The South-East of Slovakia and the North-East of Hungary are among the poorest European regions with low economic output and high unemployment rates. Local enterprises often have low productivity and competitiveness due, among other things, to obsolete technologies, poor innovation skills and the lack of R+D infrastructure at these companies.
In order to develop these areas, the commercial and industrial chambers of the border regions have launched their ’Cross-border Innovation Service Portfolio’ project. The project, budgeted at EUR 162 174.60, will be implemented within the Interreg V-A Slovakia-Hungary Cooperation Program, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
As a result of the cooperation, a catalogue of innovation service providers has been drafted to provide information on R+D infrastructure and innovation services for enterprises in the South-East of Slovakia and the North-East of Hungary, thus encouraging innovation-oriented, cross-border cooperation between enterprises and knowledge providers. This catalogue is available online at https://inno-service.eu/hu/
Service providers and enterprises focusing on development can talk about cooperation at the following business sectoral meetings:
1. Meeting of timber industry and forestry professionals – Zvolen, 18 September 2018.
2. Mechanical and IT-systems for the mechanical industry – professionals meeting – Eger, 4 October 2018.
