EU Projects

Following the Lower Austrian Economic Strategy’s action principle of Openness and Collaboration the ecoplus cluster department engages in interregional projects in order to enable know-how transfer and the use of synergies as well as to increase the international visibility of Lower Austria. 

In addition to the clusters’ participation in European R&D projects on specific sector or technology related topics (e.g. bioplastics, advanced manufacturing, re-use of materials, etc.) ecoplus develops strategic partnerships with complementary clusters or regions for the benefit of the Lower Austrian economy and science base. 

Last but not least interregional exchange contributes to the continuous improvement of our cluster management skills.
