Platforms of cooperation

Given the huge range of thematic industries that affect global climate change (see What is Cleantech), SPCleantech has decided to focus its efforts on coordinating the actions of its members and partners and integrating them into thematic platforms of cooperation.

Within the framework of the platform there are 4 types of cluster members: large companies and SMEs, universities and scientific research units, local self-government units (JST) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). In addition, to these thematic platforms, selected key external partners are invited.

The activities of the cooperation platforms are based on regular, thematic meetings in the form of Business Mixers, organization of trainings, workshops and conferences and the creation of consortia around selected topics with the possibility of applying for EU funds available in the country or directly in the European Union.
