Project summary The TraCS3 project addresses challenges on regional innovation infrastructures. Regional innovation infrastructures and innovation capacities are the backbone of dynamic regional innovation ecosystems. How to improve the support for regional innovation infrastructure?How to get better employment for the innovation infrastructure?Can there be more involvement in innovation value chains?TraCS3 also looks for solutions for regions to increase their innovation capacities.What is needed to build innovation and research excellence in regions?How to enable interregional collaboration?What do regions need to open up their innovation potential to the world?SMEs rely on research and innovation institutionsTo innovate, industry partly relies on research and innovation institutions. This is especially true for SMEs. The capacities of research and innovation institutions provide access to the necessary technology infrastructures. This is needed for upscaling, prototyping and validation of new solutions before an enterprise can enter the market. Gaps and opportunitiesThe project partners will look for ways to stimulate the development and utilisation of innovation infrastructures. What are the gaps and opportunities? TraCS3 aims to support further collaboration between existing infrastructures to increase innovation capacities. More innovation through interregional collaborationThe project partners seek to strengthen regional innovation potential through the interregional collaboration. They will explore opportunities to establish and improve financial schemes for use of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) outside the area of the programme. €1,698,874.00 from 1 Jun 2018 to 31 May 2023 Topic Research and innovation Project objective TraCS3 The project objective is to improve regional policies in support of innovation infrastructure in S3 key priority sectors:strong innovation potentialaddress societal challengesenhance interregional cooperation This will be leading to more cooperation within and between emerging and expanding innovation ecosystems.

The Operational Programme ERDF 2014-2020, North Netherlands investment priority 1.b, TO 1 .strengthening research, technological development and innovation The Policy instrument addressed is OP Priority axe 1: Innovation and within this priority the specific objective “Fostering knowledge development” and the following activity of this objective: “Knowledge development and research by businesses working in partnership with knowledge institutions or other businesses”. OP for the North Netherlands (NN) and the policy instrument addressed is directly related to the RIS3 and is used for RIS3 implementation. NN RIS3 aims at broadening and connecting (international) value chains, by creating ‘cross overs’ between sectors/clusters and technologies. It supports knowledge institutes, clusters and SME’s to invest in new (international) chains, products and markets. The Policy instrument addresses this issue by: fostering collaboration, between businesses and knowledge institutes; improving the access to knowledge, and improving the effectiveness and accessibility of support measures. The knowledge available within the region is insufficient to come to solutions, so crossborder collaboration plays a key role in this respect. New partnerships are envisaged to be developed, and existing partnerships are encouraged to be extended. The policy instrument aims to promote business investment in R&I, developing links and synergies between enterprises, research and development centres and the HES, in promoting investment in product/service development, technology transfer, networking, technological and applied research, pilot lines, etc.   Which partners are working on this? Hanze University of Applied Sciences West Deal, Strategic Plan for a Sustainable Economic Transformation of West Flanders The strategic plan ‘West Deal’, describing the smart Specialisation strategy for West Flanders, is focussing on cluster development and support in a triple helix construction, involving all necessary stakeholders. It is a dynamic partnerships between suppliers, SME’s, industry, centres of academic excellence, higher education and local government, creating a broad basis for sustainable economic development and cooperation. It is theWest-Flemish approach to New Industrial Policy. West Deal concentrates on five specific clusters that pose excellent growth potential: - food - new materials ( textiles and plastics ) - mechatronics & machinery - health care economy - blue energy. West Deal is also focussing on creating the optimal framework conditions in support of this innovative and dynamic development : Modern and up-to date supportive infrastructure, development of sustainable logistic gateways and corridors, skill development , state of the art research facilities, incubators, support for innovative start-ups, etc. The international dimension of the policy instrument ‘West Deal’ can be further fine-tuned and elaborated by creating European cooperation between public authorities, agencies, reasearch centres and clusters from Europe’s most dynamic regions. Creating learning experiences and possibillities in sharing reasearch facilities and optimising infrastructure. A joint European cooperation and planning is currently not within the West Flemisch scope.     Which partners are working on this? Province of West-Flanders Operational Programme for the European Union Funds’ Investments in 2014-2020 Priority axis 1.Strengthening Research and Development and Innovation Policy instrument addressed targets to enhance research and innovation (R&I) infrastructure and capacities to develop R&I excellence, and promoting centres of competence through promoting more active use of the existing and new research, development and innovation infrastructure. OP aims to develop public and private RDI infrastructure, which is directly related to the strengthening of the economic competitiveness, and its closer linkage with the regional and European research infrastructure network. The aim of RDI financing is to achieve a more efficient exploitation of the existing RDI infrastructure for enhancing the economic competitiveness, also a more active involvement of the Lithuanian research potential into European and international networks of research institutions and researchers. OP seeks promoting business investment in R&I, developing links and synergies between enterprises, research and development centres and the higher education sector, in particular promoting investment in product and service development, technology transfer, networking, etc. Investments into RDI are long-term and very risky, therefore the state plays a major role in promoting them: only a small share of business entities is capable of investing into this area independently. Efforts will be made to increase the accessibility and quality of innovation support services for business and higher education institutions. Which partners are working on this? Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology (MITA) The Operational Programme for the European Union Funds‘ Investments in 2014 – 2020, Priority Axis 1 – Strengthening Research and Development and Innovation General target of this activity is to mobilise and trigger innovation and research projects in the federal state (Bundesland) of Bremen. Research, development and innovation are considered key factors for economic growth and competitiveness of enterprises in the region. Therefore, more than 50% of the EFRE-funding will be spent for this priority. Within this framework a particular attention is given to the installation and upgrading of application oriented research infrastructures in the S3 key priority areas, especially in those parts of the regional economic structure, which are endued with particular strenghts, e.g. aircraft- and spacetechnologies or wind energy. It is intended to support constructional expansion of buildings, but also advanced equipment and technologies, research groups and special innovation related services. According to national studies, application oriented public and semi-public research- and innovation-institutions represent an extraordinary strength of the federal state (Bundesland) of Bremen. To make full use of these capacities for sustainable economic and social development it is intended to (1.) intensify the collabo-ration in international and interregional networks ; to (2.) enhance the cooperation in regional cluster struc-tures, especially in S3 key priority sectors; to (3.) pay higher attention to the involvement of SMEs in research and innovation structures. Which partners are working on this? University of Bremen, Institute Labour and Economy (iaw) The policy instrument addressed is Regional Operational Programme (ROP) 2014-2020 in Romania Priority concerned: Priority Axis 1 – Promoting technologic transfer, IP 1b for promoting investment in R&D, developing links and synergies between businesses, research and development centres and higher education, in particular promoting investment in product and service development, technology transfer, social innovation, eco-innovation and public service applications, stimulating demand, networking and groups of open innovation through smart specialization, as well as supporting technological and applied research activities, pilot lines, early product validation actions, advanced and first production capacities In Romania, R&D&I support is extremely low in relation to 2020 targets (3% - EU and 2% - RO), being largely inefficient, with a fragmented research and innovation system, insufficiently demand-driven priorities, international connections weakness, lack of a critical mass concerning the quality of research results which do not turn into applied research and innovative applications, poor links between education, research and the business environment. It is therefore necessary to create new such innovation and technology transfer infrastructures as well as to further develop the existing ones so that they can operate in an optim way as intermediaries between innovation demand based on the needs identified on the market and diversified supply of research results, adapted to the demand.   Which partners are working on this? North-East Regional Development Agency Finland’s structural funds program, Priority axis 2 Producing and using the latest knowledge and skills (ERDF) Specific objective 4.1 Developing research, competence and innovation clusters that draw from regional strengths As a result of specific objective 4.1 measures, new innovation clusters drawing from new regional strengths and smart specialisation will be established. The goal is that by 2020 R&D investments have increased and the range of innovations has widened in line with regional strategies of smart specialisation. This growth has been possible because the OP promotes business investment in R&I, develops links and synergies between enterprises, research and development centres and the higher education sector, in particular promoting investment in product and service development, technology transfer, social innovation, eco-innovation, public service applications, demand stimulation, networking, clusters and open innovation through smart specialization. Furthermore, new practices and tools for the development of open innovation platforms, both campus- and urban area-based, will be created. In order to be more competitive European companies and clusters must develop Europe-wide value chains. The Finnish OP for Structural Funds recognizes weakly this international and interregional aspect. This is why we need Interreg Europe projects to develop these European value chains. Whereas in S34Growth Interreg Europe project the focus is on enhancing interregional utilization of structural funds in a Tampere region S3 spearhead of renewing industry, in TRACS3 project, the focus is on S3 spearheads of smart city and bio and health branches. Which partners are working on this? The Baltic Institute of Finland The Operational Program: Castilla-La Mancha ERDF 2014-20 OP (T01 Research and Innovation) ERDF OP for Castilla-La Mancha 2014-2020, derived from the RIS3, and through Priority 1, is essential to build the RDI Regional System in Castilla-La Mancha (CLM), the main pillar for knowledge creation and innovations, and tthe foundation to increase the region competitiveness and its economic development. It is closely related with (and built according to) the CLM RIS3. OP recognizes the essential role of innovation infrastructure and innovation capacities to build the Regional RDI System. The industry in Castilla-La Mancha is scarce, as it is the “industry-industry” networking and collaboration culture, which is mostly reduced to simple business associations with commercial purposes. Priority 1, Area 1b includes: promotion of relationships and development of synergies between companies & research centers; technology transfer; networking; clusters and open innovation. Specific objective: Promotion of companies’ leadership in research and innovation activities; creation and consolidation of innovative companies. Measures: Public-private partnership on innovation and knowledge transfer; Cooperation program including all the actor of the regional science and technology system. Specific objective: Knowledge transfer and cooperation between companies and research centers. Measures: Creation of cooperation networks between the actors of the regional science, technology and innovation system; Improvement of coordination and collaboration between companies and research centers       Which partners are working on this?

