Programme capitalisation in the sub-theme innovation, research and technology development

First thematic workshop

The INTERREG IVC programme has launched an initial experimentation of programme-level capitalisation with a special focus on the sub-theme innovation, research and technology development. This experiment will analyse the 21 projects approved under the 1st and 2nd calls in this sub-theme.  

The aim of the experimentation is to test a specific methodology in order to maximize the programme’s impact by an optimal exploitation of the knowledge resulting from the projects, to provide in return relevant thematic information to the running projects, to make the programme’s achievements more visible and to be able to draw some policy recommendations at the European level.

The trial is carried out by EURADA (European Association of Development Agencies). In this framework, the first thematic workshop was organised on 25 March in Brussels, where the majority of the 21 involved projects were present together with representatives of the European Commission, URBACT and INTERACT. The aim of the workshop was to open a discussion on regional innovation policies and to start an exchange process among the projects dealing with similar issues. To follow up on the first results, a second thematic workshop will be organised on 19 May in Brussels with the main objective of going deeper in the exchange process on thematic issues and tools between the projects.
