INNOSKART ICT Cluster has been a member of the Natureef European Strategic Cluster Partnership consortium since it was founded in 2013. The main focuses of our strategic partneship are:
- to achieve a natural resource efficient and climate change resilient economy and society,
- the protection and sustainable management of natural resources and ecosystems, and
- the sustainable supply and use of raw materials, in order to meet the needs of a growing global population within the sustainable limits of the planet's natural resources and eco-systems.
The concept of Natureef – European Strategic Cluster Partnership for a natural resource efficient Europe – fostering solutions via cluster cooperation is founded on the regional integration of two European policies: Resource-efficient Europe and Promoting Research and Development as well as Innovation.
The main objective of Natureef is to intensify cluster and business network collaboration across cluster consortia members to support the establishment of European Strategic Cluster Partnership to lead international cluster cooperation in the field Natural Resource Efficiency. Natureef– project promotes natural resources efficiency business in South America, Asia and ASEAN Countries for enterprises based in Natureef cluster consortium countries. Project provides an opportunity for SMEs in the field of Natural resource efficiency technology who are interested in the target country markets to develop their marketing and networking. The project will also improve the networking of research and development organizations and their cooperation with third countries actors. Furthermore, the project will develop and strengthen the cooperation among the cluster and SMEs members as a result of B2B meetings and the SMEs collaboration in the working groups.
