Danube-INCO.NET - Danube-INCO.NET
DANUBE-INCO.NET is a FP7 funded coordination and support action for the official EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) in the field of research and innovation. Whereas the EUSDR compiles a wide variety of priority areas (ranging from PA 1A âMobility/Waterwaysâ to PA 11 âSecurityâ), DANUBE-INCO.NET focuses mainly on two of them: PA 7 âKnowledge Societyâ and PA 8 âCompetitivenessâ. Within these two priority areas the project picks up exactly these social and entrepreneurial challenges, the regions along the Danube river nowadays mostly face â such as weak economic ties related to research and innovation (R&I) cooperation between these regions, the brain drain as such and the loss of human capital or the lack of innovative approaches to social problems. With the help of joined work forces from all 19 project partners and the Centre for Social Innovation (ZSI) as the project coordinator, DANUBE-INCO.NET seeks to overcome obstacles hindering the social and economic development of the Danube region. The project duration is 36 months, during which different activities are scheduled. The project will be putting in all effort to ensure that all events, publications and policy recommendations related to R&I cooperation in the Danube Region will reach an audience as broad as possible interested and engaged in the future macro-regional development of the Danube Region.
