Danube-INCO.NET — Advancing Research and Innovation in the Danube Region


Danube Region Synergy Workshop: Research - Innovation - Knowledge Society

This event is aimed at "Fostering synergies of projects and initiatives in the Danube Macro-region". This workshop was initiated by the Danube-INCO.NET project and the two DTP funded projects ResInfra@DR and Excellence in ReSTI using the opportunity for their kick-off. The focus is particularly on the newly funded DTP projects from the 1st call and aims to provoke an exchange amongst the projects at this early stage. With emphasis on Priority Area 1 “Innovative and Socially Responsible Danube Region” synergies for cooperation among the projects are manifold and a closer look on currently ongoing projects and recently finished activities can help to establish synergies. This supports also the Kick-off of ResInfra@DR and Excellence-in-ReSTI.

The managers and administrators of projects funded under the  Priority 1 “Innovative and Socially Responsible Danube Region”  (SO1.1 “Improve framework conditions of innovation” and SO1.2. “Increase competences for business and social innovation”) will have the unique opportunity to present their main projects’ activities and outcomes and thus create potential for further co-operation within the Interreg DTP programme. A presentation session will be organised in the so-called “PechaKucha” format where all presenters have around 7 minutes to talk about the details of their projects. By keeping presentations fast, concise and focused on the future collaboration opportunities, the session will turn out to be an actual and prompt occasion for networking.

In order to help the participants explore potential new networks as well as synergies for cooperation also in different contents, , two panel discussions will be organised. Relevant policy stakeholders will exchange views and opinions on the methods for facilitating a successful policy-level and programme-level co-operation, identifying “missing” common issues  in the Danube Region and for finally streamlining the topics of future calls towards the interests of project applicants, with a particular focus on less involved countries.

Back to back with the conference, the official kick-off  event of the DTP Interreg projects “ResInfra@DR” and “Excellence-in-ReSTI” will take place. These projects are good examples of broad and innovative project collaborations building new networks and exploring new synergy possibilities in two different areas, i.e. project management and research infrastructures. This conference will thus be also the opportunity to officially introduce these initiatives to the broader audience.
