Summary and objectives

Global Cosmetics Clusters - Europe is a partnership of European Cosmetics clusters to boost SMEs international business opportunities toward third markets. It is composed of 6 structures (Cosmetic Valley, Beauty Barcelona Cluster, Transilvania Lifestyle Cluster, Beira Baixa Business Association and Istanbul chemicals and Chemical Products Exporters Association, covering 4 European Member States (FR, ES, RO, PT) and Turkey. 

Our ESCP-4i has set 6 specific objectives:

  • To encourage business, international and R&D cooperation across sectorial boundaries;
  • To focus on supporting SMEs in international accessing markets in particular through an Acceleration Programme tackling these 5 targeted countries;
  • To foster cooperation among cluster organisations and its members in the ESCP-4i;
  • To support the establishment of value chains (in particular in health, digital, agroindustry, circular economy) along with the cosmetics cross-sectorial industry, geared towards international markets, based on inputs and needs from SMEs;
  • To develop a governance system and a common branding for the ESCP-4i to ensure active and sustainable collaboration among the different stakeholders;
  • To promote and increase the visibility of GCC.eu as a cluster representing the whole value chain on cosmetics: Production of plants, raw material or ingredients, beauty brand (cosmetics, perfumes, devices…), manufacturing and formulation, distribution and retail, testing and analysis, packaging, research and training, engineering, machines, tools, instruments.

Results expected

Global Cosmetics Cluster Europe is thus designed for the development (implementation, upscaling, upgrading) of the European Strategic Cluster Partnership–Going International (ESCP-4i), that was created by Cosmetics4Welbeing (C4W), and which is oriented towards increased internationalization and strengthened sustainability of European SMEs.

It proposes an innovative approach to foster the internationalisation of the European and Turkish companies through the development of an Acceleration Programme that will not tackle only the actors of  Cosmetics but will involve the new and cross-sectorial value chains that were identified in the strand 1: Agro-Food, Circular Economy, Health, Industry 4.0 (specially photonics)

The Joint Internationalisation  Strategy  that was set by C4W and will be now improved and  implemented, is targeting five (5) third countries, carefully selected taking into account previous market research and consensus with clusters’ SMEs. These markets are

  • Mexico
  • South Korea,
  • United States of America
  • India
  • United Arab Emirates
