The stakeholders of the InnovaSPA project, who are taking part in the preparation of the Action Plan will meet again as because of the COVID-19 project partners had to delay the study visits planned for semester 4.

Of course, we were in continuous communication with the Lead Partner and with the Joint Secretariat and this meeting will give us the opportunity to inform the stakeholders about the new deadlines and to make some discussion about how can we adapt to the requirements.

The work will go on, even though it is not clear yet, which Programming Period can be influenced in reality. As of today, the Regional Action Plan should be ready by February 2021, and for that time the preparation of the Economic Development and Innovation Operational Program (GINOP) 2021-2027 will hopefully be ready, the Managing Authority suggests to plan for that period.

Anyway the hard work of the stakeholders should be based on the study visits, so we all keep our fingers crossed that the next visits can be implemented in the situation where rules are changing from day to day.

We all look forward to the suggestions of our extra stakeholder meeting !
