SYNERGY aims at strengthening currently underdeveloped linkages, cooperation and synergies between companies, industry, research, intermediaries and policy makers in central Europe. The project will analyse funded and finalised innovation projects and cluster institutions involved in projects into three key areas covering the most promising modern industrial technologies. These areas include additive manufacturing and 3D printing, micro- and nanotechnology-related processes and materials, as well as the industry 4.0 sector.
Institutions and clusters included in each area will form ‘synergic networks’ based on a novel projects assessment methodology and a ‘synergic consortia matchmaking’ IT online tool. Moreover, the project will define new crowd innovation services and test them in different types of pilot actions. As a result, project activities will boost the creation of innovative services and facilitate transnational cooperation in the industrial sector.
