IaaS4DR | Interreg Danube Transnational Programme

The IaaS4DR project, is designed to revolutionize innovation support and technology transfer in the Danube region, particularly targeting industrial rural and remote areas with low innovation capacities. The project's main objective is to deliver locally, durably improved, and integrated innovation support services. This will be achieved by enhancing the capabilities of business support organizations, innovation intermediaries, and technology transfer institutions. 

Key objectives include:

    • Capacity Building: Increasing innovation support competence across regions.
    • Collaboration Models: Enhancing integration among regional innovation service providers.
    • Transnational Expertise: Facilitating access and the use of external, advanced innovation support services on demand.

The project aims to transform traditional, linear, and top-down approaches into dynamic, integrated services that significantly exceed existing capabilities by leveraging limited local resources with broader transnational support. This strategic shift is expected to foster a more competitive and smarter Danube Region, well-equipped to face the future challenges of industrial transition and innovation.
