Overall aim of interreg iv c

Overall aim of INTERREG IV C

The INTERREG IVC programme supports projects that aim, through interregional cooperation, to improve regional policies

Aims of the IPP application

  • Therefore this interregional partnership platform is aiming at:

  • Setting up a joint framework to improve the participation rate of the regions and in particular SME and local authorities in EU programmes and interregional co-operation,

  • Develop a monitoring tool to regularly assess the internationalisation policies of the participating regions including SMEs, local and regional authorities, support agencies

  • Develop initiatives to improve participation rate of these regions and regional actors in EU programmes and actions in the field of SME policies, innovation, environment and energy,

  • Develop and implement a joint IT tool to improve participation rate in the participating regions

  • Using the results of the co-operation in improving the structural funds mainstream programmes in the participating regions


Experiences with the ipp approach

Experiences with the IPP approach

  • project idea is based on a similar approach used in the RFO Perspective

  • potential of the approach:

    • reaching out to institutions which haven‘t been able to join interregional co-operation

    • synergy effects between interregional co-operation and othe EU programmes can be achieved

  • shortcoming in the current project:

    • too limited resources to achieve project objectives in each partner region

    • need for a more strategic approach to be based on active regional partnerships

Key elements of ipp ii

Key elements of IPP II:

  • Therefore it is suggested to develop a new INTERREG IV C application for the 2nd call on one of these topics including the following elements:

  • exchanging experiences on access strategies of local and regional actors/intermediaries in the participating regions with particular focus on:

    • Partnership models for improving access in interregional co-operation at local and regional level

    • Specific SME services for improving accelerated SMEs participation into European/international co-operation

  • identifying and selecting a limited number best practices in improving access in interregional co-operation of local and regional actors/intermediaries as part of the regional innovation strategies of the participating partners by

    • carrying out joint study visits to those regions which provide the best practices

    • producing an best practices inventory on access models and strategies

    • carrying out a joint seminar to present, discuss and select the access strategies

  • transferring of best practices (Partnership Model and Specific SME service) into other partner regions by

    • involving the local and regional actors/intermediaries through setting up regional partnerships

    • developing an interregional implementation plan to transfer the practices into the partner regions

    • supporting the implementation by staff exchanges and an interregional training seminar

    • developing an outlook report on the lessons learned from the exchanges and its potential role for the future


Key elements of ipp ii1

Key elements of IPP II:

  • development of a benchmark model on permanently measuring access rate of the participating partners and regularly monitoring access rates in the participating regions by

    • defining the benchmark criteria for the measuring access rates in a joint seminar

    • producing a benchmark model

    • carrying out regular monitoring reports on the access rate developing an IT

  • mainstreaming these practices in the ongoing regional innovation strategies and the Structural Funds Programmes by

    • regularly presenting the results of the co-operation project to the SF Monitoring Committee or other relevant policy groups at local and regional level

    • agreement for a joint policy meeting of high level representatives of the regional governments in the participating regions with the adoption of a joint mainstreaming-Action Plan

  • communicating and disseminating the results of the exchanges and transfers in the participating regions by

    • carrying out three Dissemination Conferences over the project life cycle:

    • 1. Start Up Conference: Innovation through international collaboration – chance and challenge for SMEs and local and regional intermediaries

    • 2. Transfer Conference: New Initiatives for international collaboration in accessing innovation

    • 3. Outlook Conference: Interregional Access to innovation as a central part of regional innovation policy

    • Setting up a web-site and publishing a regular newsletter

    • Regularly issue press releases and specific reports (Monitoring Report; Good practice Inventory; Mobile Exhibition of successful practices)
