One of CEBR's main objectives is to create a European platform for the delivery of projects from across Europe. The main benefit will be to allow even the smallest projects to find a Europe-wide audience.
CEBR participates actively in several projects and also welcomes Members to bring their projects to the network to bring benefits to clusters everywhere and allow maximum engagement from regions. For all enquiries about these projects, please contact CEBR on email@example.com and we will be delighted to bring you into project activities.
CEBR is pleased to be part of these key projects in Europe:
This €3.5 million project is the flagship of CEBR Member activity and brings together 14 of the most active clusters in Europe, both established and emerging.
Funded as part of the 2009 Competitiveness and Innovation Programme, the project has the objective of creating the best possible biotech support services in Europe, based on activities validated as effective.
The scale of the budget and excellent of the partnership means that ABCEurope will define biotechnology support in Europe.
The consortium includes: Barcelona Science Park, Bioindustry Park del Canavese (Piedmont), BioM (Munich), BioTOP (Berlin), BioValley (Alsace), BioWin (Wallonia), ERBI (Cambridge), Heidelberg Technology Park, Innova (Hungary), Matimop (Israel), Medicon Valley Alliance, Medicen (Paris), Milan Chamber of Commerce, and Stockholm Science City.
Headline activities are:
- Creation of a Gold Standard internationalisation service for biotechs within clusters, with audit and training for providers
- Creation of Partnerports across Europe for low cost international company operation and expansion
- Entrepreneur 'Bootcamps' for first time CEOs
- Europe-wide technology showcases
- Non-Exec Director database online
- Cluster manager exchanges and mentoring schemes
- Business matchmaking events
- IPR support at European level
- Research facility access across Europe
- Centralisation of international funding information
- Evolution of the Ambassador scheme to suit clusters across Europe
This 'Regions of Knowledge' project has the objective of creating a joint action plan (JAP) in new biotechnology support services. The JAP will create a fully costed model for creation of cluster services and their delivery within a European network. It should allow emerging regions in particular, to create effective and low cost biotechnology services using a validated model.
The consortium includes: Genopole (Paris), BioTOP (Berlin), Biocat (Barcelona), Biopark del Canavese (Piedmont), University of Debrecen, INNO and CEBR.
objective of the European project « ShareBiotech » is to strengthen the biotechnology sector within the
Atlantic Area. In particular, it aims at improving the service offer from the
technological core facilities involved in the project. ShareBiotech will
make the access to technological core facilities easier for researchers and
companies – in particular SMEs – working in the fields of human health,
nutrition, agriculture/food-processing, cosmetics, marine biology and
