European project Alps4EU: Assessment Methodology and Results published – Overcoming the fragmentation of clusters in the Alpine Space
Alps4EU - another European project related to cluster initiatives in the context of international challenges and global competition. Alsp4EU is funded by the Alpine Space Programme 2007-2013, as part of the "European Territorial Cooperation.
The objective of Alps4EU is to connect clusters in the Alpine region more closely and to overcome their fragmentation by specifically strengthening cluster initiatives, favouring the emergence of trans-regional meta-clusters. Moreover, the Alpine clusters’ competitiveness needs to be enhanced and clearly positioned as a European cluster, enjoying worldwide recognition, for the benefit of the region’s economy.
The project concentrates on clusters in four key sectors: Energy and Green Tech; Mechatronics and Engineering; Chemistry and New Materials; ICT.
The aim of the project will be reached by developing a trans-regional cluster strategy addressing policy makers, cluster managers and industry partners.
