ClusterXchange in Romania – 04 to 08 July 2022 [ENG]

pRO-nZEB is organizing a five days ClusterXchange event in Romania between the 04th and 08th of July 2022.

The event aims at bringing together organisations (members of clusters or business networks) from Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, and Poland for mutual learning activities, such as twinning, networking, B2B meetings and so on. Among other, this is a great opportunity for those who participate to exchange knowledge and expertise among each other and to expand their network in the region.

Learning activities are included as well, such as workshops, site visits, training sessions, and coaching activities, which target both cluster organisations and their members (in particular SMEs).

Visiting Organisations from Serbia, Slovenia and Poland may receive up to 560 EUR (lump sum) as financial support for 3rd parties. This is meant to encourage organisations to participate in the event, while covering expenses related to travelling, accommodation and so on – this may be paid only after the ClusterXchange event is carried out successfully and if all the ESCP-4X requirements are met (based on the ESCP-4x Quality Manual).

Eligible Organisations to receive financial support
• all cluster organisations and business network organisations from COSME participating countries
• scaling-up support organisations (this category includes technology centres, research institutes, fab labs, (digital) innovation hubs, creative hubs, resource-efficiency service providers, incubators and accelerators.
