6 years ago  By  Iuliana Velniciuc     No comments

Danube-INCO.NET invites you to fill in a questionnaire in order to better understand barriers and obstacles in relation to international cooperation in Research, Technological Development and Innovation (RTDI), as well as pitfalls including the socio-cultural aspects. The goal is to eventually propose recommendations for the policy making system.

Within the WP4 – Analytical Evidence on Research and Innovation in the Danube Region, the Danube-INCO.NET team has recently finalised a survey for identifying  those social, political and economic bottlenecks as to S&T cooperation in the Danube region and to put forward corresponding policy recommendations.

The questionnaire is mainly addressed to the wider science, research & innovation community from all Danube Region countries:

- EU MS and regions upstream of the Danube: Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Germany – in particular Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria;

- EU MS and regions downstream of the Danube: Bulgaria, Romania;

- Enlargement countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia;

- Neighbourhood countries: Moldova and Ukraine (in particular oblast Odessa, Zakarpatska, Ivano-Frankiwsk and Czernowitz)

For comparative reasons, the Danube-INCO.NET team is more than happy to receive also answers from researchers and innovators from other countries/regions. In particular, we invite researchers from the other Western Balkan countries to join the initiative!

Please fill out the questionnaire at the following link – answering to the questions will take about 10 minutes:
