ADRION has decided to boost the transfer and re-use of project results by building thematic networks, which allow to exchange practices and create synergies among projects dealing with complemetary thematics. Those networks are called “ADRION Thematic Clusters” and are part of the Programme capitalisation strategy. The areas of each ADRION Thematic Cluster have been identified according to strategic key sectors of development and growth in the Adriatic-Ionian region and following the policy objectives of the new EU Cohesion Policy.
The ADRION Thematic Clusters will help build the critical mass of the Programme in each relevant thematic sector. Projects will exchange on data, information and knowledge in order to improve output’s quality and more importantly, identify common goals. In particular, the ADRION Thematic Clusters (TC) will be aimed to:
- Support the creation of added value for the projects and the Programme by increasing synergies between projects;
- Help the development of thematic analysis and the identification of new areas/fields of intervention to be funded for the future Programming period;
- Help increase the promotion of the projects in a more strategic way: ensure the dissemination and the transferability of project results both beyond the partnership and after the end of the Programme.
ADRION started the capitalization process in 2019 by implementing 5 Thematic Clusters (TC) on the topics of transport, mobility, nature conservation, blue and smart related growth and sustainable tourism. Results of the work carried out in each TC have been compiled in our publication Building Cooperation Together.
In 2021 ADRION further implemented the set-up of 6 new sub-clusters including the projects funded under the 2nd Call.
