S3 PlatformS3 Cooperation
This Danube smart specialisation (S3) workshop was the event of the "Scientific Support to the Danube Strategy" initiative and is co-organised by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy. The event was designed around some of the main smart specialisation priorities in the Danube region and on the results of the online survey on examples of successful inter-regional and trans-national R&I partnerships implementing past and current innovation strategies (for smart specialisation) and aimed at identifying concrete initiatives for trans-national co-operation linked to common smart specialisation priorities and interests in the Danube region.
The purposes of the event - to share some examples of successful and sustainable transnational R&I partnerships, to give a frame for exploring cooperation opportunities within the selected RIS3 priority areas in the Danube region, and to identify those opportunities that would have potential to develop into the new joint initiatives or collaborative commitments to be further evolved into the projects which could benefit from INTERREG Danube Transnational Programme 2014-2020, Horizon 2020 or other financial sources available for the Danube region.
The workshop had focus on 4 main thematic priorities: ICT, Health, Energy, Sustainable Innovations.
