Among the first events organised under the Presidency, the Ministry of Research and Innovation sucessfully held the "Second Policy Dialogue and EUSDR PAs' Cross-fertilisation Workshop - Competitiveness and Innovation for Long-lasting Transnational Collaboration in the Danube Region's Bio-economy field". The event was supported by the Made in Danube project in order to offer EUSDR PAs the opportunity to meet and share respective actions and plans with reference to the specific field of bioeconomy so as to create future synergies an mutual collaborations.  The event also contributed 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.

Goals of the workshop:

  • 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 training shall foster policy dialogue for future opportunities of collaboration among the priority areas with particular focus on bio-economy.
  • Further continue and complement the debate started during the previous workshop - organized in Zagreb Croatia on 26th September 2018 - in frame of the Made in Danube project.
  • 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.
