Lead Partner: European Regions Network for the Application of Communications Technology
With the DIGITAL REGIONS project, eight European regions are working together to address a common challenge: how to best adapt innovation policies to support the manufacturing sector as a result of the emergence of Industry 4.0 (I4.0). The main objective of the DIGITAL REGIONS partnership is to, by 2022, achieve a 15% increase of the number of SMEs from manufacturing sector cooperating with other innovation actors in the participant regions to implement I4.0 solutions as a result of improved innovation policies. “All partner regions have manufacturing as a smart specialisation priority. DIGITAL REGIONS partnership present the right mix of organisations regarding innovation value-chain, including public managing authorities, universities, I4.0 Centres of competence and business development intermediaries”, explains Jose Manuel San Emeterio, Project Leader.  Project partners will cooperate together and will propose measures to facilitate improved I4.0 policy cooperation between regions, increased SMEs participation and availability of I4.0 skills.  DIGITAL REGIONS aims to benefit all stakeholders in each region’s innovation ecosystem, i.e. innovation policy makers, SMEs that use I4.0 solutions, suppliers of I4.0 services, universities and innovation centres.   Are you interested in the project?

"After the creation and growth of a business, transfer is the third crucial phase in its life cycle." - Commissioners Tajani and Hahn, Foreword of Guidebook No. 3 - Facilitating Transfer of Business 2012.  STOB regions project addresses the challenges of this third phase of business transfer in 9 EU regions. There has been a strong focus on start-ups across Europe, however, of equal importance is ensuring the survival of existing businesses. Safeguarding SMEs, arguably, has a higher impact on jobs and growth. This is reinforced by the fact that the success rate of transferred businesses is higher than that of start-ups. The STOB regions partnership brings a range of different experiences and levels of expertise, including regional authorities and business support institutions. The interregional approach explores and examines the challenges faced by succession and seek to find new or improved methods to support business transfers.

Embark with us on our journey to the Life Cycle Approach! LCA4Regions is expected to contribute to the more effective implementation of environmental policy instruments by the application of Life Cycle Methodologies. Currently, many individual policies are implemented in isolation of others. Thus, the project is focused on expanding the use of life cycle methods as a holistic approach when conceiving and implementing public policies related to environmental protection and resource efficiency. Life cycle expertise resides mainly in the business sector while public authorities are much less familiar with the techniques and their functioning. However, the full success of policy implementation depends on similar expertise also in governmental authorities. The outcomes of improved public policy implementation are greater concordance with stated sustainability objectives, fewer unwanted side-effects and greater transparency in the compromises and offsets that need to be made to move ahead on sustainable economic targets. Each project region has its own characteristics, methods of design and implementation of policies. Nevertheless, all of them face a common challenge: the adoption of a more efficient use of natural resources to reduce the non-desirable secondary effects (spill-overs) that generate negative economic and environmental impacts Expected results: 7 Actions Plans to improve 7 policy instruments funded by the ERDF in the following regions: Navarre (ES), Satakunta (FI), Baixo Alentejo (PT), Lombardy (IT), Lodzkie (PT), Kaunas (LT), and Zahodna (SI). This is achieved through, inter alia, intense local stakeholder group involvement, 7 transnational learning journeys, exchanges of experiences, study cases and the compilation of good practices. These activities are intended to clarify the success factors and barriers for the application of life-cycle management approaches for policy implementation. Action plans will contribute to: 1) improve policy instruments introducing the LCA in all steps of policy cycle management 2) Enlarge the circle of end-users that will benefit from making conscious decisions on resource efficiency and investments using the LCA

Data has become a key asset for the food industry which is leading to innovations in technology and the development of new tools and skills. However, the large volume and diverse nature of food value chains data and actors call for specific integration and management procedures to make the most of new economic opportunities based on information, data and cognitive technologies and promote innovation-driven growth. Join efforts to face new challenges For this purpose, 7 regions have decided to join efforts to face new challenges by developing an exchange of experience approach and work plan which allow them to create synergies and opportunities by identifying good practice implemented in other territories. Partners will work in close cooperation with stakeholders to interconnect regional innovation ecosystems. Best practices for each region will be integrated in their action plans in order to improve the targeted policy instruments governance or to implement projects that will contribute to achieving the above-mentioned goal.  Outputs and results • 7 action plans to improve policy instruments selected by project partners according to their relevance in terms of better exploiting ICT’s potential and deliver innovation to food industry and hence, smart progress and growth. • Support capacity-building at all levels, that is, staff, organisational and regional but also beyond the partnership considering most project partners are members of the S3P Agri-food on Traceabiliy and Big Data. • Reinforcing cooperation between research and business sectors and therefore, to improve the economic exploitation of R&D results. • Delivering strategic guidelines for new programming period.

The waterway regions involved in SWARE all share unique natural and cultural heritage: protected areas with rich biodiversity and a bunch of enticing historic cities and buildings connected to water. These amenities make them more and more attractive for leisure activities resulting in an ever growing number of visitors (30-50% increase in the past 10 years) which causes tensions with heritage conservation aspects. All SWARE partners recognize that the socio-economic future of their regions is fundamentally depending on finding the synergies between preserving the cultural and natural values for the next generations and at the same time "opening their gates" with a controlled visitor management. By demonstrating the economic value that a „green” leisure industry can bring to a region, it can build strong public and political support both for heritage protection and sustainable valorisation thereof. What SWARE strives for is achieving a better balance between protection and sustainable exploitation of the valuable natural and cultural resources through improving the development programmes and policies of the partner regions, based on the transfer of good practices of other participating regions. Partners share the common bottleneck of fragmented governance structures without proper cooperation forms, therefore SWARE will stimulate the establishment of new participatory governance schemes having a much better potential to implement efficient policies contributing to the sustainable regional development. As an overall result, decision-makers, public and private players, as well as inhabitants will gain a better knowledge and commitment towards protecting and sustainably “using” their environmental and cultural assets.

We believe that a metropolitan region of tomorrow should provide its residents with a safe, functional and resilient environment. Low-carbon transportation and mobility are vital components of such smart urban areas. However, transportation in metropolitan regions today generates congestion and vast greenhouse gas emissions. This imposes enormous challenges upon local and regional authorities in providing healthy living conditions for inhabitants and a supportive environment for businesses.   SMART-MR finds solutions and helps local and regional authorities improve transport policies.  The key project outputs include a guide on sustainable measures for achieving low-carbon and resilient transportation in metropolitan regions, selected good practice descriptions, and policy recommendations. Through these outputs, as well as dissemination events (such as political meetings, the final conference, and regional stakeholder meetings), SMART-MR contributes to Europe 2020 goals, Cohesion Policy, and the Interreg Europe Program.    Smarter together 7 workshops are organised by the project partners in order to find solutions by sharing experiences in transport and mobility planning. For each workshop, the partners will issue an in-depth analysis, describe good practices and organise a study visit. Practical experiences will be presented and discussed, and policy recommendations developed. The partner metropolitan regions will also prepare and implement action plans to improve the implementation of regional transport policies and instruments by: creating sustainable mobility planspromoting low-carbon network-oriented urban development relying on public transportation and development of nodes including stakeholders in project activities and in the design and implementation of the action plans. SMART-MR brings together 10 project partners from 8 metropolitan regions (Oslo, Göteborg, Helsinki, Budapest, Ljubljana, Rome, Porto and Barcelona).
