Forest-based Cross-sectoral Value Chains Fostering Innovation and Competitiveness in the Danube Region

FORESDA wants to show that it is possible to transform the forest-based industries (FBI) into attractive and sustainable industry sectors.

By developing innovative products and services that come as a result of the cooperation with another economy sectors, such as agriculture, construction, pharmaceutics, etc. This is the so-called cross-sectoral approach.

What is needed to achieve this goal?
FBIs need support for improving the innovation culture of their SMEs and this also means to strengthen collaboration among companies, faculties, and universities, research institutions, clusters etc. All those organizations and individuals who are dealing with innovations in one concrete region are part of the so-called regional innovation system.
