APP4INNO
Over 300 entrepreneurs from 10 countries showed interest in our call for innovation ideas in the food and agriculture field. We coached the most advanced of them through pilots strongly oriented to soft and open innovation as well as knowledge transfer. The call had an internationalization effect, as well. Most of them worked on new marketing tools, supply chain enhancement, and branding meeting the expectations of new lifestyle demands and globalized markets.

Thanks to the project know-how we managed to establish a local network of private and public entities and initiate a regional biomass supply chain. In one of the transnational pilots we guided a Greek company to use a simplified certification system, the elements of which we ‘borrowed’ from other partners. This company has now integrated this system in its daily business.

INTERVALUE
Of the 18-20 projects that I‘ve been involved with this was one of the best. The main success of the project was bringing researchers and users together with interactive support services. This type of project was much needed and that the collection of research, its valorisation and agreements between researchers and companies achieved concrete results. And it brought the community together.

VIBE; EVLIA
We see the main benefit from SEE projects in the learning process and knowledge exchange transnational cooperation stimulates among partners. This strongly contributes to changes in mindset. In addition, through the VIBE project, in particular, we could offer concrete funding support to SMEs during the Innovation Cafés held in Bucharest based on the project methodology.

DaHar; NELI; HINT
Transnational cooperation in SEE projects had an overall positive effect on the capacity of our organisation (i.e. port personnel) and also on our partner companies. Around 50 local Austrian companies extended their business to partner ports on the Danube. The info and training centre we set up thanks to NELI has engaged with 4,500 young people interested in a navigation or logistics career linked to the river.

ID:WOOD
We strengthened existing links with wood clusters and wood tech centres in  Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Romania, Bulgaria, Austria and Italy and also enlarged the cooperation of our companies with peers from Austria and Italy. This had been a very beneficial experience particularly for the SMEs, some of which signed cooperation agreements.

GeoSEE
The results of GeoSEE were very interesting for the various SPA businesses in our region as they learned how to combine several renewable energy sources (i.e. hybrid RES) for their needs, e.g. water heating, electricity, and avoid using coal.

POLYINVEST
The most easily recognizable outcome of POLYINVEST in Oradea is the territorial offer we use for territorial marketing towards local and foreign investors. Thanks to this offer we managed to attract companies for two new industrial parks in addition to the already existing park, thus increasing the number of jobs in the region by 4,000.

NEWADA duo
Exchange of experience with partners has been very beneficial and this is exemplified by the high level results, i.e. inputs to the master plan for the development and co-management of the Danube waterway. The plan was endorsed by most concerned transport ministers from the Danube countries on 3 December 2014 in Brussels. Transnational cooperation is essential for maintaining good navigation conditions on the river and in that sense the NEWADA duo legacy has laid down the premises of a currently implemented Connecting Europe Facility project worth EUR 23,4 million.

Iron Curtain Trail
The project gave us the opportunity to incorporate local mobility and tourism actions in an international framework, i.e. EuroVelo route 13. It gave us visibility on European level. Also it sponsored a feasibility study for delivering missing cycling infrastructure in our region, whose recommendations we currently implement.  Moreover, several new tourist offers were designed and one of them is already put into practice by a local tour operator in the Hungary - Croatia cross-border area.

InTourAct
Most tourist offers in our area focus on the city of Dubrovnik and neglect the tourist opportunities in the peri-urban territory or islands just off the coast. The InTourAct methodology helped us scan the tourist potential of these neglected locations and brainstorm on potential tourist products with local micro-businesses, small scale producers, and local communities. Our stakeholders are currently implementing the measures we defined in our local action plan for integrated and sustainable tourism.

JEWEL Model
Using the JEWEL Model method we set up an Urban Centre to engage with citizens and plan and implement the regeneration of the historical centre of Perugia. The experience with the Centre was very positive as it realized the rehabilitation measures defined together with the local community. The JEWEL Model was so effective that now the municipality is eager to replicate it in other functional parts of the city suffering depopulation and urban decay, e.g. the railway station area.

ROSEE
The project allowed us to develop a feasibility study for improving pedestrian crossings in Brescia by investigating low-cost investment options using the ROSEE evaluation approach and solutions tested by project partners. The city of Brescia used that study to make concrete investment in improving the safety of crossings in town. The added value of transnational cooperation in this case was the ‘patchwork of knowledge’ that the partnership created. The best part of the knowledge of each partner was pooled together much like bringing the different pieces of the same puzzle to build a complete picture.

DANUBE FLOODRISK
The DANUBE FLOODRISK project unified all single regional and national initiatives and skills of Danube riparian countries to generate harmonised transnational flood protection models. Model results are used regularly for dimensioning of flood protection dams, flood risk analysis, emergency plans, and for planning ecological measures. These models don´t only help to manage flood events but also to optimise waterway infrastructure actions and the construction of bridges, which was recently the case in Upper Austria.

BE-NATUR
Through transnational projects we could build capacity and negotiation power with decision-makers and local stakeholders, involve everyone in discussions and actions for sustainable land management to protect nature. In the SEE partner countries this is an important issue to solve from the bottom-up, i.e. the potential conflict between protection of nature and interests of land use. In Austria this is also an important issue as there is a need for balancing interests between agricultural laws and protected areas.

GREEN MOUNTAIN
We are in charge of the management of some of the main natural parks and protected areas in Romania – not an easy task considering the diverse interests of various stakeholder groups. Under the umbrella of the transnational partnership, however, we could start a dialogue with local stakeholders, who normally would oppose management plans. Important progress for combining nature protection and economic activities has been made in the pilot areas of Călimani and Domogled nature parks.
