Partners

Partnership is involving different key actors forming the institutional framework for fostering innovation: national and regional ministries, technology and innovation agencies and research organisations. It is composed of 15 partners from 11 SEE countries, covering old and new EU member states and (potential) candidate countries, representing a majority of SEE geographical area with population of 104 mio inhabitants.

Mainly partners are representative national public bodies and therefore have the necessary institutional, technical and financial capacity for taking part in the project.
4 ministries are directly influencing the decision-making process for strategies, legislation and initiatives for fostering innovation. They have sufficient experience but would like to further increase capacity for most effective implementation of the instruments (enhancing framework conditions, technological development, research, education).

Innovation and technology agencies as well as research organisations are implementation bodies for different innovation supporting instruments and are directly linked to respective ministries.
Their competences include designing, implementation and evaluation of national policies/programmes. There are many differences in their experience and methods but their common aim is to support excellence in science to attract private sector. They intend to work jointly on harmonised effective methodologies and contribute to improved situation in SEE. This can be achieved only by close cooperation of different actors on governance level, from strategic to the operational one. To ensure comprehensively designed TIAS and SAT, project relates to three pillars: research, economy and policy. Consortium has some research oriented partners, but in order to strengthen the research pillar, additional cooperation with research institutions will be established (by subcontracting) in WP3 for the specific know-how related to TIAS and SAT development.
