Acronym: URBAN INNO
Framework: Interreg Central Europe | Duration of the project: 01.06.2016-31.05.2019
Aim of the project: URBAN INNO is addressing the challenge to make Central Europe more innovative and competitive by maximizing the innovation potential of smaller and medium-sized urban ecosystems. A significantly better linkage of actors within urban innovation ecosystems (public authorities, research organizations, the industry as well as end-users respective customers and citizens) is needed for better use of innovation potentials. Public and private sectors recognize that there is especially a significant gap in the field of participation in innovation processes from people as citizens and as users/customers. Many smart solutions, technologies, and services are not used widely because of the lack of knowledge and motivation or acceptance of end-users. URBAN INNO focuses on maximizing innovation potentials of urban ecosystems through:
a) Better linkage of actors in innovation systems by establishing and interlinking quadruple helix clusters/networks in the partner regions, and
b) The development and implementation of new participatory methods and tools to engage end-users in innovation processes with the objective to have educated and motivated users – SMART USERS.
The activity of PBN: A core team has been created involving ELTE Gothard Astrophysical Observatory, the Municipality of Vas County, Pannon Business Network Association, IFKA Public Benefit Non-Profit Ltd, and the Ministry for National Economy. On the one hand, their common aim is to make Szombathely a smart city, on the other hand, the members of the team would like to establish a Big Data center which may help to share the big amount of data arising from the industry.
