With the Kick-off meeting on June 17, 2024 in Bratislava, SPCleantech started the 30-month Interreg Central Europe project “Circular design and development of Sustainable products in 4 key sectors in Central Europe – CURIOST“. The project was started on 01.06.2024.

On January 31, 2024, the Monitoring Committee of the Interreg Central Europe Program agreed to co-finance 47 new transnational cooperation projects with a budget of EUR 76 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The total number of transnational projects financed under the program will therefore increase to 100 after the first two calls for proposals. Among the 47 new transnational cooperation projects financed, there are 5 Polish partners, 4 of which are universities, and SPCleantech is the only company from Poland that was among the Polish partners of the first edition of Interreg Central Europe.

The partners in the project are:

  • Business Upper Austria, Österreich – lead partner
  • ConPlusUltra Ltd, Österreich
  • University of Economics in Bratislava, Slovensko
  • Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Magyarország
  • South Poland Cleantech Cluster Ltd., Poland
  • STEP RI science and technology park, Hrvatska
  • Development and Educational Center, Hrvatska
  • MESAP Innovation Cluster, Italy
  • Science and Technology Park, Italy
  • Bayern Innovativ,Deutschland
  • Cluster of Environmental, Deutschland

The CURIOST project is based on the premise that digitalization is a key enabler of circular economy solutions. The project aims to enable SMEs and small mid-cap companies to realize their potential in the circular and digital economy, in particular in product/process design + engineering, resource-efficient production, product/material recovery.

The consortium is coordinated by Biz-up and brings together 11 partners from 7 EU countries AT, DE, HR, HU, IT, SK and PL with complementary expertise in digitalization and business innovation, circular economy and energy/environmental issues.

The design approach focuses on the development and practical demonstration of sustainable + digital business model patterns tailored to the needs of SMEs. Firstly, CURIOST will increase the capacity of regional intermediary partnership organizations to become transformative enablers of regional SMEs and small mid-caps in manufacturing sectors as the main target group of the project.

Project Partners will then test business model benchmarks with regional SMEs and mid-cap companies and then engage the most motivated companies in transnational projects to develop business model solutions. They will be distributed to a broad group of companies seeking to transition to digital + circular business in the manufacturing sectors of partner regions. A multi-channel communication/dissemination approach ensures that the CURIOST approach is adopted and scaled up by manufacturing SMEs and mid-caps across the project region and anchored at regional and European policy levels.

Partners will implement a roadmap co-creation process to develop strategies to support circularity at the regional level and define transnational collaborative initiatives as a basis for sustainable collaboration on circular solutions beyond the project.
