SmartCityTech partnership launched new COSME project

SmartCityTech partnership launched new COSME project

On September 1, 2020, was launched the European Technology for Sustainable Development project in which the Cluster Sofia Knowledge City cooperates with 4 partner organizations from Spain, Belgium, Denmark, and Poland. The eT4S project is funded by the COSME Program

eT4S supports the development of collaboration and business agreements between the EU and North America (North East Coast of the USA) and between the EU and Asia/ASEAN (Singapore and China, incl. Shanghai). 

The eT4S project aims to establish a new European Strategic Cluster Partnership (ESCP) in the cross-sector emerging industry of Smart City solutions powered by ICT technologies.

The eT4S project is managed by a consortium which is embedded within the SmartCityTech partnership, that includes 11 clusters from 9 different EU countries, and can leverage on the expertise and network build by this partnership since 2013, and includes GAIA (coordinator), HOEN, DSP Valley, CSKC and FDKO.

The eT4S project within COSME is complementary to the CLINES and ESCT projects developed by the participating Clusters.

The eT4S project has as goals:

  1. To develop viable cooperation and business agreements in the eT4S domain. eT4S will explore concrete opportunities in the target regions hereby leveraging on the existing beachhead network which was already developed through the Smart City Tech partnership. This has to lead to at least 2 collaboration agreements and 4 business agreements.
  2. To increase the likelihood of impactful internationalisation by developing an online assessment strategy.

The project’s duration is 24 months, with total budget of 498.686 €, of which the EU contribution is 448.815 €.
