Partnership Objectives: 

SMART4NZEB aims at boosting competitiveness and supporting the scaling-up of 577 SMEs active in construction, energy efficiency and renewables sectors through strengthening the capacity-building of 5 representative clusters as drivers of innovation in Central and Eastern Europe (Poland, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia) and facilitating trans-national exchanges and strategic partnerships with a focus on sharing experience between different practices, skills gaps, policies, target goals and level of engagement related to nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB).

Results expected: 

It is expected that SMART4NZEB will create the premises for a long term collaboration, co-learning and capacity building environment for all those involved in the project - cluster managers, cluster members and other relevant stakeholders representative for the nZEB market in the selected Central and East-European countries. Through development of the involved clusters management capacity and support of interregional partnerships, an expected outcome is the enhancement of clusters in terms of better and more innovative & modern approach in addressing cross-sectoral and cross border collaboration, in order to tackle main environmental, economic and social challenges of cluster members. Further and beyond the Project timeframe, it is expected that new perspectives will be created for more competitive products and technological solutions for new and existing buildings, which will also lead to market penetration of nearly zero energy buildings.
