The complexity and pace of change, coupled with the need for integrated system solutions, poses today major challenges for local authorities, which traditionally answered to such needs in a “silos”.
The current situation requires organizational changes and implementation of new innovative technologies. South Poland Cleantech Cluster is trying to provide support for cities, proposing a more integrated approach by creating a platform for regional entrepreneurs to develop and implement the necessary solutions.
