DanuBalt: Unlocking better use of EU and regional instruments in the Baltic Sea Region and the Danube area.
The potential of health innovation in modest and moderate innovator regions needs attention to several issues. In particular, the mechanisms that are central to unlocking better use of EU and regional instruments are health innovation enablers. these are being indetified for the Basltic Sea Region and the Danube Area in the EU H2020 project DanuBalt. read the two reports:
DanuBalt Working Paper 1: 17 individual health innovation enablers were identified from 39 papers/reports that met selection criteria specific to innovation enablers.
These enablers operating at the three levels: ecosystem (n=5), intermediary (n=8) and organisational (n=4). The T-Spectrum developed by the Harvard Catalyst initiative provides a framework for understanding where these enablers can best be located to contribute to driving cost effective, locally relevant health innovation systems with comparable evaluation of core enablers while also accounting for optional local enablers.

DanuBalt Summary Report 1:This online survey was the second step in developing a consensus framework for health innovation enablers in modest and moderate innovator regions in the Baltic Sea and Danube Macro-Regions.
The survey asked stakeholders to review an initial set of enabler criteria identified previously (Working Paper 1).This survey confirmed that the availability of data to measure the performance of health innovation enablers at the three levels (ecosystem, intermediary and organisational) within regions is patchy.
A minority of respondents said data is available and reported. For sure, there is a need to agree on and activate a core set of health innovation enablers in modest and moderate innovator regions.
