DOROTHY addresses urban logistics by developing an innovative RTD agenda, which will be beneficial to the European co-operation network set up across the research-driven clusters. This network will enable the transfer of good practices from one region to the other, not only within the project itself but also – via other European networks and associations for technological transfers – to other regions across Europe.

To support these actions the project is structured by the following steps:

Analysis and integration of research agendas of actors in Regional Clusters

Definition of a Joint Action Plan (JAP) for RTD and innovation in Regions -technological framework

Definition of a Joint Action Plan (JAP) for RTD and innovation in Regions – implementation framework

Definition of a Joint Action Plan (JAP) for RTD and innovation in Regions – benefit framework

Mentoring of new clusters and measures towards the implementation of the Joint Action Plan

Dissemination and networking

Actions for the internationalization of the Regional Clusters
