The rising population and associated demand for renewable biological resources make Bioeconomy a key element for smart and green growth in Europe and the Danube Region. Successful development of innovative services and new products in this field highly depend on an efficient collaboration between research organizations and regional companies.
For this reason Made in Danube will try to improve the conditions for this cooperation by developing open innovation tools which will match the needs of companies with the expertise of research organizations; By integrating three existing regional initiatives:
1.Smart and innovative precision farming (Nitra, Slovakia)
2.Competence Center in Wood Sector (Vukovar, Croatia)
3. Biofuel (Novi Sad, Serbia)
Made in Danube will further implement the developed tools and build 15 sustainable bioeconomy-based innovation partnerships involving 40 regional companies. This way Made in Danube will not only contribute to the competitiveness of SMEs in the South-Eastern Danube Region but also generate significant change for the entire area by supporting regional Smart Specialisation Strategies.
Involving 15 project partners and 3 associated strategic partners from 10 Danube Region countries, Made in Danube will generate significant changes throughout the entire Danube Region in order to improve framework conditions for innovation and support the implementation of regional Smart Specialisation Strategies.
