The goal behind the Interreg Central Europe Programme is to cooperate across the borders of Central Europe, to make our cities and regions a better place to live and work. This transnational cooperation is the catalyser for implementing smart solutions that answer regional challenges in innovative, low-emission economy, environment, culture, and transport. Transnational cooperation builds capacity at regional level in line with a grassroots integrated approach, involving appropriate entities from all levels of management.

The 3DCentral project assumes to develop a network of regions of innovation active in quick prototyping and smart technology engineering through the so-called Knowledge Axis Central Europe (KACE). To ensure innovation fuelled development and reduce the differences present at the regional level, it is necessary to strengthen the links between entities participating in innovation systems and between regions. This activity should make an additional positive impact on the transfer of technology between the key players in innovation systems.

The most important envisaged project deliverable is “The reinforcement of ties between the participants of innovation systems achieved thanks to the transnational corporation, leading to an increase in the innovation potential of Central European regions”.

The project is financed from the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Interreg Central Europe programme.

The ACCELERO project aims to support Business Support Organizations (BSOs) in emerging or moderately developed countries or regions within the EU. As part of the project, selected institutions receive support to implement and pilot-test a new service for their target audience: startups and SMEs. Three of the selected institutions will have the opportunity to obtain EU-BIC certificates.


The ACCELERO initiative aims to analyze the needs of selected BSOs and improve their competencies and knowledge to enable them to implement the service. This will be achieved through close collaboration with representatives of business environment institutions from highly developed countries (referred to as HUBs), who will serve as advisors and mentors.


The planned project activities are:

  1. Selection of 10 BSOs: analysis of needs for previously offered services and initiation of collaboration with HUB leaders.

Creation of the ACCELERO service portfolio: identification of key and significant services provided by HUBs, from which selected institutions can benefit.

2. The task involves developing new services for 10 BSOs: this includes defining and describing the service, taking into account the needs of BSOs and their local ecosystems, specifying the implementation method, required specialized knowledge, and infrastructure.

3. The implementation phase involves testing the new service for each BSO and assessing its impact, including the satisfaction of startups/SMEs that are the recipients of this service.

4. The project aims to establish a pan-European network of business environment institutions from both emerging/moderately and highly developed countries. It also involves creating a catalog of services for BSOs that can be replicated, and implemented even after the completion of the ACCELERO project among institutions not participating in the project.


Project duration: September 01, 2022 – August 31, 2024.

Accelero is funded by Horizon 2020. Project number 101072092, HORIZON-EIE-2021-SCALEUP-01, with a total budget of EUR 998,750.00.

The project partners: EurA PT (Portugal) – the lead partner, EBN – European Business and Innovation Network AISBL (Belgium), bwcon GmbH (Germany), Business Innovation Center Innobridge (Bulgaria), Bpifrance – EuroQuity (France), and KPT (Poland).

InnoRegioMalopolska – enhancing Regional Innovation Strategy in Małopolska concerned the reinforcement of the region’s innovation strategy, and was conducted with partners from Poland, the United Kingdom, Italy, and Germany.


The KTP conducted an insightful research of Małopolska SME sector for the needs and knowledge of the institutional potential of the region. The data gathered in this way was used for the drafting of the “report on demand for innovation in Małopolska Region”. The project made it possible to conduct study visits in partner organisations in Italy and the United Kingdom, which played the role of advisers. Conducted in the final stage of the project were two pilot programmes: Design Centre in Małopolska, and Specialist Meetings for scientists and practitioners in individual fields.

Innovation broker as a tool for effective development of the system of Małopolska’s modern economy

The project was conducted in partnership between the Office of the Marshal of Małopolska Region and Kraków Technology Park. Its goal was to establish a modern model of collaboration between science and business, known as the “innovation broker” model.


A testing innovative project, the Innovation Broker was conducted in two stages. The first covered the preparations aimed at diagnosing the problem and working out the initial version of the model of brokerage. It comprised three offices (Centre for the Collaboration Network (CSW), Back Office for Intermediary Links (ZOP), and the Centre for Technologic Forecasts (OPT)), which provided support to the appropriate target group, ranging from cluster initiatives, via scientists and students, to small and medium-size enterprises operating in the region. The second stage of project implementation covered the testing of the initial model, its dissemination and inclusion into the region’s policy. Testing envisages primarily training and advice for the SME sector, including spin-offs and spin-outs, and also for the “intermediary links” in the process of technology commercialisation, i.e. technology transfer centres, incubators, and technology parks.

The model built thanks to the implementation of the project provided a significant contribution to the policy of innovation support and development in Małopolska. Its implementation helps to create experience- and knowledge-based economy. The broker system also helps to reinforce the Regional System of Innovation, being currently one of the key factors in development of our region.

The Innovation Broker as a tool for effective development of the system of Małopolska’s modern economy is co-financed from the European Social Fund as part of the Priority 8 of the Human Capital Operational Programme (2007–2013).

