DRIVING SMART INDUSTRIAL GROWTH THROUGH VALUE CHAIN INNOVATION
The project aims to increase the capacity of industrial businesses to innovate. The objective is for companies to be able to absorb new knowledge and turn it into competitiveness edge. There is especially a need to help SMEs to overcome operational stress and a capacity shortage with respect to innovation as well as a stronger integration into emerging transnational and global value chains.
The project focuses on 5 key sectors in regional smart specialization strategies in each partner country. These include:
- advanced manufacturing,
- ICT and electronics,
- energy and environment,
The partnership will develop practical instruments (e.g. maturity models) to measure innovation potentials and capacities; set up triple helix “Innovation and Growth Alliances” and develop their capacity to support value chain innovation; and set up value chain observatories to analyse selected industrial sectors and their value chains. The project involves 11 partners from 8 Central European countries and 3 associated partners.
As part of the CHAIN REACTIONS project “Driving smart industrial growth through value chain innovation”, Wrocław Technology Park cooperates with:
- Wrocław Agglomeration Development Agency
- Wrocław Centre for Technology Transfer
- Lower Silesian Chamber of Commerce
- Balluff Sp. z o.o.
