DanubePeerChains Integrated capacity building and training programme for DANUBE area labour and business support organisations, local industry and entrepreneurs to enter innovative transnational value CHAINS as PEER-level collaboration partners

Digital transformation disrupts traditional value chains! This particularly concerns Danube region countries with their diversified regional economies and strong position in typical production sectors, which are still focused on unidirectional client-supplier relations. At the same time, there is an emerging need for experts in innovative fields as engineering, ICT, automation and robotics, which need to be upskilled for the new value chains.
The MAIN OBJECTIVE of DanubePeerChains, therefore, is to empower Labour market Support Organizations (LSO) and Business Support Organizations (BSO) together with their target groups and further local high-potentials (entrepreneurs, SME employees, digitalisation specialists) in a joint capacity building and training approach to upskill to high-qualified jobs in the Danube region and to gain sustainable recognition as PEER-level collaboration partners in innovative transnational value chains.
The partnership comprises 14 partners from 9 Danube countries (6 ERDF, 3 IPA) and 5 ASPs (+ENI) in a well-balanced mix of business and labour support organizations, tech.transfer centers, vocational/educational institutions and policy actors. Knowledge will be CAPITALIZED from DanuBioValNet, SmartFactoryHub, DigiTrans (all DTP), InnoPeer AVM (Interreg CE) and S3-4AlpClusters (Alpine Space) and UPGRADED with VALUE CHAIN aspects 1) to identify high-potential cooperation fields in digitalized value chains for project target sectors (metal industry, machine building, engineering, electro industry, electronics/robotics, ICT), 2) to introduce this innovative approach in collaborative capacity building measures for LSOs/BSOs, and 3) to upgrade existing technological and business model oriented trainings by integrating the value chain perspective and adapting them for the qualification demand of Danube area target groups.Regional Action Plans and Strategic Recommendations provide contributions to EUSDR PA8, PA9 and national S3 strategies.
