Successful three years of TRANS³Net have ended but the work continues...

The border area between Germany, Czech Republic, and Poland is characterised by a low level of transnational cooperation between science and industry. Thus, during its project lifetime TRANS³Net shaped the conditions for building up a well working innovation system in this tri-national region. For this reason, TRANS³Net started the establishment of strong ties and a self-sustaining cooperation between ‘transfer promotors’ and further actors of the scientific, economic and public sphere. By involving all key players relevant for knowledge and technology transfer, TRANS³Net provided different measures to overcome the multifaceted obstacles concerning transnational cooperation between science and industry in this very region. By doing this, TRANS³Net contributed significantly to the emergence of collaborative and transational innovation projects in the region which are improving quality of life in a long-term perspective. Furthermore, TRANS³Net piloted different formats that are transferable to other regions and could indeed improve the innovation capacity in all of central Europe. 

TRANS³Net successfully promoted the formation of trustful linkages between innovation-relevant players through piloting various low-threshold event formats like TRANS³ and TRANS³Net.visit for bringing science and industry togehter, TRANS³Net.dialogue for shaping political conditions for transantational transfer and TRANS³ imparting transfer promoting institutions with relevant skills for implementing transational innovation projects. A catalogue with manuals for transferring pilot actions to further regions in Central Europe is available now.

Finally, in September 2020, TRANS³ was established, based on cooperation of in the meantime 9 insitutions from the three projects regions continuting in promoting transnational transfer. Network is based on strategy and action plan elaborated by TRANS³Net team. 

For all results and outputs of TRANS³Net project online tutorials are available describing implementation of various tested measures based on made experiences.

The work of TRANS³ continues after project lifetime. Please find further information on TRANS³´s website.
