InnoCAPE

Industry 4: transforming innovation ecosystem through better capacity of public enablers

The InnoCAPE project designs a cooperation model to develop a digital innovation ecosystem in the Baltic Sea region by exploiting the potential of the continuous digitalisation of value chains called Industry 4.0. The project helps public authorities create favourable conditions for digital innovation hubs (DIHs) that serve as intermediary bodies bringing together Research & Development and industry into digital industrial platforms. By bridging existing gaps, DIHs can efficiently implement Industry 4.0 policies, contribute to a better connected digital single market, and improve competitiveness of the region.

The project will pursue the objectives of:

  • increasing knowledge, skills and competence of public authorities and DIHs;
  • identifying case studies of successful policies regarding DIHs, learning from digitalisation strategies in SMEs, organising workshops to address the skills gap of public enablers;
  • developing an integrated digital maturity assessment tool, enabling benchmarking of BSR countries and helping to identify areas of strategic policy intervention.

Project Duration: 2019 - 2021
Budget: 2 501 050 EUR (including the budget for Tartu City Government: 48 675 EUR)

Safe and Sustainable Citizen Society

Programme: Europe for Citizens 2014-2020
Project Duration: December 2014 - January 2016
Budget: 5,000 EUR
Lead Partner: Tartu City Government
Project Partners:

  • Tartu Consumer Advise and Information Centre (Estonia)
  • Baltic Environmental Forum, Stockholm (Sweden)
  • Turvalisuus ja kemikaalivirasto (Finland)
  • Latvian National Association for Consumer Protection (Latvia)
  • Western Lithuania Consumer Federation (Lithuania)

Objectives:

The main goal of the project was to strengthen the cooperation and exchange of best practices between Nordic and Baltic countries, in order to move towards more active society with safer consumer products. It was achieved via facilitating contacts between citizens of Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and organising seminars in Stockholm (Sweden) and in Tartu (Estonia), to share relevant experiences.

It is important to know that chemicals are all around us, from natural chemicals in food to industrially produced ones, distributed by trade and by long-range transport, found in both working environments and in consumer products. Although in the short-term they may ease our everyday life, some of them may at the same time cause allergies, have negative effects on the reproductive system or show carcinogenic, teratogenic or chronic toxic effects. Therefore, the management of chemicals risks is a high priority issue at both European and international level.
