EEsAA Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Alpe Adria





EEsAA Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Alpe Adria is a project funded under the Interreg V ITALIA AUSTRIA Program (Priority Axis 1 - Research and Innovation; Thematic Objective 1 - Strengthening research, technological development and innovation).
In recent years, the battle for "talents" has intensified globally, increasing the outflow of young entrepreneurs and innovative companies from cross-border areas to more attractive ecosystems. Another critical aspect is the low level of external / internal connections in the region and the need to strengthen innovation networks for better cooperation.

To address the above, the EES AA project will be a pioneer in connecting entrepreneurial hubs and local start-ups in a cross-border Cluster, where technology parks, universities, incubators and co-working play a central role in the joint promotion of the Alpe Adria entrepreneurial ecosystem as destination for the best innovative companies in the region visible globally.
