The main objective of IDEA is to develop a joint strategy to secure the human capital for the innovation process. The added value of the project is created from the merger of existing experience and expertise in securing the development of high potential for the innovation process and to derive strategic measures for achieving a mature level of innovation in Central Europe.
A common strategy and action plan will be developed. For this reason all actors (universities, educational institutions, local and regional decision-makers) were identified and included. Major stakeholders (e.g. ministries) are involved in the project to support the policy of the EU in terms of "Transnational Knowledge Development" and to provide innovative development opportunities for European regions.