The aim of the project is to increase the level of innovation in the economy, particularly in sectors such as Industry 4.0 and gamedev, by bringing 40 foreign startups to Poland by the end of 2023. Twenty-six of them will represent the gaming industry, while fourteen will focus on Industry 4.0.


The project includes three editions of acceleration programs for international teams: two editions will focus on young talents in the gaming industry, and one will target startups with projects addressing challenges in the field of Industry 4.0. Each edition will involve a 3-month soft landing and team development process, a 6-month acceleration of startups, preparing them for commercial collaboration with business partners, and finally, post-acceleration support. During the three acceleration editions, startups will follow a specially designed development path, achieving milestones related to the development of their products. The project is a response to market challenges, the increasing importance of industrial innovations, and the dynamic growth of the gaming industry.


While KPT is the leader of the project, significant roles will be played by business partners interested in supporting selected startups that address challenges defined by them. In the process of recruiting participants for development programs, KPT will conduct extensive scouting activities on a global scale.

Society in Innovation and Science through CODEsign

Project acronym: SISCODE


The purpose of SISCODE is to introduce project methodology and tools, including the Living Lab methodology, to the planning and responsible management of research and innovation by developing effective mechanisms and instruments supporting shared design and development of innovative solutions. This will have new solutions and policies smoothly moving on to their implementation.

The SISCODE project concentrates on the process of co-creation and its role in the implementation of Public Engagement (PE) and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). Such political goals call for early involvement of multiple actors, public included, in science and innovation, whereas public engagement hardly ever continues beyond the stage of consultations. In this context, emergence of the concept of co-creation calls for special attention, as it is strictly linked to Social Innovation (SI). The grassroots process and community (i.e. public) elements of co-creation have a potential to support co-creation of solutions by multiple stakeholders, with public administration, private sector, and community interacting one with another.

SISCODE will compare 40 ecosystems for developing social innovation, serving locals, business, and administration throughout Europe. In turn, 15 ecosystems will be analysed in detail for processes of co-creation of innovative solutions for the involvement of local, regional, and national stakeholders in the process of implementing EU policies in matters relevant for Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). The selection of best practices will be based on an investigation of various cultural, institutional and regulatory frameworks within which innovations are developed, and of their level of technological maturity and location in the process of transfer from the academia to business. Special attention in the analysis of ecosystems will be devoted to the interactions between management models, understanding of the impact of various cultural and institutional frameworks, specific features of stakeholder groups participating in public innovation, as well as public and social challenges which the recommended innovative solutions answer.

The project will result in the development of 10 innovation development laboratories at supra-national level based on the experience, and standards and practices developed by three European networks: the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL), the Fab Labs international network, and Ecsite | the European Network of Science Centres and Museums. Laboratories will implement various concepts of co-creation and practical solutions answering specific challenges in the process of social integration in the field of science and innovation.

SISCODE will use the innovative potential of local, regional, and national policymakers by providing best solutions – ones that already exist between living laboratories represented by three independent lab networks – and also the creation of a pan-European model of cooperation guaranteeing scalability and repeatability of methodology and tools in the scope of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) aligned with the EU policy. Such steps should make a positive impact on technology transfer between key subjects of innovation systems.


The scope of tasks embraced by the Kraków Technology Park (KPT): Besides active participation in project tasks at all the stages of the project, the Kraków Technology Park is particularly responsible for the organisation of events disseminating the development best practices in public innovation, notably in the areas of health and physical fitness construed as part of the Smart City concept (hackathons, workshops, open days, and other).


The project is financed from Horizon 2020 funds, as part of the Research and Innovation Action (RIA)

The SISCODE project consortium consists of partners, who are perfectly well balanced institutionally and geographically to demonstrate the greatest variety of the tools applied and practices developed as well as the broadest possible scope of expansion (by ensuring access to the greatest number of entities, whether public or private, at regional and national levels).

SISCODE have partners come from 13 countries of Europe: Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Spain, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.

Smart Circuit
innovation support
Smart Circuit

The Smart Circuit project extends the competences of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) in order to promote the principle of circular economy (CE).

While manufacturing is an important link in Central Europe, it is also resource-intensive and generates a significant amount of waste and emissions, especially in value chains related to the electronics, construction, and textile sectors.


By bringing together DIHs, partners of the project will be able to learn about best practices and enhance their circular manufacturing potential.


The direct aim of the project is to analyse, develop and support the role of DIH-oriented organisations in the development and implementation of CE.


The project will support actions related to transforming the manufacturing industry towards a smarter and more sustainable development. These actions will involve:


  • Improving the potential of innovation and cooperation in this respect by strengthening transnational innovation networks between DIHs;
  • Helping small and medium enterprises to better integrate the CE principles;
  • Exchanging good practices, standards and initiatives related to Industry 5.0 and CE in manufacturing;
  • Implementing pilot initiatives to test and design support services;
  • Supporting the transfer of technology and innovation from science to business.

