The event is organised with the support of the Croatian Ministry of Economy, Entrepreneurship and Crafts (PA8 co-coordinator) and the Ministry of Regional Development and EU funds and intends to be an opportunity for cross-fertilization and fruitful dialogue between the following Danube Strategy Priority Areas:

  • PA2 (Sustainable Energy)
  • PA4 (Water Quality)          
  • PA6 (Bio Diversity and Landscapes)     
  • PA7 (Knowledge Society)
  • PA8 (Competitiveness of Enterprises)  
  • PA9 (People and Skills).    

The workshop shall also contribute to the debate on key challenges, needs and requirements for developing a bio-economy concept for the region while also contributing to the creation of a common understanding of the “Innovation and Technology Transfer priorities” and thus supporting long-lasting transnational collaboration in bio-economy in the Danube Region (The workshop will indeed continue the debate started at Danube-INCO.NET cross-fertilisation meeting held in 2017 in Vukovar).
 

Goals of the workshop:

  1. To allow representatives of  EUSDR Priority Areas (Pas) as well as public authorities to meet and exchange information on updates and implementation of own planned actions so as to find out possible synergies as well as further cooperation approaches within the broader EUSDR framework as far as the bio-economy sector is concerned. In other words, the workshop shall foster policy dialogue for future opportunities of collaboration among the priority areas with particular focus on bio-economy.
  2. To follow up the Danube-INCO.NET cross fertilization workshop held on 25/04/2017 as well as other project results to further contribute to the discussion on key challenges, needs and requirements for developing a bioeconomy concept for the region while also contributing to the creation of a common understanding of the “Innovation and Technology Transfer priorities” for bio-economy.
  3. To provide a mix of high-quality information about funding, organisations and inspirational initiatives and success stories so as to stimulate synergies between actors and experts.
     

Expected impact:

  • Open multi-stakeholders policy dialogue and knowledge exchange for future opportunities of collaboration among priority areas
  • Inputs for recommendations on improvement of framework conditions for innovation and technology transfer in the Bio-economy field
  • Synergies between actors and experts for developing new projects and initiatives aiming to contribute to the transition of the Danube Region to bioeconomy.
