The ‘Towards Green Transition’ Facility is a new initiative by the European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP) to enable clusters registered at the ECCP to promote green transition skills amongst their members through technical advisory support by highly qualified advisors.
In this Facility, selected clusters will be trained and advised on a range of green transition topics so they can support their cluster members (especially SMEs) to become more resource efficient. Services will be tailor-made and focused on the specific needs and challenges of each selected cluster.
The intended benefits of ‘Towards Green Transition’ include:
- Improved resource efficiency of European SMEs within ECCP clusters;
- Support for green entrepreneurship through hands-on technical advice and support;
- Best use of opportunities for greener and more efficient value (supply) chains; and
- Facilitated market access for green SMEs within clusters.
The types of technical support range from one-on-one teaching, guidance documents and direct consultancy to workshops and webinars. Resilient business models, sustainable investments, energy efficiency, waste management, circular economy and sustainable innovation are some of the fields beneficiaries will be advised on.
