Co - DANUBE Project


Defining a sustainable model of cross-country cooperation - Value Network to support implementation of Open innovation concept in Danube Region represents sustainable solution which enables creation of cross-linkages on quadruple helix basis and improvement of framework conditions for R&D and innovation addressing the noticed needs in Danube region.
Project-related issues to be addressed, considering the identified territorial needs, are in particular long-term cooperation among clusters, R&D centers, the public sector, education and the users (quadruple helix) to foster technology transfer and broaden access to knowledge through set up of "Innovation lab" where representatives can invent together.

DANUBE project will provide a concrete answer to the issues described above, through implementation and development of Value Network Platform, Strategic framework and innovation policies which enable Open innovation and Advanced Manufacturing concept and finally, through thematic pilot actions and study visits which allow knowledge, know-how, experience and technology trans-fer, exchange and creation.

The Value Network represents an opportunity to integrate innovative capacities of all participants through collaboration platform, establishing and improving framework for research and innovation in Danube region.

Improve framework conditions for innovation.

Project main objective

Main objective of the project is the establishment of the Value Network that enables imple-mentation of Open innovation concept based on quadruple helix in cross-cluster environ-ment in the Danube region.

The setup of collaboration platform and networking of regional "Innovation cells" are im-proving conditions and the framework for creation of Danube Innovation lab, where em-ployees, university stuff, students, etc. can work together. Co-created innovations would allow realization of Advanced Manufacturing concept on cross-cluster level comprising energy efficiency and environmental technology.

Value Network as a new way of sustainable trans-national cooperation would improve knowledge transfer and innovation enhancement enabling to overcome challenges rela-ted to the commercialization of innovations.
It has significant impact on technological and non technological areas and learning inter-actions among Danube regions.

DANUBE project will provide a concrete answer to the issues described above, implementing and developing a Value Network, which enables Open innovation environment, based on the Advanced Manufacturing concept.

The Value Network represents an opportunity to integrate innovative capacities of all participants through collaboration platform, establishing and improving framework for research and innovation in Danube region.

 

Project summary

Defining a sustainable model of cross-country cooperation to support implementation of Open inno-vation concept in Danube Region. Such network will be able to balance individual and collective specificities, potential and interests of the regions.

Project-related issues to be addressed are in particular long-term cooperation among clusters, R&D centers, the public sector, education and the users (quadruple helix) to foster technology transfer and broaden access to knowledge through set up of "Innovation lab" where representatives can invent together.
