Bridge technical differences and social suspicions contributing to transform the Adriatic area in a stable hub for a sustainable technological development.

The ADRIA-HUB project, funded under the IPA-ADRIATICO cross-border Cooperation Program, aims to improve research capacity and the degree of industrial innovation throughout the Adriatic area. Through a continuous process of technology transfer, the Universities of the area will promote research and technological development, pushing companies to overcome the current barriers present in the field of innovation and competitiveness.

The purpose of ADRIA-HUB is to promote the creation of a transnational cooperation network between the academic world, business organizations and businesses, with a direct impact on most of the Adriatic area.

The project aims to develop a platform of innovative ICT solutions, able to gather technical information from the Balkan universities and to offer them to companies: the initial test will be carried out in the woodworking sector. The project also promotes the correct positioning on the market of the Adriatic work of qualified human resources, facilitating the employment of graduates and combining personal skills with industrial needs, thus aiming to foster a fertile environment for innovation in the area.
