Lead Partner: Pannon European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation
INTER VENTURES promotes the internationalization of SMEs in EU border regions, thus contributing to their growth and increased competitiveness. INTER VENTURES brings together partners from five European border regions, representing various stages of evolution of SME ecosystems, from occasional cross-border cooperation through more structured networking to international clusterization. During the project implementation Partners will intensely share their experiences and learn jointly via Thematic Study Visits, Interregional Meetings combining training with discussions. Regional stakeholders will be intensively involved in the process through RSG Meetings and Webinars including training, brainstorm sessions and assisted workshops.   Lessons learnt will be adapted to regional conditions explored through targeted surveys of regional SMEs. As a result, tailor-made regional Action Plans will be elaborated that can lead to the desired improvement of the five selected regional ERDF programmes for the enhanced internationalisation of SMEs.

Matching conservation priorities with regional development policies while paying special attention to ERDF fund availability is a critical challenge to deploy robust and effective biodiversity conservation strategies at European and regional levels. However, the development of conservation priorities requires the adequate mobilisation of consistent, relevant and structured biodiversity information aimed at feeding and eventually guiding decision-making. Better prioritization of biodiversity conservation efforts using evidence-based methods BID-REX aims to enhance natural value preservation through improved regional development policies by creating/reinforcing the link between relevant biodiversity data and conservation decision-making processes. More specifically, it aims to facilitate the use of biodiversity information and increase the impact of ERDF allocation in the preservation of the European natural heritage by providing decision-making processes with appropriate biodiversity information.

With the objective of the transition to a low carbon economy, some countries and regions in Europe are developing energy and land use policies in separate ways by different administrations. To improve the energy sector in balance with the natural resource a challenge is to work on bridging those conflicting views and policies.   BIO4ECO aims to improve regional and national policy processes and policy implementation and delivery addressing the transition to a low carbon economy, in relation with renewable energy use, energy efficiency of building, and forest and agricultural biomass. The main expected outcomes are: increase the share of renewable energy in the overall energy mix (17 M€ of ERDF funding benefited by the project)take into account bioenergy and bioeconomy in all planning and decision-makinglay the groundwork for future integrated strategies and programmes for regional bioeconomy and carbon neutrality.   BIO4ECO will organise interregional and local learning process by thematic workshops, study visits and local stakeholder groups meetings, to achieve a greater integration among the lessons learned. These are going to be the cornerstone of the learning process. Topics that will be worked in these events are the following: Role of forests within regional and national low carbon and bioeconomy strategies and programmesFirst-hand experience on integral solutions for bioenergy policies and strategiesThe Energy-Foof-Water land use nexus: possible equilibrium for the low-carbon transitionHow to increase social acceptance of bioenergy policies?Priorization of bioenergy production at different geographical scales BIO4ECO videos of the thematic workshop in Paris “Prioritization of bioenergy production at different geographical scales” Bio4Eco Interreg Europe - workshop&study visits Paris Bio4Eco - interview Aiga Grasmane, Latvian Forest Owners Association BIO4Eco - interview de Florin Andronescu, Alba Local Energy Agency - Romania

Cities are places where environmental performance management is of utmost importance: in the majority of them there is a concentration of unsustainable behaviours in terms of waste management, energy efficiency or mobility. Heritage Cities share this fact with other cities but, in addition, the preservation of heritage and the management of significant amounts of waste, due to high tourist and economic activity levels, make the observance of waste-related strategies by authorities, private actors and households of specific importance.  Heritage cities share different characteristics:  Historical artistic heritage, which leads to permanent flows of tourists, remarkable economic activity and significant production of related wasteMostly ancient cities with winding city centres where ordinary waste management methods and equipment hardly workNeed to observe aesthetic criteria for interventions in urban protected spaces, waste- field interventions includedVisibility to the rest of the world Improving local and regional policies for sustainable waste management in Heritage Cities. Even though Heritage Cities have probably developed interesting solutions and policies in many fields, running waste-related services is complicated in such scenarios. In such a framework, the aim of INTHERWASTE is European Heritage Cities to exchange experiences and policies for efficient and sustainable management of municipal waste and  in order to contribute  through mutual capacity-building, policy learning and drafting action plans - to the environmental performance of waste management in EU cities.The capacity of the staff of involved authorities to design and implement policies and measures in the waste field and governance in the same field are expected to be improved, too. Solutions and policies proved feasible in INTHERWASTE are believed to be transferable to most Heritage Cities as well as to non-heritage (less-demanding contexts) cities in the EU. The visibility of Heritage Cities worldwide can help reduplicate experiences identified in many other cities.   One project, Four steps Learning and exchanging best practices and policiesIntegrating this knowledge into concrete action plansMonitoring the action plans implemented in each citySharing the solutions and policies with other European cities Watch our video to discover more about INTHERWASTE & waste management in Heritage cities

What is HoCare? Aging of the population is challenge for all EU regions. But it means at the same time also an opportunity for growth and jobs as there is created great potential to deliver innovative solution for home care. Common challenge in all HoCare regions is unlocked potential to delivery innovation it this field. In total, 3 International Thematic Workshops will be organized within HoCare project each covering one thematic sub-objective of the HoCare project. Watch video from 1st International Thematic Workshop (Funchal, 27 January 2017): Watch video from 2nd International Thematic Workshop (Budapest, 27 and 28 March 2017): Watch video from 3rd International Thematic Workshop (Slovenia, 7 and 8 June 2017): Quadruple Helix Approach Objective of HoCare project is to boost delivery of home care innovative solutions in regional innovation chains by strenghtening of cooperation of actors in regional innovation system using Quadruple-helix approach. Quadruple-helix is an innovation cooperation model or innovation environment in which users, businesses, research actors/universities and public authorities cooperate in order to produce innovations - government, industry, academia and civil participants work together to co-create the future and drive structural changes far beyond the scope of what any one organization or person could do alone. This model encompasses also user-oriented innovation models to take full advantage of ideas' cross-fertilisation leading to experimentation and prototyping in real world setting. Policy Change HoCare aims for improvement of relevant Structural Funds thanks to the international policy learning. These improvements are planned to be at strategical level (by governance improvement) as well as practical ones (by support of high quality projects). As result HoCare promises to improve management structures (governance) of 7 Funds. This improvements at strategical levels will be complemented at practical policy level by generation of 10 practical projects funded from tackled Funds. Expected results and Outcomes These results will be achieved mainly thanks to SMART outputs delivered and thanks to 4-dimensional international policy learning process. Initial content for it will be created by partners during Regional analysis, further investigated during 3 International Thematic Workshops. It will formulate 30 transferable Good practices and enable formulation of high-level outputs: 3x HoCare Policy Thematic reports and 3x HoCare Policy Transfer Reports. Collected knowledge will enable project to contribute to EU external policy learning by organizing 2 international and 8 National High-Level Policy Learning events. 800 participants will increase their proffesional capacities thanks to these events.
