The project CE4BIG – Cluster Excellence for Business Innovation and Growth in the Health Sector – funded under the EU COSME “European Cluster Excellence” initiative, aims to foster cluster collaboration on a European-wide scale. The ultimate objective is to strengthen both clusters and SMEs to jointly master global competition and respond to the challenges of personalised medicine.
CE4BIG is happy to announce that the Cluster Xchange platform is ready to be used. Eligible SMEs now have the chance to connect with partners across Europe for a short-term exchange of 3-30 days (excluding travel days).
The goal of ClusterXchange is to facilitate transnational cooperation between clusters and their members to boost their learning with the view to increase the competitiveness of European SMEs. The Cluster Xchange platform gives access to a catalogue of potential European partners, matching partners based on time availability, geography and sector.
It is possible to register as a:
Visiting Organisation –travelling to another country for the exchange
Host Organisation –hosting the visiting organisation in your own premises
- sharing experience and information between participating visiting and host organisations on the obstacles and challenges in a pre-identified area;
- enhancing market access;
- supporting networking and sharing knowledge and experience.
The stay is partly financed by the European Commission through a lump sum paid to the visitors for travel and accommodation expenses. The first step is to register on the ClusterXchange matching tool and Atlanpole Biotherapies will be in touch to discuss your project with you!
