Naturef.eu: The main objective of Natureef  is to intensify cluster and business network collaboration across cluster consortia members to support the establishment of European Strategic Cluster Partnership to lead international cluster cooperation in the field Natural Resource Efficiency. Natureef– project promotes natural resources efficiency business in South America, Asia and ASEAN Countries for enterprises based in Natureef cluster consortium countries. Project provides an opportunity for SMEs in the field of Natural resource efficiency technology who are interested in the target country markets to develop their marketing and networking. The project will also improve the networking of research and development organizations and their cooperation with third countries actors. Furthermore, the project will develop and strengthen the cooperation among the cluster and SMEs members as a result of B2B meetings and the SMEs collaboration in the working groups

Plant Intercluster (PIC) : The Plant InterCluster has almost 10 years and built a strong international network with clusters around those sectors: cider, cereals, fruit and vegetables, ornamental horticulture, medicinal plants, mushrooms, seeds and winegrowing.This international and sectorial network works thanks to a common vision and motivation from its stakeholders. Born in France with 3 Plant clusters, in 2018, even if the coordination remains in the hands of VEGEPOLYS VALLEY, 5 others European clusters joined the steering committee.

TRACE KEI: The objective of the TRACE-KEI project was to strengthen the cluster management, in terms of defining the medium and long-term development strategy and improving the quality of services offered to associated SMEs. In fact, through project activities (ie joint training and study visits), Cluster Managers will have the skills and tools necessary to strengthen the aspects related to cluster management. In terms of strategy development, cluster managers will be more familiar with value chain analysis and market forecasting, in terms of future development trends and compatibility with partners and SME expectations. The FEMAC cluster management team mentored TRACE-KEI participants during 2017 and 2018.

AERCIV: Working Group made by 5 EU clusters ( AUTOKLASTR -CZ, COMET SRL- IT, AC SERBIA-RS, and Kunststoff DIALOG-DE, is focused on the electric vehicle , which objective is to see knowledge-based enterprises grow and thrive along with the value chain of electrical vehicles, especially for agricultural machinery, and civil works.
