MACES participated the European Cluster Matchmaking Event organized by the ECCP (European Cluster Collaboration Platform) in Brussels on 30.11.2016.
About 110 clusters, representing over 10.000 SME's from 20 European countries, participated the Matchmaking event having 500 meetings altogether. It was a unique opportunity for MACES to explore common areas of interest for cooperation and establishment of new partnerships.
ECCP platform helps the clusters to build complementary skills in terms of specialization in specific industry sector, value chain and market focus. Participation was an excellent opportunity to find partners and engage collaborations for upcoming project calls, including H2020 INNOSUP1 projects, Cluster Excellence projects, ESCP-S3 (European Strategic Cluster Partnerships for Smart Specialization Investments), ESCP-4i (Go International), and many others.
The membership in the ECCP platform qualify MACES to participate in many projects initiated by cluster interest groups from the whole Europe.
