Smart Innovative Learning Hub, new platform for project implementation in future's economy, launched
The "Danube Riparian Local Communities" Association (CLDR Romania) announced on Friday, at the conference launching the Smart Innovative Learning Hub platform, that it is in full process of consultations and collection of proposals, suggestions and recommendations on the creation of a new aggregator of networks and projects.
The coordination of the new platform will be carried out by a team of nine experts, whose honorary chairman is Grigore Baboianu, honorary member of the "Danube Parks" - Protected Area Network (Austria), former Governor of the Danube Delta Reservation.
International Honorary Chair "Jean Bart", in support of the EU Strategy for the Danube region (CIO-SUERD), a project founded in 2012, in partnership with the Romanian Academy and the support of the Education Minister, proposes to organisations, companies and interested person to attract financing in various areas and to join the SMART Innovative Learning Hub. Thus, fund raising is intended in areas such as: bio-economic, bio and eco-agriculture, bio technologies, the food industry, climate risk fighting, good collaborative governance and innovation management.
"The idea of setting up this aggregator of networks and projects, especially in peak areas of territorial development and cooperation, cultural and historical heritage, integrated innovation in various areas was launched on the occasion of the recent debate at Cotroceni Presidential Palace, in the presence of the representative of SUERD National Coordinator - Foreign Affairs Ministry and the new partners - the Smart City Romanian Association and URBASOFIA Agency (Rome-Bucharest)," CLDR Romania representatives note.
Moreover, the Association underscore the fact that, as institutional member with the European Network for Education and Training (EUNET), CIO-SUERD assumes even more dynamically the "catalytic role and institutional lobby in order to consolidate new transnational partnerships and thus, participation in networks and far-reaching European projects, of which, until now, Romania has taken advantage to a lesser extent."
The Association's officials recall the European funds accessing through programmes such as Horizon 2020, INTERREG Europe, URBACT, UIA, Seed Money Facility, SUERD-POR etc.
