Promotion
Success Story / Achievements: 

232 companies involved in cluster activities, 186 supported in the evaluation and implementation of innovation projects, 150 companies supported in the participation and management of projects, services and feasibility studies for innovation.

Participation in relevant thematic european platforms (E2B - Energy to Building, JTI-FCH, HyER) and innovation/cluster networks (GIN - Global Innovation Network).

 

Why should partners choose you for cooperation?: 

The cluster management (Environment Park and Consorzio UNIVER) has a long term and appreciated experience in business matching activities (BtoB), both on private market that in the framework of GPP and PPI (Public Procurement for Innovation) initiatives.

The cluster can give the opportunity to access to collaborative projects and develop new partnership, thanks to its national and european network of innovation and business accelerators in the energy and clean technologies sector.

Environment Park can also offer its own laboratories, test sites and technical know how for innovation projects of cluster members.
