lease save the date for the Workshop on Investment Vehicles and Financial Instruments supporting Technology Transfer and Innovation, with focus on the Danube Region and the Western Balkans countries, that we are organising on 1 and 2 March 2017 in Belgrade, Serbia.

The registration is open until 24 February 2017 and participants that would require reimbursement need to register before 9 February 2017.  Please note that the places are limited and we will confirm your registration at the beginning of February 2017. Soon, we will also send you a list of suggested hotels.

The objectives of the workshop are to identify existing financial instruments to support innovation and technology transfer activities in the region, explore where the evident gaps exist and explore ways to address currently unanswered demand with synergistic solutions. The workshop also aims to strengthen and cement an emerging community of practice on these issues that should help to maximise impact on regional innovation.

The workshop has been divided into two days:

  • Day 1: EU and International Initiatives
  • Day 2: Regional Ecosystems and Actors with the afternoon divided into four round tables: eco-industry, creative industries, agri-food industry and biotech industry

The workshop’s draft programme is enclosed.

This is one of the first follow-up activities of the Macro-Regional Innovation Week held in Trieste, 26-30 September 2016. The final report of the Innovation Week is available here*and shortly on our website.
