Project name Support SME competitiveness through clusterhouses
Objective Objective 1.1
Priority Innovation and knowledge development
Aim The aim of our project is to support SME competitiveness through providing them goods and services through clusterhouses. These cluster houses will also provide a platform for incubator houses. The base for these cluster houses will be primarily twin city connections, however other settlements are also welcome. There is already a well-operating clusterhouse in Hungary which will provide the base know-how and it will be adapted to the local environments with the support of local authorities. The members of the consortium will share experience in order to fine-tune this concept at each location.
Results We expect the improvement of SME competitiveness through providing support services and also the opportunity of building international relations though the cluster houses.
