Our project will end soon (January 31, 2024) and we are happy to see the results of the activities carried out.

One of the most important programs was that of ClusterXChange, which involved short-term visits for visiting organizations (SMEs, clusters, scale-up organizations, large companies, public companies, etc.)

During the 2 years of project implementation, the 5 partner clusters organized:

11 ClusterXchanges in 8 different locations (London, Amsterdam, Rimini, Ancona, Munich, Frankfurt, Milan, Ruse, Bucharest, Vienna, Stockholm, Helsinki, Lyon, Istanbul, Florence).
79 visiting organizations participated in ClusterXchanges,
The visiting organizations received a lump sum (financial contribution from the European Union, through the CLOTH project) available for visitors for travel and accommodation expenses, up to a maximum of EUR 1,100 per visiting organization (depending on the destination).

Exchanges could last from three working days up to 5 days.

The program aimed to:

Facilitate the exchange of experiences and best practices among SMEs and clusters.
Create synergies among different stakeholders
Establish new Cooperation Agreements among SMEs.
Strengthen the collaboration between clusters and SMEs.
CLOTH project – CLuster Alliance fOr the Transition to green and digital fashion – is the newest European alliance within the Fashion sector, aiming to create a favorable ecosystem of relevant stakeholders, from a cross-sectoral perspective, that lead to a greener, smarter and more competitive and innovative European Fashion sector. In order to achieve these objectives, CLOTH partners will develop and organize a series of activities.
