About DITAK (South Great Plain Innovation Business Network)

Due to the expansion of knowledge-economy and increasing market competition, the cooperation between organizations and network operations has a key role. Innogrant Consulting institutionalized its cooperative work with its research and business strategic partners for the sake of compliance with challenges and reaching the goals written above, even with the utilization of subvention opportunities provided by the research policy of the EU. Members of the DITAK  Business Innovation Network - based on previous cooperation and years of experience - realized that with the organization of innovation and activities more complex and competitive services are feasible, and with this higher costumer demands will be met.

The aim and intention of the founders was to establish such an organization that is able to facilitate the incubation of small and medium-sized enterprises by providing complex service packages; that is able to establish spin-off enterprises by taking advantage of the connections of university and research units. Furthermore, it is able to reveal the break-out points of firms with innovation potential. By means of these activities, the network can fulfill a very serious role in the promotion of local employment and we hope that it can contribute to the improvement of the region’s competitiveness.  
The foundation of DITAK-cooperation is the integration of additional competences necessary on the counseling market in order to achieve synergy-effect, critical mass, the economies of scale, and the optimal exploitation of capacities along with effective lobbying.
