A working meeting of the RTIT>> project was held in Ljubljana


The two-day working meeting of the project “Knowhow Communities for Accelerating RTI Transfer in the Danube Region” (RTIT>>) was successfully held in Ljubljana. This meeting was also the first opportunity for project partners to meet in person and work together on defining steps for continuing activities.

The project brought together 13 partners from eight Danube countries, with IEC Tehnopolis taking the lead role. This is also the first time that a partner from Montenegro has taken a leading role in a project implemented under the Danube Region Programme.

The meeting detailed three thematic groups within the project, within which partners will implement their pilot actions. Group leaders discussed:

  • Bio-based materials,
  • Sustainable materials and technologies,
  • Advanced materials.

Special focus was placed on exchanging best practices in using real-time information transfer (RTI) tools in the field of materials and material technology.

During the consortium’s working meeting, the project work packages were presented, and the next activities were defined with a special focus on the role each partner will have within a particular package. Additionally, workshops were conducted providing further insights into the project’s thematic areas, and new collaboration opportunities among partners were identified.

The aim of the RTIT>> project is to strengthen the innovation capacity of small and medium-sized enterprises in the Danube region in the field of materials and material technology through the transfer of research results, technology, and innovation (RTI) and the establishment of a transnational knowledge community. The total value of the project is EUR 2,391,220.00, with project partners from Montenegro, Slovenia, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ukraine, Germany, Bulgaria, and Hungary.

The project is implemented under the Danube Region Programme and co-financed by the European Union.
