A well-structured and professionally supported dialogue of practitioners from all relevant disciplines is driving the process of identifying, assessing and programming innovation in the Danube region. This dialogue is built on first-hand experience and state of the art knowledge, and refined in an iterative process, enriched by other key-stakeholders, such as flood mitigation experts from the industry and academia, and representatives of the relevant political/institutional actors, namely the European Commission and related programmes, such as the EU Strategy for the Danube River, as well as the relevant national, regional and local authorities.

This dialogue is facilitated by the DAREnet Community. It is a truly collaborative environment bringing together practitioners, researchers, industry representatives and decision makers, to identify and analyse the most relevant innovation gaps, and to translate the gaps into a joint innovation strategy to improve flood resilience in the future.
