The meeting mainly addressed the theme of participation in European R&I programs, including the access to these programs for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). This issue is perceived as a priority for dialogue between the countries, which were presented by project partners Danube-INCO.NET and stakeholders. The agenda of the workshop included the efforts in Horizon-2020 and other EU programs to improve R&I capacity and cooperation in the Danube Region, including its Ukrainian part.

More than 60 participants from 9 countries including 8 partners of Danube-INCO.NET had the opportunity to assess the situation, particularly in countries that are not EU members, concerning the participation of stakeholders in R&I programs to review their status as countries associated with the Horizon-2020; gain experience to be a participant in the program Horizon-2020 by the Member States and to identify concrete measures to encourage and support participation of the Danube Region in research and innovation programs. The workshop ended with a discussion of role of the Danube-INCO.NET project in fostering of SMEs involvement in HORIZON 2020.
