12/02/2019

The Technology Park of Andalusia (PTA) will organise its event “Meeting of the Spanish-Portuguese Innovation Network” on 13 February in Malaga, Spain, as a part of the European Commission’s EU Cluster week initiative. The event will be about discussing several proposals of activities for this year.



PTA is excited to take part in the first series of the EU cluster Weeks 2018-2019, which helps promote national, regional and local cluster events, and support SME (small and medium sized enterprise) growths, industrial transformation and regional economic development. This collaboration with the European Commission is a successful example of the EU’s efforts to build strong interregional collaboration to help strengthen business environments for business owners across Europe.



The Spanish-Portuguese Innovation Network, coordinated by the Technology Park of Andalusia and the University of Malaga, will meet during the VIII International Forum Transfiere in Malaga on 13 February. During this meeting, the members will discuss several proposals of activities for this year, such as meetings with companies related to the Network, with researchers and academics. In addition, sectorial meetings and a Summer School focused on innovation are planned for this year.



Partnering with the European Commission under its EU Cluster Week initiative is an opportunity to team up amongst EU countries and their regions to encourage European partnering, increase awareness on the role of clusters and their achieved results and to collect feedback on common challenges and the ways they can be addressed in the future initiatives. These EU, national and regional partnerships demonstrate the importance and success of such collaborative efforts in supporting SMEs in their expansion and growth efforts.



All the events that are part of the EU Cluster Weeks will be published and promoted through the European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP) channels.
