The aim of the CapTTict project is to reduce the innovation gap and improve the capacity for technology and knowledge transfer in the field of ICT in the nine countries of the Danube region: Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Romania and Ukraine.

The CapTTict project addresses the lack of synergies, cooperation and exchange among knowledge transfer and innovation stakeholders and insufficient business support services for SMEs in the Danube region. Solving these problems is essential for effective valorisation of research results from higher education institutions and public research organisations (HEIs/PROs) and also for ability of SMEs to develop high added value products and services. The focus of the project is primarily on supporting HEIs/PROs in the successful introduction of technologies and the establishment of spin-offs/start-ups.

The CapTTict has three specific objectives (SO) to be achieved through planned activities with defined outcomes. The SOs are:

  • SO1 Enhancing technology transfer (TT) capacities at HEIs/PROs
  • SO2 Leveraging on European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIHs) and European Enterprise Network (EEN)
  • SO3 Creating access to ICT excellence in 4 non-EU countries for TT/ RDI cooperation and S3 development.

The objectives of SO1 are to establish Guidelines for effective TT and commercialisation and Methodology for selection and assessment of technologies for incubation/acceleration; to organise TT workshops for the management of HEIs/PROs and to set up a transnational ICT incubation and acceleration programme - Danube Digital Accelerator, and pilot it with 30 ICT technologies generated at HEIs/PROs.

As part of SO2, the offerings of EDIHs and EEN in the Danube region will be presented in one place and promoted towards SMEs through a digital tool (EXPERTS.AI platform) thereby enhancing the connection between SMEs and research and the transnational support system for SMEs.

Within SO3 the project will undertake a mapping of ICT excellence, both on the supply and demand side, in four non-EU countries to support transnational TT. This data mapping will serve as an example of an evidence-based approach to develop and improve S3 strategies.

The CapTTict consortium builds on diverse expertise of 16 project partners (PPs) and 8 associated strategic partners (ASPs) and brings together knowledge-generating organisations, organisations experienced in business development and innovation management as well as policy makers and innovation agencies.

RBI (as a project partner PP4) will actively participate in the activities of SO1 and SO2 based on its knowledge and experience and will lead the revision and finalisation of the Guidelines for HEI/PRO management on TT in ICT, the Methodology for the selection of technologies and the Model for a transnational incubation/acceleration programme.

The project is granted within the 1st call of the Interreg Danube program of the period 2021-2027.