We expect to create and design innovative solutions and services over three years of cooperation, which will allow DIHs to enhance the manufacturing ecosystem in Central Europe and direct it towards a more ecological and competitive future.


The project is financed from the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Interreg Central Europe programme.

Startup of the SOILL support structure for SOIL Living Labs


Description of the project: The main goal of the project is to facilitate the implementation of innovative solutions in the agricultural sector and transition to the use of healthy soils by 2030. Its assumptions are thus in line with the European strategy of green transformation, caring for the planet’s natural resources, and striving to establish a circular economy. The detailed objectives of the project include:


  • Establishment of a coordinating structure supporting and promoting a network of 100 Soil Health Living Labs (SHLL) and Soil Health Lighthouses (SHLH), operating according to uniform procedures, offering training packages and tools supporting green transformation.
  • Strengthening the potential of research units and business environment institutions as ambassadors and practitioners of green transformation, whose competencies will facilitate regional transformation in line with the assumptions of the climate package.
  • Establishment of an online competence center for actions aimed at achieving climate neutrality and implementing the “A Soil Deal for Europe” strategy.
  • Mutual learning, joint organization of events, exchange of contacts, experiences, and inspirations.
  • Regular monitoring and evaluation of SHLL and SHLH, taking into account regional and supraregional regulations and legal acts.


The project is implemented by a consortium consisting of 29 organizations from 13 European countries. It is led by the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL), an independent non-profit association bringing together nearly 300 members from the scientific community, business environment institutions, and technological companies.


KPT tasks in the project:

  • Conducting training on living lab methodology.
  • Providing training services in the use of new technologies to improve the climate.
  • Conducting demonstration, advisory, and information-promotional activities.

System of Małopolska’s modern economy

The project was conducted in collaboration between Kraków Technology Park and Małopolska Region – the leader of the project, as part of the Integrated Regional Development Operational Programme, Measure 2.6. The project made it possible to tighten the cooperation links between the worlds of science and business, and also to construct a communication platform for projects supporting development of innovation. The main recipients of the projects were the Małopolska SME circles, businesses involved in the creation and development of clustering initiatives and R&D, and academic milieus.


The following were completed as part of the project:

  • image campaign of the regional system of modern economy, which included a TV spot, a supplement to Dziennik Polski regional daily, press ads, and a press release on the project
  • workshop and training that provided specialist knowledge on the functioning and organisation of innovation centres, and the manner of collaboration between these centres
  • information database on modern economy available from the Wrota Małopolski website, and community information exchange mechanisms implemented with it.

Technology Perspective Kraków–Małopolska 2020

Aiming at building modern knowledge- and experience-based economy, Kraków Technology Park was the initiator of Technology Perspective Kraków–Małopolska 2020 research programme. Invited to cooperate were also the authorities of Małopolska Region, business and commercial chambers, and an array of Kraków universities: the Jagiellonian University, the AGH University of Science and Technology, and Kraków University of Technology (PK). The project was conducted from October 2008 to January 2011.


Following the study conducted according to the globally popular foresight method, a list of 10 technologies most significant for the development of Małopolska was generated together with scenarios necessary for their implementation. Moreover, the programme showed also the directions that scientific studies in Małopolska universities and research institutions should follow.

Transnational Technology Transfer Enterprise Agents

The general objective of the project is to increase and upgrade skills and competences of European SMEs in the field of transnational technology transfer and accelerate public and private stakeholder organizations in increasing their responsiveness to SMEs skills needs. In particular the aim of the project is to mind the gap between SMEs and transnational technology innovation processes (simplify technological and R&D language + set up a skill needs identification mechanisms to accelerate training processes and subsequent transfer initiatives), establish a permanent, evolving & multi-actor training mechanism which will allow to respond to the needs of SME’s staff as well as of professionals working with/for SME’s and moreover to increase institutional capacity and awareness of responsible actors of industrial, technological and training policies about the role of transnational technology transfer for SMEs

There are 4 phases of the project:

Phase 1 – State of the Art of existing training mechanisms facilitating the role of technology transfer in SMEs

Phase 2 – Based on evidences of phase 1, partners will cooperate in Creating a Transnational Training Course Blue Print.

Phase 3 – Joint Learning Platform for Transnational Technology Transfer Enterprise Agents: the e-learning hub for transnational tech transfer professionals

Phase 4 – Creation of Training & Policy Guidelines


About the Programme:

Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train gain experience, and volunteers abroad. Erasmus + is based on the achievements of European educational programs, which functioned for 25 years, and is the result of a combination of the following European initiatives undertaken by the European Commission in 2007-2013: the “Learning for Life” program “Youth in Action” program, Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and cooperation programs with industrialized countries in higher education.
