Project summary We aim to improve SMEs uptake of Environmentally Sustainable Innovations (ESIs) into their business. For that the regions need to work further on how to develop models such as the cooperative business support model, where the focus should be on possible measures for business development and how companies can evolve towards an Environmentally Driven Export Market (EDEM) while working together with the whole chain of support and in close interaction with the SMEs themselves. Herein lays a need to create an international network of contacts concerning how public and private bodies can work on these issues in order to improve policy delivery for an Environmentally Driven Business Development of SMEs. EDBD implies an instrumental meaning; the purpose is to develop the businesses by developing the environmental dimension in their use of technology, in their business dealings, and their markets, i.e. the environmental aspect is a tool to develop business. As such, EDBD does not only include Clean Technologies, but also product development in other fields of business that utilize an environmentally friendly approach. The above will be accomplished thru exchange of experiences and practices, benchmarking and analysis of challenges and needs. €1,556,571.00 from 1 Apr 2016 to 31 Mar 2021 Topic Research and innovation Main Objetives Improve the implementation of regional development policies and programmes, in particular programmes for Growth and Jobs and, where relevant, ETC programmes, that support the delivery of innovation by actors in regional chains in areas of "smart specialisation" and innovative opportunity. Develop, improve and adapt regional policies that support methods for increased international commercialization of SMEs´ Environmentally  sustainable innovations (ESIs) and environmentally friendly products (EFPs) better support mechanism that help mature the region´s businesses will in turn lead to improved conditions for export of EFPs within and outside of the EU and lead to increased competitiveness.  Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Danish National programme for ERDF 2014-2020 Operational programme Growth and employment 2014-2020: Priority Axis 1. Development and innovation of research, technology : Thematic objective 1.Strengthening research, technological development and innovation: Investment priority 1.2.: Specific objective (SO) No. 1.2.1.: To promote investments of private sector in R&D Indicative actions to be supported: support for research according to the needs of the private sector, for development and implementation in production of new products, services, technologies and processes, including innovation vouchers for SME, ensuring technology transfer services within the framework of a single technology transfer system, including protection of newly created intellectual property, preparation and submission of licenses and certificates, preparing of research results with commercial potential for licensing, creating opportunities for networking of education and research institutions, students and entrepreneurs for development, testing and implementation in the market of innovative interdisciplinary products and services. Approximately 10% of the Danish companies have collaboration with knowledge institutions, but the majority of the 10% refers to companies in the capital region whereas companies in Region Zealand have much less collaboration resulting in a lower product development rate, lower investment in R&D and lower overall innovation rate.

The main objective of Axis 1 is meeting the needs for achieving the objectives Europe 2020 RTDI by increasing the level of investment on research to GDP for 2020 proposed by the RIS3 plan (internationalization, regional structures for innovation support, incubators, direct co-financing etc). Main characteristics & priority of the specific RAP (outcome of the project), include activities to EDBD that will focus on Green Energy Buildings (public and private) and to some manufacturing sectors related with energy products or services. The policy instrument should be improved (as other instruments also) with the regional structural funds of the period 2014-2020 as research and innovation were of low priority in the regional policy agenda until 2014, due to the lack of authority in this domain of policy and the weak capacity of the regional administration. For the first time Greek Regions and managing authorities are responsible for the policies instruments they want to improve in RTDI.   Which partners are working on this?

Vidzeme Planning Region Uitvoeringsverordening (Implementing regulations) Economic board Utrecht This instrument is set up to stimulate sustainable economic growth in the Utrecht region with a focus on 1)Green economy, 2) smart society and 3) healthy society. All the funds for economic development (€ 17 million) have been allocated for this instrument. The regional government of Utrecht is responsible for regional policies that help support SMEs innovate and accelerate towards a more sustainable future The regional government decided to place funds for SME support in a separate body (Economic Board Utrecht) where in triple helix setting funds can be more efficiently directed towards the SMEs. The board employs several instruments in order to help support the transition. The ‘Uitvoeringsverordening Economic Board Utrecht’ provides the legal framework for all the instruments employed. The Uitvoeringsverordening can thus be seen as an umbrella instrument under which more specific instruments can be developed. This approach has been successful because we are able to identify an obstacle and make and specific instrument to solve it. Instruments in the Uitvoeringsverordening that support SMEs are: • feasibility studies • innovation advisory projects • R&D-related cooperative projects • financial support (subsides) However, there is always room for improvement and we are searching for policies that are able to support those companies that are most likely to be successful and help speed up our agenda.   Which partners are working on this?
