North Hungary and Koice Bilateral Regional Innovation Strategy Project

Objective

Strategic objectives: - foster regional and economic cohesion within and between the participating regions and improve their competitiveness by handling innovation as a key economic priority. Direct ~: - develop the absorption capacity of EU funds by impro ving the regional programming and implementing capabilities - strengthen transnational and regional co-operation in the field of R&D and innovation in order to open new areas of transnational activities and to exploit the existing capacities on a more efficient, integrated way - create an enabling environment for existing SMEs and innovative start-ups, spin-offs, investors and R&D centres by determining the most important stimulating and attractive factors - identify strategic key areas of innovatio n support activities and flagship projects - transfer experience and knowledge from the supporting partner region and connect to the EC networks and programmes, the European innovation bloodstream. North Hungary is one of the less-favoured regions of Hunga ry with outstanding R&D potencials but just in the change of its out-of-date industrial structures and infrastructure. It still has very strong economic, social and geographical links with the Koice region in Slovakia. The two regions are facing the s ame challenges in the field of competitiveness and innovation as well and have the intention to cooperate with the aim of accelerated economic development. This project represents a unique opportunity to test and implement the RIS process in a cross bord er environment, which if it succeeds, we are convinced it will, will greatly assist the construction of a European area of research&development where cross border linkages between SMEs and research structures are greatly facilitated. Partners from No rth Hungary, Koice, Castilla y Lon and Basilicata regions form the consortium following the principles of complexity and complementarity, and added-value generating interregional and transnational partnership.
