RE-CENTRE - cRoss-sEctoral Cluster approach for higher CompEtitiveNess through digiTal, gReen transition and rEsilience / Traditional manufacturing and technological sectors (IT&Green) SMEs teaming up, acquiring know-how and competences for future challenges.
RE-CENTRE concept relies on the 3 involved sectors’ main need to revise and develop their sectoral business models towards a higher resilience and growth in competitiveness. The Covid-19 challenge has led the 3 sectors to jointly reflect on their potential and understand that only thanks to a deep level of cross-sectoral and cross-cluster collaboration the constraints deriving from diversity (traditional non-tech. oriented and very tech. oriented sectors) can be overcome and turned into distinctive innovation opportunities.
RE-CENTRE, through the systemic cooperation of 2 clusters related to traditional sectors (P1-DID, P2-CENFIM), 1 related to the Green sector (P3-GSC) and 1 to the IT sector (P4-CLUJIT), develops around 5 main action areas, interpreted as 5 seeds for supporting SMEs in rooting on the market towards higher resilience and business stability.
WP1 - TEXERE / Map&Relate, Analysis&Feedback / NETWORK;
WP2 – Closing the loops towards autonomy / INNOVATE;
WP3 – From ideas to PoCs / ADOPT PROCESSES & TECHNOLOGIES;
WP4 – Growth of competences/acquisition of working tools / TRAIN;
WP5 – Expand, Promote, Compete / GO INTERNATIONAL)
5 macro seeds that will be sown in the ground – RE-CENTRE innovation ecosystem mapped in its complexity in WP1 with the objective of supporting the rooting of SMEs towards a higher resilience, digitalization and sustainability.
RE-CENTRE develops through 30 months along 5 key technical phases with the addition of Management & Coordination (WP7) and Dissemination & Communication (WP6).
