  • The  presenta@on  will  focus  at:     Original  plan:  innova/on,  service  innova/on...   But  instead  focus  shi5ed  towards:  Is  the  Danube  only  a  cover  word  for  this  strategy,  or   does  the  Danube  offer  enough  challenges  for  innova@on  in  this  macro-­‐region?     -­‐  The  Danube  Strategy  and  the  role  of  innova/on   -­‐  Specific  aspects  of  the  Danube  Strategy   An   ongoing   research   exercise   in   the   framework   of   the   EU2020:     DG   ENTR,   InnoGrips:   Global   Review   of     Innova/on     Policies   ,   2009-­‐2012   by   empirica,   (DE)   and   ICEG   European  Center  (HU)   Two  recent  research  projects  on  inland  waterways,  especially  regarding  the  Danube  5/B Kiralyhago Street H -1126 BudapestHUNGARY www.icegec.hTel: +36 1 248-1160 Fax: +36 1 319-0628 u
  • The  Danube  Strategy  and  the  role  of  innova@on  in  it:       European  Union  Strategy  for  Danube  Region  -­‐  Accepted  on  13  April,  2011   -­‐  Key  challenges  iden@fied  by  the  Strategy:     -­‐  Mobility   -­‐  Energy     -­‐  Environment   -­‐  Risks  (natural  and  industrial)   -­‐  Socio-­‐economic  (poverty,    insufficient  level  of  educa/on)   -­‐  Security,  serious  and  organised  crime   -­‐  Is  lack  of  innova@on  listed?  NO.     -­‐  Can  any  of  these  challenges  be  met  without  (local)  innova@on?  NO.     -­‐  Innova@on  is  listed  in  the  Strategy  as  one  thema@c  area  to  develop,  but  indeed:   -­‐  Innova@on   is   a   key   enabling   factor   laying   behind   the   solu@ons   to   any   of   these   challenges.    5/B Kiralyhago Street H -1126 BudapestHUNGARY www.icegec.hTel: +36 1 248-1160 Fax: +36 1 319-0628 u
  • The  Danube  Strategy    thema@c  focus:    The  Danube  itself     How   important   the   Danube   is   in   the   Danube   strategy?   Because   of   being   interlinked   with   so   many   socio-­‐economic   developments,   Danube   does   offer   a   large   set   of   challenges  for  future  innova@ve  solu@ons.       The  Danube,  as  a  river,    faces  mul@ple  challenges:       Danube  as  a  natural  ecosystem  that  requires  on  the  one  hand:       •  INNOVATIVE  solu/ons  to  protect  its  wildlife  and  biological  value  (by:  environment-­‐ friendly  agricultural,  industrial,  trade  ac/vi/es  around  it)         •  and  the  Danube  as  a  cultural  en/ty,  needing  the  protec/on  of  cultural  heritage  (by   protec/ng   its   tradi/onal   seelements,   minori/es,   languages,   customs,   etc   while   at   the   same   /me   allowing   for   informa/on   society   and   knowledge   based   economy   to   support  these  goals)  5/B Kiralyhago Street H -1126 Budapest  HUNGARY www.icegec.hTel:    +36 1 248-1160 Fax: +36 1 319-0628 u
  • The  Danube  Strategy    thema@c  focus:    The  Danube  itself       On  the  other  hand:       Danube   as   Europe s   key   inland   waterway   (2415   km)   (together   with   the   Rhine-­‐Main   waterways   3504   km)   which   needs   to   increase   its   capacity   for   waterway   transport   (freight,   most   importantly)   by   innova/ve   solu/ons   regarding   the   navigability   for   ships.       Waterway   transport   is   the   most   eco-­‐friendly   transporta/on   way   in   terms   of   emissions   (17%  compared  to  railway+road  emissions  per  ton-­‐kilometre)    (-­‐>  issues  of  Energy  in   the  Danube  Strategy),       New   European   strategy   (Roadmap   to   a   Single   European   Transport   Area)   targeted:   by   2030,  30%  of  road  freight  transport  over  300  km  should  be  put  on  water  or  railways      5/B Kiralyhago Street H -1126 Budapest  HUNGARY www.icegec.hTel:    +36 1 248-1160 Fax: +36 1 319-0628 u
  • The  Danube  Strategy    thema@c  focus:    The  Danube  itself     Percentage   of   inland   waterways   freight   transport   in   all   freight   transport   in   Europe   (Eurostat)  –  s/ll  higher  for  EU15       8   7   6   5   EU27   4   EU25   3   EU15   2   1   0   2000   2001   2002   2003   2004   2005   2006   2007   2008   2009  5/B Kiralyhago Street H -1126 BudapestHUNGARY www.icegec.hTel: +36 1 248-1160 Fax: +36 1 319-0628 u
