South Poland Cleantech Cluster

is a collaborative ‘quadruple helix’ cluster established by cleantech industry, research institutions, public/semi-state players and NGOs in the region of Southern Poland, with a vision to create Central Europe’s leading and at the same time one of the most competitive cleantech clusters in the world. This will deliver superior innovation and co-create a facilitating for the introduction of cleantech technologies and services across sectors.

Only a combination of technologies and working partnerships of expertise, including integrated water systems, renewable energy, intelligent grids, smart city solutions and waste treatment systems can deliver sustainable, multi-sectoral solutions.

The vision of the cluster is implemented by building and developing the potential of 10 cooperation platforms:

  • industry 4.0
  • Smart City / sustainable urban development / e-mobility
  • intelligent buildings / management systems / ecological building materials
  • energy efficiency
  • smart grid / green energy
  • VR / AR / MR
  • Big Data
  • internet of things / internet of everything
  • bio-economy
  • circular economy