Project summary Cultural and natural heritage is very important at all levels, local, regional, national and European, consisting of several dimensions that can lead to resource efficiency, through deployment for sustainable and responsible tourism development with innovative character. Policies for heritage applications to eco-cultural tourism need to be further developed, implemented and monitored, through interregional cooperation. The common challenges that are jointly tackled in the CHRISTA project are:natural & Cultural Heritage assets are valuable treasures, sometimes in danger and in need of proper conservation, preservation and/or restoration,these assets can be deployed for the purposes of sustainable and responsible tourism development, namely cultural tourism, heritage tourism and ecotourism,the tourism potential of these assets may facilitate the preservation and restoration efforts, if performed in a sustainable and responsible way, innovation can contribute greatly towards improving cultural and natural heritage policies for sustainable and responsible tourism development.The overall objective is to protect and preserve natural and cultural heritage assets and deploy them for the development and promotion of innovative, sustainable and responsible tourism strategies, including intangible and industrial heritage, through interpretation and digitisation, with capitalisation of good practices, policy learning, policy implementation and capacity building. Expected changes are in terms of improved policy instruments in destination regions, advances in relevant policy implementation, upgrading of cultural and natural assets and innovative applications. Main outputs are Action Plans, with implementation and monitoring of improved policy instruments in 9 regions, communication and dissemination tools for policy learning and capacity building, contribution to EU policies and EU2020 targets. The beneficiaries are public authorities and their stakeholders. €1,920,199.00 from 1 Apr 2016 to 30 Sep 2020 Topic Environment and resource efficiency Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Regional Operational Programme of Veneto Region. Investment Priority 3b – Action 3.3.4. (Does not apply to the 5th call). The regional Operation Programme (ROP) pursues the aim of a Sustainable Regional Development through the safeguard of natural and cultural heritage, particularly in the islands of Venetian Lagoon. Within the ROP, Tourism related actions are integrated within OT3 (thematic objective). Axis 3 Objectives: 3a) Promoting entrepreneurship, in particular by facilitating the economic exploitation of new ideas and fostering the creation of new firms. Focus on Action 3.3.4, pursuing the preservation and protection of cultural heritage especially by involving all stakeholders, including SMEs operating in sustainable services, as a tool to protect and revitalize the natural environment of the islands and cultural heritage. Main features: To maintain long-term leadership in the tourism sector and to become more competitive, the Veneto Region must meet the challenge to make more sustainable the impact of its tourism industry on lands and on local populations, through: - gradually shifting tourist flows from the destinations with greater burden while involving smaller destinations; - encouraging new tourism models that maintain the interest for a destination throughout the year, able to actively involve the population and the local economy. The Veneto Region could qualify its tourism offer, also promoting the great cultural and natural heritage. The focus is on a target area: the Venetian islands where to implement the policy instrument adopting innovative tourist models. Which partners are working on this? Veneto Region Regional Operational Programme of Region of Central Macedonia Operational Programme according to the objective ‘INVESTMENT FOR GROWTH AND JOBS" (Regional Operational Programme of Central Macedonia) Thematic Objective 6 deals with Environmental protection and efficient use of resources. Based on regional identified needs a priority is the protection and promotion of cultural heritage, emphasizing archaeological sites, historical and religious monuments and the improvement of museums. It is important to mention that the cultural heritage of the region is under pressure from illegal construction and urban sprawl in peri-urban areas, wooded areas and tourist areas (eg mountain and coastal), with attendant land-use conflicts and environmental impacts. For these reasons the need of proper conservation, preservation and/or restoration is more than necessary. There is a focus on environmental aspects and pressures that affect the cultural heritage. However, there is a need to improve the intangible heritage, through interpretation facilities and innovation / digitization activities towards the enhancement of policies for sustainable and responsible tourism. All cultural assets can be deployed for the purposes of sustainable and responsible tourism, namely cultural tourism, heritage tourism and ecotourism. Which partners are working on this? Regional Development Fund of Central Macedonia on behalf of the Region of Central Macedonia Cultural Plan for Region Västra Götaland 2016-2018. (Does not apply to the 5th call). The Cultural Plan for region Västra Götaland is a development plan regulated by Swedish Law dealing with regional development on culture. The Cultural Plan describes the main priorities in the area of