  • The  Danube  Strategy    thema@c  focus:    The  Danube  itself     If  we  want  to  address  these  contradictory  challenges  (in  order  to  save  the  environment   while   adding   to   economic   development),   innova@ve   solu@ons   must   be   find   that   resolve  the  contradic@on.     Selected  key  areas  for  innova/on  that  address  natural  and  economic  challenges*:     -­‐  Protec/on   of   wildlife   and   ecosystem   while   ensuring   navigability   (tradi/onal   solu/ons   would   be:   sweeping   the   riverbed,   building   dams).   Ques/on:   are   there   any   other,  innova/ve  technological  solu/ons?     -­‐  Innova/ve  ships  and  waterways  transport  means   -­‐  Innova/ve   ICT   solu/ons   to   enhance   navigablity,   taking   into   account   meteorology,   accidents,  and  to  achieve  a  beeer  trackability  of  shipments   -­‐  Innova/ve   solu/ons   for   trimodal   transport:   currently   the   infrastructure   is   fragmented  and  expensive     -­‐  Innova/ove  solu/ons  for  ports  –  handling  of  liquid  and  hazardous  materials,  etc.     -­‐  Clustering  economic  ac/vi/es  that  may  need  waterway  transport      5/B Kiralyhago Street H -1126 BudapestHUNGARY    +36 1 248-1160 Fax: +36 1 319-0628 www.icegec.hTel: u
  • The  Danube  Strategy    thema@c  focus:    The  Danube  itself     *:  What  are  those  economic  challenges?  To  name  a  few:       •  Regional  demand  for  inland  waterways  transport,  clustering   •  Just-­‐in-­‐/me  logis/cs   •  Lack  of  capital  –  smaller  quan//es  of  supplies  ordered   •  Foreseen  changes  in  export/import  demand  for  agricultural  goods   •  Shioing   market   division   due   to   economic   recession   (road   transport   moved   into   market  areas  tradi/onally  covered  by  waterway/railway  transport)   •  Poten/al  to  increase  the  share  of  higher  value  added  services  in  waterway  transport   (currently:  dominated  by  bulk  goods)          5/B Kiralyhago Street H -1126 BudapestHUNGARY www.icegec.hTel: +36 1 248-1160 Fax: +36 1 319-0628 u
  • The  Danube  Strategy    thema@c  focus:    The  Danube  itself       The  above  challenges  call  for  innova/ve  solu/ons  in  the  following  sectors/areas:       -­‐  Environment  protec/on,     -­‐  Responsive/smart  materials,     -­‐  Transport  means  and  transport  infrastructure,     -­‐  Logis/cs  and  supply-­‐chains,     -­‐  ICT  manufacturing  (sensors,  etc),   -­‐  ICT  services,     -­‐  Financial  services   -­‐  Educa/on,  provision  of  capable  workforce   -­‐  Business  and  innova/on  friendly  environment   Ques@on:  is  Europe  and  are  the  relevant  countries  innova@ve  enough  in  these  sectors   to  find  the  solu@ons?      5/B Kiralyhago Street H -1126 Budapest  HUNGARY www.icegec.hTel:    +36 1 248-1160 Fax: +36 1 319-0628 u
  • An  important  geographical  aspect  of  the  Danube  strategy:     The  Danube  Strategy  involves:     8   EU   countries   (Germany,   Austria,   Hungary,   Czech   Republic,   Slovak   Republic,   Slovenia,   Bulgaria  and  Romania)  and     6  non-­‐EU  countries  (Croa/a,  Serbia,  Bosnia  and  Herzegovina,  Montenegro,  Ukraine  and   Moldova).   -­‐  Important  to  note,  how  the  geographical  coverage  relate  to  the  Danube  but  covers   a  larger  area,  historically,  economically  interlinked.     -­‐  Two  aspects:  Enlargement  process  of  the  EU  +  European  Neighborhood  Policy   -­‐  For  Hungary,  the  Western  Balkans    and  Ukraine  has  been  key    neighbouring  areas,   crucial  for  a.)  historical-­‐  cultural-­‐social,  b.)  economic-­‐  trade  -­‐  logis/cal  etc.  aspects.     The   Danube   Strategy   offers   a   possibility,   a   chance   to   realise   the   long-­‐awaited   strengthening  of  those  coopera/ons.    5/B Kiralyhago Street H -1126 BudapestHUNGARY www.icegec.hTel: +36 1 248-1160 Fax: +36 1 319-0628 u

  • Crucial  points  to  realise  the  Danube  Strategy:     §   What  are  the  main    ecological-­‐natural  values  that  must  be  preserved  at  any  costs,  and  is  there  any   room  for  compromises  when  it  comes  to  realisa/on  of  economic  advantages?       § What  is  the  maximum  demand  for  inland  waterways  freight  transport  in  Europe,  and  where  are   the  shortcomings  today  in  achieveing  the  realisa/on  of  that?  (regional  economic  development  ,   industry,  agriculture)   § What  are  the  shortcomings  in  terms  of  human  skills,  development  (languages,  ICT,  business   aqtude,  innova/ve  capabili/es)  in  order  to  meet  the  challenges?     § How  can  –  and  there  comes  a  strong  role  for  Networking  Living  Labs!  –  the  role  of  par/cipa/ng   countries  other  than  Germany  be  increased  in  innova/on?     § What  are  the  exis/ng  and  missing  na/onal  policies  and  European  policies  to  meet  our  goals?    What   are  the  best  and  worst  prac/ces?  Are  there  specific  features  related  to  the  different  types  of   innova/on  related  to  the  sectors  men/oned  before?  What  kind  of  measures  can  be  regarded  as  a   support,  or,  on  the  contrary,  as  a  burden  for  innova/on  in  these  sectors?    5/B Kiralyhago Street H -1126 BudapestHUNGARY www.icegec.hTel: +36 1 248-1160 Fax: +36 1 319-0628 u
