The priority Area 8

The priority area (PA) 8 aims to support the competitiveness of enterprises in the Danube Region.

The main targets of the PA 8 are:

  • To foster cooperation and exchange of knowledge between SMEs, academia and the public sector in areas of competence in the Danube Region.
  • To improve business support to strengthen the capacities of SMEs for cooperation and trade.
  • To support enterprises through high performing training and qualification schemes.
  • To prioritize the effective implementation of measures provided for under the Small Business Act for Europe.
  • To improve the competitiveness of rural areas and in particular of the agricultural sector
  • To eliminate cross border barriers and bottlenecks to people and business -Seamless Europe for a livable Danube Region.
  • To improve framework conditions for SMEs in areas where competitive infrastructure is missing.

Steering Group of the PA 8

 

Each priority area is managed by two Danube countries; in case of PA 8 the Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labor and Housing Baden-Württemberg and the Ministry of Economy, Entrepreneurship and Crafts in Croatia are responsible for the management of the priority. The other Danube countries can contribute to the implementation of the PA activities. Each country can delegate a member to the so-called Steering Group (SG). The SG is a stable group of representatives of relevant inter-governmental bodies from the member states of the EUSDR and with meetings on a regular basis. The SG is coordinated by the two Priority Area Coordinators.

The SG's main purpose is to implement the EU Strategy for the Danube Region as well as to support and advise the PACs in certain concerns such as approving projects or nominate members to the Working Groups.
