ClusterXchange webinar introducing the pilot scheme and its internationalisation goals

Launched in 2020, ClusterXchange (CXC) is a pilot scheme that aims to foster internationalisation, transnational collaboration and networking, peer-learning, and innovation-oriented activities among cluster organisations and their members.

In its pilot phase, the scheme foresaw the implementation of virtual and transnational physical exchanges between different actors from the ICT, mobility, textile, packaging, energy and railway industries. As the scheme starts looking towards its second phase, the ClusterXchange Support Office (SO) , DG GROW and EISMEA will host two webinars for the European Cluster Partnerships │ Excellence (Partnerships) and future and former participants of CXC.

The next webinar on 28 October 2021 at 15:00 CEST is for clusters and their members to learn more about ClusterXchange and how the scheme aims to boost inter-cluster and international mobility.

The session will include speakers from sister initiatives who will share their knowledge and experiences as facilitators of international cooperation and internationalisation of SMEs, start-ups and other organisations.

The event is free and open to all audiences and the preliminary agenda can be found here:
