From the 4th to the 6th of May 2022, i-Trans, French competitiveness cluster of transport, mobility and logistics, welcomed the Polish cluster of composite technologies (PKTK) in Valenciennes.
The ClusterXchange programme is a new pilot programme to support short-term exchanges to better connect Europe’s industrial ecosystems.
It aims at facilitating transnational cooperation, peer learning, networking and innovation uptake between actors of different industrial clusters. It is implemented with support from cluster organizations that have teamed up in ESCP-4x partnerships.
Exchanges are used to:
- Learn from actors in another cluster
- Explore growth opportunities in new markets
- Take up new technologies, digitalization and green low-carbon solutions
- Invest in strategic interregional collaboration
Indeed, the 3-days meeting allowed each partner to present their own organization, activities, specificities, services, members, innovation projects, European projects and perspectives.
Some French companies and partners attended a networking with Polish companies.
Each participant was delighted to share experience and possibilities of cooperation.
The identified steps for future collaboration are to sign a LOI and a cooperation agreement in order to reinforce potential strategic international operations.
We would be both delighted to participate in another clusterXchange!
