The aim of the DA-SPACE project is to create laboratories for open innovations to support young innovators and their ideas in the Danube region, joined by the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (STU) in April.

At the laboratory for open innovations, situated at the Faculty of Informatics and Information Technologies, the chosen innovators will try to turn their ideas into prototypes. They will work under the supervision of industrial experts, mentors and specialists, the SITA newswire reported.

Part of the process will also be the education and training of business skills and the testing of a potential business model.

The problems they will try to solve will be submitted by production and services companies, ministries, regional and municipal authorities, technological and innovation agencies, and other subjects, SITA wrote.

The aim is to strengthen the international and interdepartmental cooperation between universities, business incubators, small and medium-sized enterprises, and public institutions in the region.

The teachers from the STU’s Management Institute, the Faculty of Informatics and Information Technologies, and employees of the University Technological Incubators are expected to participate in the project, SITA reported.
