Vanguard Initiative Workshop and Innovation & Manufacturing Brokerage Event 2019 in Santiago de Compostela

 |  Category: SPCleantech News

From November 4 to November 8, 2019, an employee of South Poland Cleantech Cluster, Karolina Najder, participated in a trip to Santiago de Compostela at the Vanguard Initiative Workshop and Innovation & Manufacturing Brokerage Event 2019 as part of the Intelligent Małopolska Foundation: Awangarda Initiative in Małopolska Foundation.

The goal of the project is to support international cooperation of Małopolska entrepreneurs and clusters (achieving TRL 8-9 level by their business projects), increasing the competitiveness and innovation of the Małopolska economy, limiting the key deficits of the Małopolska economy (low demand for innovation, small investment outlays of enterprises, including R&D) and contributing to maintaining and improving the competitiveness of the European production sector.

For South Poland Cleantech Cluster, the trip proved to be a very good opportunity to establish international contacts, which will probably result in cooperation in writing joint project applications for EU funds. Due to the fact that the Małopolska region is involved in the Avant-garde Initiative, Karolina presented a cluster presentation during the event. These types of presentations are always an excellent form of promotion and give the opportunity to establish international cooperation.

The Małopolska region was represented by:

Barbara Grodowska – Fundacja Inteligentna Małopolska
Karolina Najder – SPCleantech Cluster
Andrzej Czulak – New Era Materials sp. z o.o.
Marta Czulak – GOFAR sp. z o.o.
Anna Sowa – Jadczyk – Małopolska Agencja Rozwoju Regionalnego S.A.
Marcin Derejski – Magnoterm sp. z o.o.