culture and cultural heritage in the region over a three year period. Industrial heritage is one of the prioritised areas to be further developed in Västra Götaland over the years to come. In a historical perspective Västra Götaland is a heavy industrial region with car factories, shipyards, textile industry, biochemical industry and a wide range of small scale production. It is the importance of understanding how the change of the industrial society affects the development of society in general and the life of individuals. Participatory methods involving the inhabitants is a vital ingredient in the process of understanding the past, the present and to draw conclusions about the future of Västra Götaland as an industrial region. Tourism is an important tool for regional development. But tourism can also be an area of cultural development. Tourism is a way of participation and could be more of incentive based development for the cultural sector. The cultural sector can provide interesting content for destination development as well. International cooperation and exchange are important parts of the Culture Plan. The plan also relates to European and national goals for culture and development. Which partners are working on this? Region Västra Götaland ERDF Operational Programme. Autonomous Regional Government of Andalusia. Thematic Objective 6. Preserving and protecting environment and promoting resource efficiency The specific Objective 6 is specified through strategic lines of actions (ELA). Three of them are of interest to be improved: - “Actions for the protection, development and promotion of cultural heritage” - “Actions for the protection, development and promotion of natural areas, in particular those with a tourist interest” - “Investment for the development of actions that minimise the threats to the conservation of natural areas and biodiversity, with especial interest to the Natura 2000 Network”. The Regional Operational Programme of Andalusia is still a draft, so it can easily be improved. Which partners are working on this? County Council of Granada Tourism Development Strategy for Vidzeme region The main objectives of the Strategy are: to promote development of tourism sector by increasing economical indicators, to develop & promote tourism-friendly environment by encouraging residents patriotism and hospitality taking into account preservation and develoment of nature and cultural heritage, as well as building Vidzeme region as recognisable and popular travel destination between countries of Baltic Sea. It includes 3 main priorities: market research, regional marketing and development of high quality tourism. Having regard to the current development at regional level, the focus must be set on sustainability, viz: - re-assessment and gathering of the new information on the current regional situation since the previous document, - elaboration of the the critical deficiencies that have not improved since the previous document has been adopted  - in-depth analysis of the current regional situation, by taking into account the changes at regional level - development of new measures and suggestions that need to be adopted at regional level, by taking into account the needs of the stakeholders. Improvements in present Strategy must be characterized by exact measures and indicators that need to be improved, following a methodological pattern from in-depth analysis to priority recommendations and follow-up of the results at the regional level. Which partners are working on this? Vidzeme Tourism Association Pafos Regional Strategic Tourism Development Plan As part of the repositioning strategy of Cyprus, Pafos had decided to prepare their own vision for tourism development and to create a separate product (regional brand) utilizing and investing in the available merits. This resulted in the 'Pafos Regional Strategic Tourism Development Plan' launched in 2008 with a 5-year implementation horizon initially. The Strategy places particular emphasis on cultural & heritage tourism. Cultural Tourism ranks as first priority category, considered one of the fast growing segments of the global tourism industry, with huge benefits. Cultural Tourism is associated with current expectations of travellers on learning a different way of life and understanding of another culture, is among the special forms of tourism which are designed to target specific segments and is considered a product with high growth prospects. There is great need of updating and upgrading this policy instrument, in the light of the rapidly changing tourism demand and developments in the cultural status of Pafos, such as the selection of Pafos to be the 2017 European Capital of Culture. The Strategic Plan must have a new target year of 2020 and beyond. A key purpose of the upgraded and enhanced policy instrument is the preparation of Action Plans. There is scope of interfacing with the 'Operational Programme Competitiveness & Sustainable Development'; the improved policy instrument can form the basis for mainstreaming into European Structural and Investment Funds. Which partners are working on this? Pafos Regional Board of Tourism The Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020 The Regional Operational Programme (ROP) 2014-2020, thematic objective 5, Investment priority: 5.1 has following priorities: the conservation, the protection, the promotion and the sustainable development of the natural and cultural heritage. The policy focuses on the restoration