The 1st Danube Competitiveness in Practice (DCP) event of the Priority Area 8 of the EU Strategy of the Danube Region (PA 8) will jointly be organized on 4-5 October 2017 in Pécs/Hungary together with the Open 4 Business Matchmaking event of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Pécs –Baranya Hungary.
The aim of the DCP event is to combine the official meetings of the PA8, political level meetings, matchmaking events along and cross the value chains with on-the-spot visits of "hidden champions" and regional centers for competences ("success stories") in the region. The above interlinkages will allow PA 8 to see the need on the specific fields which can lead, on one hand, to relevant policy initiatives and, on the other hand, can pave the way for various activities of cooperation among relevant stakeholders now and in the post 2020 period.
As regards the topics of the first event, we will put a special attention on the first Seed Money Call of the Danube Transnational Programme, which will be published at the beginning of October 2017. Within the frame of specific, thematic workshops (in line with the topics of the Seed Money Call) we will try to bring together different stakeholders and to foster the generation of strategic projects, which can eventually be submitted within the first Seed Money Call.
