Danube S3 Cluster - Danube S3 Cluster Strategy has been finalised!


Transnational coordinated cluster strategy provides recommendations for actions regarding the development of a sustainable, resource efficient agro-food sector in the Danube region.

The Danube S3 Cluster project aims to foster transnational cluster cooperation in the agro-Food sector and leverage the innovation-driven entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Danube area by developing smart and coordinated cluster policies in the context of Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialization (RIS3).

To this end, a transnational coordinated cluster strategy with recommendations for policy interventions was developed to support the development of a sustainable, resource efficient agro-food sector in the Danube region and strengthen the role and market efficiency of clusters.

The strategy provides recommendations for actions, structured along five intervention areas (mapping and visibility; internationalization and cooperation; cluster policy and supporting schemes; monitoring benchmarking and accreditation; and cluster management support programmes). For each intervention area, several recommendations are made.

The Danube S3 Cluster strategy will be tested in five pilot initiatives – in Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Romania, Serbia and Slovakia – in three cross-cutting themes (healthy food, business models for circular economy and open innovation) that are interconnected and able to generate new innovative project ideas and feeding into the European Union Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR).
