) developed Danube Energy+ Tool as a pre-acceleration learning scheme for Young Innovators boosting their competences to start successful ventures.

The learning system will be piloted in 9 countries involving 90 key regional ecosystem actors and 90 Young innovators enabling improvement of regional ecosystem actors´ knowledge. 

To ensure regional and transregional level sustainability and transferability, regional Danube Energy+ Hubs will be created in close cooperation of regional public administrations and Regional Alliance members based on regional Action Plans and Transregional Hubs´ Strategy including the transferability plan to other regions. 

9 project partners and 7 associated strategic partners as key strategic cooperating bodies with regional public administrations will join Danube Energy+ project to create a unique partnership based around core expertises needed: work with Young innovators in regional ecosystems; pre-acceleration programmes development and running; cooperation with regional stakeholders, Hubs creation and operations and regional policy sustainability and support.
