The Interreg Danube Transnational Programme (DTP) designed a Capitalisation Strategy to streamline the process of creating synergies between projects and to develop strategic partnerships of previous, present and future initiatives. The Interreg DTP set up the objectives, target groups and activities of the Capitalisation Strategy and created a Handbook to give answers to potential questions that capitalisation practitioners may have.
To enhance the visibility and impact of both projects and Programme, 11 “Thematic Poles” have been established to enable projects to exploit and consolidate one another’s achievements, and create a higher leverage effect. The DTP Capitalisation shall empower involved projects to improve the quality and sustainability of deliverables, strengthen their communication to common stakeholders, and enable the reinforcement of existing or forming of new cooperation networks and projects. In addition, DTP Capitalisation shall increase the knowledge of programming bodies about cooperation-gaps, territorial needs and/or potentials in the Programme area.
Priority Area 8 actively cooperates with 3 Thematic Poles connected to and supporting the competitiveness of enterprises in the Danube Region. More information on the cross-pole cooperation of the Thematic Poles 1, 2 and 3 can be found here.
|Innovative Ecosystem brings together organisations and partners whose main goal is to enable and foster technology development and innovation. In other words, the Innovative Ecosystem shall, in the scope of the DTP programme, enable collaborative innovation between project partners, their stakeholders and target groups, through combining complementary resources, systems and support, with a clear goal to generate new products, features, processes, services or value. The collaborative aspect is utmost important since it creates value that cannot be produced by the organisation on its own.|
There are 9 projects in the TP 1: Innovative Ecosystems for SMEs. Their names, acronyms, lead partners and their contact details are provided on the DTP's website.

|Entrepreneurial Learning Systems fosters cooperation between key stakeholders of labour market, education and research policies in order to develop learning regions and environments that shall jointly increase the innovative capacities of the labour force in the Danube Region. It will be achieved through new forms of partnerships and cooperation among key stakeholders (labour market, education and training, research and employers). Employers (private, public and voluntary) have an important role to play in identifying the knowledge, skills and competences needed in working life. The collaborative aspect is utmost important since it creates value that cannot be produced by the organisation on its own.|
There are 5 projects in the TP 3: Entrepreneurial Learning Systems. Their names, acronyms, lead partners and their contact details are provided on the DTP's website.