of the historic monuments listed in the universal and national heritage lists, or classified historic monuments in urban areas, in order to raise their tourism attractiveness and thus contribute to the overall competitiveness of the region. The restoration works are extremely important, but there is also a need to raise awareness about the use of authentic building materials; to involve the local communities and create synergies between culture and tourism; to innovate by integrating intangible cultural heritage, events facilities, interpretation skills and new technologies in the visitor experience, as a means to ensure long-term attractiveness and economic growth. The ROP is based on the common development priorities proposed in the Regional Development Plans for the 2014-2020 period drawn-up by each of the eight RDAs, one of which is RDA Centre (RDAC). Sibiu County Tourism Association (SCTA) is missioned by the regional administration (Sibiu County Council) to develop and implement its strategic plan for tourism involving all the relevant stakeholders at all levels. SCTA has been directly involved by its public members with RDAC in the development of the new ROP 2014-2020. Which partners are working on this? Sibiu County Tourism Association The Municipal Development Plan 2014 – 2020 of Burgas Municipality It is a major strategic document for sustainable and integrated social and economic development of the Burgas Municipality for the following 7- year period. It defines the development framework for the new programming period through integrating the economic, environmental, social and infrastructure aspects of the desired sustainable and balanced growth. The Plan identifies a few strategic aims, which should be achieved and built on: Strategic objective 1: Sustainable development on the territory of the municipality and environmental protection;Strategic objective 2: Increasing the quality of life standard. Under these two aims the following Priority 2 Integrated territorial development is envisaged comprising Measure 5 Tourism development, integrated tourist products and creative industries. The Municipal strategy for sustainable tourism development will pave the way and provide the necessary basis and strategic directions for the realization of the measure. On a wider scope this will provide an opportunity for the realization of the Municipal vision – “Burgas – a key city of the Black Sea region – the eastern gate to the EU, Burgas – a city of High Technologies, Energy, Management, Industry, Education, Tourism and Environment”  Which partners are working on this? Burgas Municipality Regional Operational Programme North 2020 - Axis 6 - Investment Priority 8b - 6.5.1 It is a broad policy instrument that includes tourism as one of its objectives under Axis 6 - Investment Priority 8b - 6.5.1. Assure economical value of endogenous low density spaces resources, through the improvement of specific strategies for the promotion of territorial competitiveness. It aims to share endogenous resources, creating value and jobs, among other strategies through tourism and includes a wide range of measures for the improvement of competitiveness in the North region. It identifies several endogenous resources with a touristic potential and aims to transform them in real parts of the touristic sharing process with equilibrium between the public's needs and offer possibilities. Among these identified resources the policy instrument counts with the development of new uses for declining industrial regions as well as the accessibility to cultural and natural resources. In the adaptation of industrial regions to new uses there is always a gain in a cultural approach. Tourism looking to know old and new ways of doing things can be profited from, and help to create jobs and improve cultural interaction if units are prepared for visitors and accessible. The aim of creating accessibility, both physical and intellectual, provides the means to create self-consciousness and an environment of trust and self-esteem, by showing evidence of the value of regional entrepreneurship that will help to shift change and renew trust to an industrial ecosystem.

Based on the good practice used for verification of expenditure in the Czech Republic for previous programme Interreg IVC,  all Czech project partners can submit expenditure for verification to controllers only if the amount of the expenditures is above 7.500€ and/or at least once a year.Czech project partners can submit expenditures for verification to controllers also below 7.500€ threshold. However in this case they first need to get an approval by the respective controllers. Notwithstanding the financial threshold, Czech project partners have to submit partner report (activity part) every reporting period. The costs The above-mentioned body will perform the first level control free of charge to Czech project partners. On-the-spot checks The first level control body will organise on-the-spot-checks on a sample basis using a risk-based approach. In addition, Czech Lead Partners will be checked at least once during the project lifetime. The on-the-spot-checks can be performed only after the submission of the first request for expenditure certification and no later than the date of the submission of the last request for expenditure certification. Guidance for Czech Beneficiaries (Pokyny pro příjemce ke kontrole) were published on national level in order to help partners through the control process.
