Cluster Strategy

With its Open Innovation focus, the Systematic Paris-Region international competitiveness cluster is there to bring together and promote an ecosystem of excellence that counts over 800 members. Systematic connects stakeholders from software, digital and industry, and boosts digital projects through collaborative innovation, SME development, networking and business sourcing, across a range of future growth sectors: energy, telecoms, healthcare, transport, information systems, factory of the future, digital city, and security. The cluster is also there to promote its members, its region and its innovation projects, with the aim of raising their profile and enhancing the attractiveness of the geographical territory and ecosystem.

Building Enterprises – Wireless and Internet Security in European Regions (Be Wiser) examines the organisation and technical research challenges in some of Europe’s best known RTD regions.

The technology focus is on wireless Internet security, while the organisational challenge is to more effectively utilise Triple Helix clusters in regional innovation processes. This approach will strengthen Europe’s position in wireless rollout and address the challenges set out in the Digital Agenda.

With the rapid expansion in wireless based devices, many undertaking complex and often highly confidential transactions, the security of data transmission is increasingly important as trillions of objects are connected via the Internet of Things.

The need for fully secure systems cannot be overstated in retaining the confidence of all users and to balance the requirements of Citizens, Government and Enterprises in terms of their privacy and security needs. Failure to do so risks Europe not fully exploiting new opportunities and falling behind in terms of technology rollout, innovation and job creation at the global level.

The clusters involved in this project are both central and peripheral and have strong technological complementary skills and experience – they have varying levels of organisational sophistication in terms of how they manage their innovation processes and recognise the potential to mentor each other while working collaboratively on RTD challenges. They are integrated into EU and international networks and can enhance the competitiveness of their members.

Be Wiser will:

  • Analyse the regions involved and the sector addressed via triple helix clusters bringing policy makers, researchers and enterprises together to focus on innovation processes and RTD;
  • Develop a Joint Action Plan as well as smart specialisation strategies and identify further research and product opportunities as part of broader economic development strategies;
  • Deliver tangible outputs that will enhance the competitiveness of the clusters,
  • Seek new market opportunities for regional enterprises, especially SMEs;
  • Mentor all partner regions on technology, business and clustering themes.
  • Develop a sustainable business and resourcing plan.
Success Story / Achievements: 

« Smart City China »

Testing joint international marketing approach for Systematic SMEs

China and the smart city market in China are both complex and challenging
7 Systematic SMEs recruited for the purpose of the Smart City China mission needed to agree upon a common marketing approach
Mutualisation of marketing tools (in this case production of an animated short video) had never been done before
Involvement of a large corporate representative in the mission was both an advantage as it added weight and credibility to the delegation but required also extra work and effort to ensure that objectives could be aligned for mutual business benefits
Has proved the value and advantages of such joint marketing approach involving both SMEs and large corporate for international market approach
