The Project

The DANS Model is a Quadruple Helix model that is especially suitable to innovation processes where citizens’ needs are central. The partnership will communicate the story of the DANS Model via a range of media channels and show how regions in the NSR can adapt the model to increase society’s capacity for innovation. DANS ON consists of partners from Sweden, Germany, Norway, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

The DANS ON project will build on and promote the DANS Model; one of the main results of the Digital Agenda for the North Sea (DANS) Cluster project.

The aim of the DANS ON project is to disseminate how the DANS Model stimulates innovation in the North Sea Region by demonstrating how the DANS Model has been applied and implemented in practice.

Through three Work Packages (WPs) the DANS ON project will communicate WHY the DANS Model should be used in practice in innovation processes and HOW the DANS Model can be applied. This will lead to wider communication of the DANS Model, dissemination of “the story of the DANS Model”, demonstration of how different partners can make use of the DANS Model in new contexts and declaration of the DANS Model’s ability to contribute to European, national and regional policies. The DANS Model’s adaptability and transferability will be a central theme of the project.
