Entrepreneurship - a shortcut to success

The current project offers an instrument for a sustainable regional policy, emphasizing the promotion of entrepreneurship, innovation and the growth of the knowledge economy. Research by the Ruse Chamber of Commerce and Industry shows that the cross-border region Romania - Bulgaria is lagging behind in the field of business innovations, which reflects on economic development. It is also observed: a small amount of investment for innovation, even by larger companies; small number of intellectual patents that have a market offer; small number of innovative enterprises; limited involvement of scientists in business projects; less than 1% of scientific developments have a business application; lack of partnership between business and science At the same time, there is an understanding that the development of an innovative environment has a decisive role in the process of increasing competitiveness at the macro and micro level. Adequate support in this area, especially at the regional level, is still lacking. General objectives of the project: To contribute to the general development of a sustainable socio-economic cross-border region with a favorable image; To bring together people, societies and economies to build an integrated common area by harnessing innovative potential.
