The main objective of this project is to enhance the capacity of CENTRU and Lusatia regions and of its stakeholders in planning and using the local and regional renewable resources as a solution for a sustainable economic development, in the context of the new knowledge-based economy, by promoting the innovation and strong connections between research and economic environment as a regional policy. The applicant Consortium is an association of two research clusters from Brandenburg-Germany and CENTRU region of Romania, representing local and regional authorities, research institutes and companies with activities in the field of renewable energies. The project will develop five work packages targeting the following objectives: - Bring the benefits of research close to the business environment by developing strong links between research institutions, local authorities and companies - Strengthening the regional stakeholders research and innovation capacity and technological transfer in the benefit of the local economic development - To ensure inclusion of regional research and innovation policy in other regional plans and programmes (i.e. Regional Development Plan, Regional Action Plan for Environment, etc). - Develop a common framework for know-how transfer and co-operation among partners in the research field in order to assure a better absorption of national and EU funds for innovation. Regional clusters will be set up in both regions in the field of renewable energies and activities for knowledge transfer from the German partners to the CENTRU region stakeholders will be organized. Both partner clusters will carry out a set of analysis in order to identify the regional potentials in renewable energies and strategies in this field will be elaborated together with a joint action plan.
