Call for Proposals “Clusters Go International”
The main objective of this action is to intensify cluster and business network collaboration across borders and also across sectorial boundaries and to support the establishment of European Strategic Cluster Partnerships to lead international cluster cooperation in fields of strategic interest towards third countries beyond Europe.This action promotes cluster internationalisation where interested consortia develop and implement a joint internationalisation strategy, common goals towards specific third markets and support SME internationalisation towards third countries beyond Europe.
This action will contribute to increasing the number and strength of European Strategic Cluster Partnerships Going International (ESCP-4i) and help European SMEs access new global value chains and take a leading position globally.
