On July the NEXT project will end, but we would like to exploit the follow up of a three years collaborative project. So we have made a proposal to NEXT partners that’s open to new ones.
You’ll find in attach two papers that explain how we would like to give continuity to NEXT:
- In the coming years the Italian regions, Croatia and Slovenia, will publish calls for financing initiatives to develop areas of specialization chosen by their Smart SpecializationStrategy (S 3)
- At the same time the EU through Horizon 2020 will play a similar role.
- In Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Albania governments will proceed to strengthen themselves excellence with targeted funding.
This means that in the next 6-7 years, it’s opening a space of opportunities to seize on innovation. In the Adriatic Ionian Macro Region will be therefore to materialize projects and initiatives to address the needs of common development.
The European Commission has published data on Horizon 2020 financed projects
UK was the country with the highest number of approved projects, but Germany was awarded the higher amount of investment, followed by Spain and Italy. Germany has also the medium project impact (600.000 €), than France, Nederland and UK (400.000) and Italy (300.000).
