Call for the expression of interest: Towards European Strategic Cluster Partnerships for smart specialisation investments
The European Commission's Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs invites cluster organisations, other business network organisations, technology centres and science parks interested to team up around specific industrial thematic areas, in the context of industrial modernisation.
Through a dedicated call for the expression of interest, the aim is to mobilise European Strategic Cluster Partnerships for smart specialisation investments (ESCP-S3). This call is linked to the establishment of the Smart Specialisation Platform on Industrial Modernisation and Investment and is envisaged to strengthen industry participation and inter-regional collaboration in the implementation of smart specialisation strategies.
To find out more about the partnering process, its wider context, potential benefits as well as how to express your interest, please see the full text of the call for the expression of interest.
The partnering process via the partner search tool of the European Cluster Collaboration Platform will open in May 2016 and remains open until 31 March 2017 (Deadline extended!)
