The ClusterXchange platform has gone online and is ready for use. Eligible SMEs now have the possibility to get in touch with partners all over Europe for a short-term exchange.
The objective of ClusterXchange is to support transnational cooperation between clusters and their members, to promote mutual learning and thus to increase the competitiveness of European SMEs. The ClusterXchange platform provides access to potential European partners, which are brought together according to time availability, geography and sector. It is implemented with support from cluster organisations that have teamed up in European Strategic Cluster Partnerships for Excellence (ESCP-4x).
The ClusterXchange scheme is part of professional cluster services within the the project CE4BIG – Cluster Excellence for Business Innovation and Growth in the Health Sector. It aims to foster cluster collaboration on a European-wide scale and was selected to receive funding under the EU COSME “European Cluster Excellence” initiative.
