The project addresses the major territorial challenge of the Danube area – the unbalanced distribution of innovation performances between Western part of the region with a high level of development and the Eastern part that is lagging behind, most of the countries belonging to the Modest Innovators group with more than 17% of enterprises producing only 3% of added value. This is due to different framework conditions and wide range of policies governing the R&I sector. Public policies in the area should be better coordinated while investment needs to be smarter and better focused. This is why cluster cooperation policies based on the smart specialization concept are at the core of delivering the EUSDR strategy, as they help take the geographical and thematic context into account in order to boost growth.
To leverage the innovation-driven entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Danube area by developing smart and coordinated cluster policies in the context of RIS3, to enhance innovation management knowledge and skills and foster transnational cluster cooperation in Agro-Food sector.
- SO1 - Develop cluster policies and implementing instruments - Implementation of 5 regional pilot initiatives in 4 cross cutting themes;
- SO2 - Enhance innovation management knowledge - Development of 2 innovation assessment tools and delivering 3 training sessions;
- SO3 - Foster cooperation for clusters active on Agro-Food - Development of Danube S3 Cluster Strategy& Programe and providing 3 training sessions and 2 brokerage events.
