Why become a Member?
International Cleantech Network has a proven track record of providing added value for its members on several levels. Contracts have been negotiated during ICN meetings and network events, as well as carrying out common projects (such as EC2i, an EU COSME program) amongst the cluster members of ICN. Besides that, we support the SMEs of the clusters through a number of services, including ICN Passport, ICN Challenges, and ICN Newsflash.  

The ICN Passport service is a special service that allows for ICN members to exploit business opportunities abroad using other clusters as a one-stop-entry, using the cluster facilities as a working station, meeting facilities and to get valuable contacts from a cluster that knows the local network. ICN Challenges is a tender service that connects projects cities and organizations with solution providers from the ICN members. Further, ICN has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the World Alliance of Efficient Solutions, with the objective of connecting SMEs with the World Alliance’s “1000 Efficient Solutions” label.  

ICN is also the perfect meeting place for exchanging knowledge about cluster management and the newest developments in the cleantech world. Subsequently, ICN has been recognized in a number of reports as a network that contributes significantly to the green growth on the global stage.

When becoming an ICN member you will have access partners, markets, and expertise.
