Smart V4 Strategies

South Poland Cleantech Cluster participates in a newly started Visegrad project together with partners – Czech Smart City Cluster, Slovak Smart City Cluster and Digitalis Jolet nonprofit from Hungary. The project “Smart V4 Strategies” was awarded financing support from the Visegrad Fund.

The aim of the project is to connect relevant partners in the given area of SMART strategies and prepare procedures for classification of SMART strategies in V4 countries into one complex database portal. The project offers V4 partners international cooperation in unifying SMART strategies to GreenDeal/SDG rules. The vision is to strengthen the unity and effectiveness in implementation of SMART strategies in all V4 countries.
More about the project

South Poland Cleantech Cluster

is the initiator of the krk UrbanHub project - a sustainable CEE (Central- and Eastern European) urbanization hub
krakowurbanhub is a partner in the urbanhub europe consortium of European cities consisting of BLOXHUB in Copenhagen, KIRAHub in Helsinki, Munich Urban Colab, FACTORY Hammerbrooklyn Hamburg, FAKTORY Berlin, Urban Resilience Hub Barcelona
krk UrbanHub is a national and international meeting place that engages people in architecture, design and sustainable urban development. This is done through exhibitions, debates, events, business development and new partnerships.
krk UrbaHhub is an ecosystem for creating cities of the future, and at the same time a space to share ideas, skills and strategies for designing buildings and urban development based on a people-centered approach and high standards of sustainable development, and a membership-based community combining urban development, architecture, design, design, construction, circular economy and digitization.

South Poland Cleantech Cluster

SPCleantech is co-founder of European Alliance for Cross- Industrial Circular Economy Investments (ICEI Alliance) consisting of European clusters and universities. During 2020-2021 there have been held meetings to prepare the establishment of the European Alliance for Cross- Industrial Circular Economy Investments, hosted by the Circular Economy Centre at Digipolis, Kemi, Finland.

The ICEI Alliance has for ambition to make Europe the global industrial circular economy platform to accelerate the deployment of world-class circular economy solutions to industry. It acts as a pipeline of business-led circular economy investment projects. Alliance members support businesses with the structuring of their investment cases as well as with accessing funding and financing streams.

EU project of the member of SPCleantech – BLOK Architekci

 |  Category: SPCleantech News

By participating in various EU projects, SPCleantech gains knowledge and experience in international cooperation. The same applies to the participation of our members, whereby both SPCleantech and other members and partners of the cluster can benefit from many advantages. A great example is the participation of a member of SPCleantech, BLOK Architekci, who since December 2020 has been participating in the project in the HORIZON 2020 Framework, PRELUDE – Prescient building Operation utilizing Real Time data for Energy Dynamic Optimization (PL: Precise building operation using real-time data to optimize dynamics) energy).

The project involves 21 partners – a consortium from various European countries and is led by the University of Aalborg, Denmark. The project started in December 2020 and will run until May 2024.

What is it about

Companies (including BLOK) develop various solutions and their implementation in order to optimize energy on various buildings – democases in the European Union. BLOK Architekci are developing a design for an office building at ul. Szlak 65.

Prelude’s goal is to develop a “building service” design and automation to be energy efficient.Together with the partners of the BLOK Architekci project, it is working on the implementation of intelligent solutions that will help achieve the best possible effects of an intelligent building.


  • minimizing energy consumption thanks to the use of modern technologies (dynamic models, big data, data analytics, predictive analytics, artificial intelligence
  • the use of renewable energy sources and their consistent use
  • reduction of the carbon footprint
  • improvement of the comfort and quality of the internal environment = the level of user satisfaction
  • lower maintenance costs
  • IoT solutions
  • versatility and the possibility of duplicating solutions
  • proactive optimization service

The national and international promotion of the project gives the opportunity to educate a larger social group not only related to the construction sector, although this is where the greatest emphasis is.
