Project CITYCIRCLE - Circular economy hubs in peripheral urban centres in Central Europe was approved within the 3rd Call of the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE.
CITYCIRCLE is improving innovation capacities of peripheral urban centers of Central Europe by introducing the circular economy system to partner cities. Peripheral cities of Central Europe are marked by lack of innovation cooperation and lack of access to global innovation processes. Circular economy (CE) has been acknowledged as a development concept that should provide sustainable, resource efficient development and a great pool for innovation of new technologies, services, solutions and business models to make our cities and regions better places to live and work.
The main CITYCIRCLE objective is to utilize innovation potential of circular economy in cities through setting-up quadruple-helix circular economy hubs in partner cities and to equip them with the knowledge and tools so they will be able to design circular economy value-chains in their cities. Hubs will implement pilot projects to test developed tools, while transnational value chains will be defined in transnational CE strategy to link local circular economy value chains and reach critical mass.
Project I CARE SMART
Project I-CARE-SMART - INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM FOR SMART ELDERLY CARE was approved within the 3rd Call of the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE.
The project deals with the health and well-being of the elderly in Central Europe. This area is not only a societal challenge but also an opportunity to promote growth. The aim of the project is to support the development of innovative products and services meeting the special needs of the elderly and to support the development of a "silver economy".
I-CARE-SMART partners aim to bring innovation closer to senior citizens and to create a structured collaboration framework for cooperation between all stakeholders in this field. I-CARE-SMART delivers a comprehensive toolset with practical guidance on how to engage seniors and businesses in user-focused co-creation and open innovation. The final goal is to build a transnational open innovation ecosystem for smart elderly care, which allows public authorities, universities, businesses, and the representatives of the elderly to regularly interact and share knowledge and information on the unmet needs of the elderly and on the potential solutions to address them. A total of 13 partners from Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Italy, Czech Republic, Austria, and Germany participate in the project.
Project REWAFI - "Cohesion Policy of the European Union: Read-Watch-Find"
The project REWAFI was financed by the DG for Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission.
Project activities focused on dissemination of information on the Cohesion Policy of the European Union, its history, developments, legislative and policy frameworks, with an emphasis on the results achieved in the EU regions. Dissemination tools were proposed as follows: a book, a video, an infographics, and a pilot test of innovative competition. The proposed content of the book consists of the theoretical, political and legislative framework of the Cohesion Policy of the European Union and practical case studies from the EU regions (from each Member State). The summaries of the book and the most important findings were be processed in the form of an audiovisual tool (video) and infographics. In order to disseminate information on the Cohesion Policy of the European Union, a pilot test of competition was organized to look for evidence of implemented projects implemented under the Cohesion Policy of the European Union in selected regions. The outputs were translated into several official languages of the European Union and Russian language as well.
