Innovative characteristics

I3E idea is quite innovative:
  • It will create a transnational network of research and innovation stakeholders in the SEE area overcoming national limitations and creating a transnational / local consensus related to R&D activities associated with leading edge technological sectors. Such a networking is different to national and pan-European similar efforts in the sense that it will be applied in an area of mainly converging regions of low labor cost and high need for transformation.
  • It will bring to the same table the research world with potential financing mechanisms of innovation (public and private) and will empower their collaboration through a Methodology Guideline for Innovation derived through a completely bottom-up approach.
  • The significant critical mass aligned through the common SRA in a concentrated geographical area with many similar problems between regions / countries is a challenge that could be transferable to other areas as well.
