THE PROJECT / O PROJEKTU

The wood industry in the Danube region, as well as other industries which are based on a timber, have the potential to become the motor of a viable and competitive economy, but, unfortunately, suffer from a significant difference, with a low level of internationalization, the lack of co-operation, and so the lack of innovation. Hence arose the project FORESDA to support the transformation of traditional sectors resting on forestry in the Danube region. Drvna industrija u Dunavskom regionu, kao i druge privredne grane koje su oslonjene na šumarstvo, imaju potencijal da postanu motor održive i konkurentne privrede, ali nažalost, pate od značajnih razlika, niskog nivoa internacionalizacije, nedostatka saradnje, nedostatka inovacija itd. Otuda je nastao projekat FORESDA u cilju podrške transformaciji tradicionalnih sektora oslonjenih na šumarstvo u Dunavskom regionu. 

THE PROCESS / POSTUPAK

Through its activities, FORESDA will transform the wood industry and other traditional industries to innovative, modern sectors which rely on the forest; develop eco-systems ready for innovation, in order to improve, or reconfigure existing value chains; strive to improve innovation and the development of awareness of the need for innovation in small and medium-sized enterprises, strengthen cooperation in quadruple helix model and implement new ways of cooperation in the Danube region.Kroz svoje aktivnosti, FORESDA će transformisati drvnu industriju tako i druge tradicionalne privredne grane u inovativne, moderne sektore koje su oslonjene na šumu; razviće eko-sisteme spremne za inovacije, sa ciljem da se poboljšaju ili rekonfigurišu postojeći lanci vrednosti; težiti ka poboljšanju inovacija i razvoju svesti o potrebi inovacija u malim i srednjim preduzećima, jačati saradnju po modelu četvorostrukog heliksa i implementirati novi načini saradnje u Podunavlju. 
To obtain more resources from the Danube region, which is energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable, project will:. / U cilju dobijanja više resursa iz Podunavskog regiona koji je energetski efikasan i ekološki održiv projekat će:
