EU Cluster Partnerships

One concept, two objectives

The European Strategic Cluster Partnerships have been launched by the European Commission through financial incentives (under COSME programme) to encourage clusters from Europe to intensify collaboration across regions and sectors.

These EU cluster partnerships are expected to pool resources and knowledge with a view to work concretely together on joint strategies. The objective is to undertake actions in the common interest of their SME members.

The ultimate goal of this action is to boost economic growth and competitiveness in Europe.

The European Strategic Cluster Partnerships are labelled by the European Commission, DG Growth following specific COSME calls.
