Summary and objectives

SENTINEL is a cluster network enabling SMEs going international, integrating themselves in a global value chain, towards emerging markets in the hospitality sector. 

The clusters in this partnership are all involved in developing a long-term partnership in order to help their SMEs in exploring, identifying, selecting and acquiring market intelligence on new and emerging markets where the hospitality sector has a huge growth and therefore in finding market opportunities outside Europe. Another aim is to enable their SME members to acquire capacities to start an internationalization process to enter in a successful manner the selected markets. And also taking part to a common cross-sectoral internationalization strategy with SME members of complementary clusters, and integrate them in a global value chain for the hospitality sector within this partnership.

Results expected

  • To develop a joint internationalization strategy for the Partnership with European clusters having SME members with common goals, in the hospitality sector, to study and enter specific third markets and supporting them to a better approach to those
  • To develop a roadmap for implementation and facilitating the internationalisation of SME members of the partners
  • To build a sustainable cooperation framework for the SME members of the clusters in the partnership evidenced by a common brand, strategy and support system in their internationalization process
  • To integrate the value chain of each individual cluster to a global value chain including an adequate number of complementary clusters with SME members interested or operating in the hospitality contract industry in order to gain an adequate critical mass to become a global long-term strong alliance.
