Funded Projects – Research & Development Projects
The European Union’s development plans – aimed at consolidating economic and social cohesion, and improving training and employment opportunities – offer many important financing opportunities for the socio-economic development of EU countries.
Areas of particular interest – for those who work in the field of new technologies, and in particular in ICT – are represented by the objectives of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF, FESR) which, with great attention to territorial specificity, concentrates its investments in plans and projects concerning Innovation and Research, the Digital Agenda, support for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), the sustainable low-carbon economy. The design and investment choices are developed through multi-level governance and multi-stakeholder – according to cooperation processes between Public Administration, private companies, universities and research institutions – which constitute the Smart Specialization Strategy (S3).
Synergies are obtained through this innovative governance model – between scientific and technological research, application skills and market knowledge – with the aim of developing human capital and the economic potential of the territory.
