European Regional Development Fund
South-East Slovakia and North-East Hungary belong to the poorest European regions with low economic performance and high unemployment rate. The companies established in the area are often characterised by low labour productivity and competitiveness. The reasons can be found in using of out-of-date technologies, low innovativeness of the companies and lack of R&D infrastructure in the area of their operation but also in unavailability of really efficient and “easy-to-use” services provided by the institutions dealing with support of entrepreneurs. This project aims at improving several of these areas. Firstly, it aims at strengthening and improving cooperation capacity and cooperation efficiency among Slovak and Hungarian Chambers of Commerce and Industry by increasing their staff members’ knowledge and experiences in the specific innovation services provided for entrepreneurs. Secondly, through a newly developed common on-line service “Cross-border Innovation Service Portfolio” the chambers will gather and provide all information on R&D infrastructure and innovation services in the area of South-East Slovakia and North-East Hungary at one place available 24 hours a day for anyone interested. In this way the chambers stimulate innovation-oriented cross-border cooperation among entrepreneurs and knowledge providers in effective way by using modern ICT solutions as internet and mobile phone applications. This altogether will contribute to the increased social and economic cohesion and smart and sustainable growth of the Slovak-Hungarian cross-border region.
