Excellence in Research, Social and Technological Innovation Project Management (ReSTI)

12 partners from 9 countries created the Excellence in Research, Social and Technological Innovation Project Management consortium, led by ZSI from Austria. They form a collaborative learning community with the core purpose of increasing the capacity for excellence in ReSTI project acquisition, planning, and implementation in the Danube Region.

  • Development and implementation of the curriculum and teaching and/or learning methods
  • Establishment and implementation of a helpdesk
  • Creation of strategy and regional roadmaps
  • Increase of employability of young graduates as ReSTI project Managers

The project is primarily oriented towards young ReSTI project managers, as well as administrators in public and private organizations engaged in ReSTI projects, within the Danube Region. Additionally, available know-how within partner institutions regarding ReSTI project management is to be shared with the civil society and small businesses, as well as young graduates as first-time applicants to transnational and multicultural projects.

Development of ReSTI learning modules, roadmaps and strategy, as well as the helpdesk is to benefit the wider community within the Danube region. Hence, project stakeholders include education and training centres, as well as higher education institutions who will benefit from the developed curriculum. Public authorities, other decision makers and NGOs can notice the importance that the development of strategy and regional roadmaps hold for successfully directing public policy decisions in this area. Sustainability of the project is guaranteed since the developed learning modules will be built into existing curricula after the project ends in July 2019.
