A series of “Innovation Workshops”, has been launched as part of the project activities, aiming at active partnership building through a broad, overarching theme of “Smart Communities”. This workshop No.2 is twinned with the No.1 in Brussels on 13 October 2014. While Workshop No.1 focused on the upstream side of the innovation value chain, identification of issues, ideation, and team building, Workshop No.2 will look at the downstream side, getting funding and bringing research results into market, especially in the ICT related fields.
