Section 1.  SMART Management for Investment Projects

Series of dramatic changes regarding the financing rules, bureaucratic procedures and investment opportunities are to happen in the immediate period. The new structure of Public Private Partnerships, the mix of financial sources and the increasing importance of the institutional lobby are to be more taking into account by stakeholders, mainly by consultants and managers.

The new EU way of thinking, concentrating the economic development within special macro-regions – Baltic Sea, Danube Region, Adriatic and Black Seas -, are to determine new type of co-operation between public and private partners and a much more pragmatic approach in order to improve the competitiveness capacity, especially in our new tripartite area of collaboration between Bulgaria, Serbia and Romania.

These new trends require concrete measures through consultation between regions, cities and towns, and also a faster standardisation vision concerning the main investment projects in our macro-region in the various fields supported by the four EUSDR pillars, mainly concerning the urban development, the fight against climate changes, the promotion of a new green tourism, the insurance of a more secure political and economic environments for all Danubian partners.


Section 2. The new role of Entrepreneurial Education for promoting the macro-regional economic relaunching

The entire educational system in Europe is at the cross-road, especialy regarding its capacity to respond to the market needs and to the needed transmition of ethic values to the next generations. The inner conflict between the hyper-specialisation and the concern for cultivating a moral responsability to the young people became a major obstacle to be trespass in the future years. This means that academia and especially universities should open much more to concrete innovation at all levels, using the co-operation with the business sector and local communities as an educational vector.

For these reasons, in view of rebuilding the credibility and social role of academia in our Danube and Black Sea regions, we aim to formulate clear direction of action and present pragmatic recommendations towards universities and the business sector.  In this respect, we have to much better use the EU financing programs as COSME, Creative Europe, Horizon 2020 and the territorial co-operation programs (such as SEE and Black Sea programs) and integrate especially the German and Austria best practices concerning the dual education in Romania and our related area.
