Building cross-border competitiveness

The “Building cross-border competitiveness through partnership and networking“ project aims to assist the development and to promote the cooperation between the ICT business and the ICT intensive companies in the Bulgarian–Serbian cross-border region. The project activities will result in the establishment of a base for knowledge and a research network between ICT related stakeholders within the border region.

The project partners are European Software Institute Center Eastern Europe and the Regional Chamber of Commerce in Nis. The action is co-funded by the EU through the Bulgaria – Serbia IPA Cross-Border Program, the Bulgarian Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works and RPK Nis. The project beneficiaries are ICT SMEs from the border region, training and certification organizations, and ICT policy makers.
ICT companies and organizations from Serbia and Bulgaria are the direct beneficiaries of the project. In the initial project phase the team will elaborate an analysis of the ICT sector in the cross-border region, outlining the needs and the expectations of the ICT companies. The results of the analysis will be used to adjust next project activities to the stakeholders’ needs and address them. Series of workshops will raise the awareness on competitiveness improvement based on quality, integral management models and regional cooperation for the promotion of the ICT industry in the international markets. Furthermore they will be supported with trainings in software process improvement models, establishment of linkages between companies from both sides of the border, joint events aimed at the discussion of suitable approaches towards the solution of challenges, etc. All the activities anticipate a joint participation of companies and organizations from Bulgaria and Serbia. Thus the stakeholders can persistently share ideas and experience.
