3D Central

Cooperating on innovation to make central europe more competitive


Acronym: 3D CENTRAL

Framework: Interreg Central Europe

Duration of the project: 01.06.2016-30.11.2018.

Aim of the project:

The 3D CENTRAL project aims at connecting “islands of innovation” to a stable network of regions for innovation. It´s focused on smart engineering & rapid prototyping where a substantial, current & future emerging market for CE cooperation partners is visible.

Generally there is solid knowledge base in the CE area, but less structured and less connected. This leads to some inefficiencies in developing regions, RTD and business sector. To tackle these challenges, to transform and improve this situation consequent, durable solutions with sufficient resources are required.

Therefore the main objective is to develop, implement and anchor powerful, practicable, future robust Knowledge Axes for the CENTRAL Europe (KACE) cooperation area to tighten and boost the linkages and capacities amongst the relevant technology & innovation actors of smart engineering & rapid prototyping.
