Summary and objectives
SmartSports4GoodLife is a project co-financed by the European Commission COSME Program under the European Strategic Sports Clusters Partnership, which focuses on the need to jointly face the European sports industry challenges for the next years.
SmartSports4GoodLife continues the cooperation and collaboration among European sports clusters to provide and create new business opportunities for SMEs and strengthen clusters management capabilities to transfer knowledge to SMEs. The project is aimed to foster SMEs competitiveness by exploiting cross-sectorial synergies and developing innovative products and services related to technology, energy, tourism and health, with the ultimate goal to address the main challenges the sector is facing in Europe and advance in the digitalisation process, sustainability and the promotion of circular economy and low carbon solutions.
These aims will be achieved through the engagement of SMEs and stakeholders in webinars and workshops on relevant strategic issues for the sports sector, but particularly in the ClusterXChange program, which involves visits to other sports SMEs and stakeholders, B2B, matchmaking and networking events at regional and European levels.
The alliance is made up of five European partners (INDESCAT from Catalonia, Spain; Cluster Montagne, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France; Cluster Sports & Technology, the Netherlands; MSE Cluster, Hungary), and European Platform for Sport Innovation - EPSI, Belgium).
