SMART in MED Project originates from key Europe 2020 strategy and fosters the definition and implementation of Mediterranean SMART SPECIALISATION STRATEGY with the final objective of strengthening the strategic cooperation between economic development players and public authorities, namely supporting SMEs innovation capacities and development potential in the field of Renewable energy and Energy Efficiency.
A key aspect of SMART in MED is to exploit the role energy clusters can play, thanks to their capacity to reach SMES better than other intermediaries and offer new services that help SMEs to innovate. Clusters will be accompanied to improve their intermediary role with both private actors and local public authorities in raising awareness on SMEs role as key actors for facing the new economic and environmental challenges.
SMART in MED is a transnational project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) in the framework of the European Territorial Cooperation objective by the MED Program.
