On behalf of the Excellence-in-ReSTI project consortium, we are pleased to inform you that the Strategy and Roadmap document has been finalized. The document provides a summary of current challenges to the management of science, technology and innovation projects within nine countries in the Danube macro-region.
The document presents a list of supporting measures to improve and strengthen national actors’ capacity to design, develop, manage, communicate and disseminate research and innovation projects, both nationally and in a cross-border context. This list was composed on the basis of a widespread data collection and analysis process with the involvement of all project partners with the final aim of providing a relevant Strategy and Roadmap recommending steps for policy action with the intention to provide strategic direction for the improvement of the institutional framework conditions for research and innovation.
In order to validate the results obtained, the project intends to collect and discuss the opinion of the broadest segment of relevant stakeholder group, i.e. regional and national policy-makers dealing with research and innovation, or policy influencers whose professional opinion tend to be considered by policy-makers in one form or another.
