Cooperation projects

Project aim

We develop solutions for the challenges in the Alps-Adriatic region together with public administrations, institutions and social entrepreneurs. We analyse problems as well as best practice examples and create a social ecosystem map in order to do so.

All 4 regions (Carinthia, South Tyrol, Friuli, Veneto) organise idea competitions to find local solutions with social impact. Starting in January 2019, all contributors at the 4 locations will be offered Social Impact Training and an Accelerator Programme.

Based on this experience, we derive business models in connection with social entrepreneurship and develop a self-test for social entrepreneurs. Two national events (DemoDays) are planned in order to present the collected information to the public and network actors in the Alps-Adriatic region. Finally, a handbook will be published and the acquired knowledge will be transferred to the public administration system through workshops.

Project aim

The “fight for talent” has intensified on a global scale in recent years. The emigration of entrepreneurial talent and innovative companies from border regions into more attractive start-up ecosystems has increased. The region’s low level of internal and external networks and the need to strengthen innovation networks are particularly critical aspects. As a result, EES AA is leading the way in linking local entrepreneurial and start-up hubs to create a cross-border entrepreneurship cluster in which technology parks, universities, start-up centres and coworking spaces play key roles. The EES AA is made visible as a destination for the best innovative companies in the region and beyond (global).

Project budget

Total eligible costs: EUR 1,214,537.81

Funding (ERDF funding): EUR 997,330.24

Project period

01/01/2017 – 31/12/2019

Measures

  • A cross-border EES AA destination is to be created through the development of a common vision and strategy as well as a joint action plan (organisation of joint lighthouse events, strategic coordination with other entrepreneurial ecosystems).
  • The aim is to create a systematic package of high level services for the development and growth of innovative SMEs/start-ups in the programme area (mobilisation, start-up soft landing, marketing potential).
  • A cross-border, high-quality support programme will be provided.
  • An educational programme for entrepreneurship will be developed as well as its piloting in the project area.
