The work program shall deliver a joint ‘European’ strategic vision with a global perspective and common goals and actions towards specific third markets selected as high priority, as well as an implementation roadmap. Both the partnership agreement and internationalisation strategy that are aimed for in the mark of the project shall intensify the cluster and business network collaboration across European countries and internationally, across sectoral boundaries and notably in support of the development of emerging industries such as geothermal energy.
As reflected in the consortium composition, made of 4 clusters in applied geoscience or geo-energy at large and 4 business network organisations specialized in geothermal energy, the 2 years program will primarily target the planned networking activities, cross-sectorial skill & technology transfers, market studies and strategic planning towards the promotion of the emerging deep geothermal energy industry, in line with the European and most national energy transition goals.
The metacluster will however be designed in the most agile and open way, so as to further allow a broadening of its scope towards other emerging sectors (e.g. geological storage of CO2 and energy) and promote partnerships with targeted markets or with other sectors.
