We are pleased to invite you to an interesting final conferences of the projects that are addressing pressing issues that are in the center of focus of the priority area 10. They have been granted financing through the Danube Transnational Programme and have been very active in last 2 years and a half.

AgriGo4Cities

AgriGo4Cities project strives to employ Participatory Urban and Peri-urban Agriculture (UPA) as a powerful and emerging method to improve public institutional capacities in order to tackle socio-economic exclusion of vulnerable/marginalized groups and to stimulate sustainable urban development in the Danube region. They have developed an innovative methodology of participatory planning and integrated it into decision-making processes. The conference will bring together scholars, practitioners, NGOs, activists, policymakers and public institutions’ representatives with the aim of discussing on how to integrate participatory approach into public decision-making and how to motivate and empower vulnerable/marginalized groups to become socially and economically more engaged by participating in decision-making processes?

Crowdstream

The project “CrowdStream – Crowdfunding to stream innovation” aims at improving the effectiveness of public/private business support for innovative enterprises to access qualitative alternative financing. Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet. One of CrowdStream´s overall aims was to develop a trans-national quality criteria for Crowdfunding Platforms. It will this way initiate a change in the financing market. Due to quality labelling and capacity building activities there will be a major shift from donation based to equity based crowdfunding.
