ELISE has mutual scope with Thematic Pole 2 (TP2) of ITNERREG Danube and thus decided to join forces with 3 projects in order to leverage options for capitalization and dissemination. The first common workshop was held on the 3rd of July in Bratislava, where options for cooperation were discussed and future plans were mare.

TP2 RDI framework support is coordinated by the Centre for Social Innovation in Vienna and EUSDR PA7. Its main aim is to contribute to the mission of the DTP and the S.O.1.1 by creating links between the local, regional, national, macro-regional and European levels while looking to improve the framework conditions for research and innovation in the Danube Macro region. Particular focus is put on policy dialog and development of new tools and instruments as well as on knowledge transfer, capacity building and awareness raising within the quadruple helix. The two main thematic fields are related to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and Research infrastructures (RI).
