FURGY CLEAN Innovation

FURGY CLEAN Innovation is a cross-border cluster management aiming to accelerate innovation within in clean energy to strengthen competitiveness of businesses in the programme region.

This project aims to strengthen innovation in Clean Energy and thus continuing to strengthen businesses in the programme region through cross-border cluster management.

Background

Earlier analyses and experiences indicate that collaborations both within and between companies, knowledge institutions and public organizations promote societal productivity. Furthermore the companies’ accuracy in their innovation processes coming along with technology development, new products, processes, services and new ways for market penetration is strengthened.

So far, promotion of innovation in the Danish-German border region has been rather autonomous. Today many SME’s see the border as barriers of languages and cultural differences. The border region has a common basis, yet still there are differences. We are better off utilizing the differences to capture new customers, suppliers and partnerships

Purpose

In it’s core the project aims to foster and spur clean energy innovation to strengthen businesses in the programme region through cross-border cluster management.
