Partnership Objectives
Partnership Objectives: 

CROSSCUT is an European Strategic Cluster Partnership on Sustainable Construction that aims to promote the clusters' business network collaboration across borders and sectoral boundaries, creating a radical change in the construction value chain by bringing together complementary clusters using the Circular Economy and Industry 4.0 principles.

The Habitat value chain involves SMEs and other agents from the extractive industry to the construction materials and products industry linking the construction and refurbishment activities as well as other suppliers of solutions and equipments that are involved in our Habitat build up, from buildings to cities and infrastructures. Sustainable Construction is the driving force to change this value chain and accelerate the competitiveness of SMEs internationally.
