PROJECT OBJECTIVE:

The Smart Communities Project – a virtual education, research, development and innovation network in the Slovak-Hungarian border area started in May 2017 and was successfully finished in April 2019 . The main objective of the project was to contribute to the strengthening of intellectual property in the disadvantaged cross-border area in southern Slovakia and northern Hungary through the establishment and dissemination of innovative cooperation structures as a practical implementation of social and ethnic innovation. The project brought real, practical alternatives and motivation for the implementation of radical innovations in various areas of development at the local level – economic, educational, community, professional and environmental, to the marginalized part of the population in the cross-border area (Nitriansky, Banskobystrický, Košický region and Nogradska region). Our concept assumed that the region can escape the unfavorable situation through implementing activities based on endogenous development and intelligent communities. The prioritized sectors of the project were education and research, development and innovation with a focus on sustainability and information and communication technologies.
