2022 was the year of impact for our entire network !

2022 was the year of impact for our entire network ! Extensive, challenging and complex, it was the year where our work produced visible and tangible change.

While looking back at all the great work done by our community of professionals, I would like to feature several key achievements in our regions under focus:

·1) Enabling #SMEs#universities#publicsector actors and #NGOs from #EasternEurope and #WesternBalkans acquire more than 3.5 mil EUR in European Commission grants that will enable us to work together and coproduce marketable innovations, create jobs and facilitate a more competitive environment in the region.

2) Co-facilitating a strategic agreement between (Ministerul Cercetarii, Inovarii si Digitalizarii) – Romanian Ministry of Research, Innovation and Digitalization and EIT Manufacturing that will shape the transition to an #intelligent and AI-driven #smart #manufacturing in Romania. A great impact stemmed from the EIT HEI Initiative and implemented with Iceberg Plus !

3) Grounding an innovation support mechanism in Western Romania that will enable #healthcare startups to scaleup and accelerate their services/products. This mechanism became an official regional policy implemented Timiș County Council with the support of West Regional Development Agency – West RDA and the local innovation ecosystem.

4) Bringing the #NewEuropeanBauhaus (NEB) closer to the #digital#integrated and #sustainable urban development of Timisoara by
enabling the City Governance, Primăria Municipiului Timișoara to uptake NEB principles in synergy with Climate-KIC.

5) Enabling 3+ impact oriented startups to access early stage funding (200 000 EUR) and support mechanisms enabling them to expand their portfolio in Eastern Europe.

6) Contributing to active change in 18+ higher education institutions by modernising their #technologytransfer processes, research #commercialization and #entrepreneurial capacities.

7) Creating #cultural & #creative bridges between Romania, Serbia and Greece by leveraging the #NewEuropeanBauhaus (NEB) values and EU Capitals of Culture strategies (Novi Sad, Timisoara, Elefsina) to homogenise NEB value implementation in urban development.

We would like to thank our 75+ international partners for the excellent collaboration and enthusiasm and we look forward to an even more challenging 2023 where we can maximise our impact even more !
