- To strengthen the participating clusters' management excellence to provide more professional innovation and business support services to their SMEs members. The geographical scope covers EU countries, EU candidate countries and COSME countries, such as Germany, Poland, Hungary, Romania and Serbia.
- To develop strategic plans to generate greater added value for the participating clusters' members, including through enhanced cluster collaboration among them.
- To promote the participating clusters' learning, with a focus on engaging cluster organisations from regions with different levels of economic development (from developed to in transition), and with distinct stages of development experience (from Gold Cluster Management Excellence Label to expected 1st assessment).
- To support participating clusters' managers to develop a comprehensive strategy with a view to support the growth and the competitiveness of their members, as well as a roadmap for the implementation.
- To facilitate the collaboration among the participating clusters to operate jointly at EU level and to exploit synergies towards common activities and joint strategy development for the long term.
Eco-energy, bio-energy, energy efficiency, renewable energy and environmental technologies
The project aims to generate added-value services for the involved cluster organisations' SME members and support their growth and competitiveness through identifying the type of services generating the greatest added-value and delivering these services in the most effective manner. The total number of SME members involved is 294.
The objectives will be achieved through a number of activities planned within a 24 months period starting in November 2016:
targeted training actions to enhance the cluster managers' skills, - elaboration of SME members' need analyses, surveys,
undertaking value-chain and market analysis,
preparation of a comprehensive mid-term cluster strategy,
establishment of a consolidated strategy at consortium level,
preparation of a communication plan and dissemination report,
The consolidated consortium strategy will also outline the planned collaboration and follow-up actions of the network of applicant cluster organisations in order to sustain the project results. The above activities will be supported by several networking activities to facilitate cluster cooperation and synergies on skills enhancement and strategy development (see Events organised by the project).
Events organized by the project:
joint learning and knowledge sharing workshop events at consortium level with study visits (3),
awareness raising workshops at cluster levels (3),
cross-cluster learning events by European Commission/EASME (2).

The main objective of the project: energy production beside reducing the load on environment, by evolving and using technologies which transform different types of waste to valuable and useful final products. In a regional pilot project, by cooperating with six cluster members, we are working on energetic utilization and more environmentally friendly disposal of plastic waste by pyrolysis.
The project is about planning and establishing a monitoring system of a model passive house. Researches and studies is being made during the project, scientifically contribute to the regionally adaptation of passive house standards. The purpose of the opening and closing conferences and workshops is to offer exact information about the pay-offs of the technology for the investors, architectures and the public. The project leader is the Politehnica University of Timisoara.
The main objective of the project is to promote the cooperation of SMEs at the cross-border region. In addition to this, another goal is to locate initiations in which way a renewable energy cluster can be created on the Romanian side, with the help of the professional experience of ArchEnerg Cluster and hand over the successful Hungarian practices. The studies are going to map the Romanian and Hungarian cluster policies and cluster-development programs, while conferences and workshops assist the success of the project by bringing together the potential partners. The project leader is the ArchEnerg Cluster, the project partner is the Diaszpóra Foundation (Timisoara) on the Romanian side.
The main objective is: to establish a network supported by many ways (databases, professional publications, workshops, conferences, exhibitions), which provide basis for the cooperation of the enterprises on both sides of the border in the long-run. Bring together Hungarian and Romanian companies, which can discover common directions in their business activities in the future. Target groups: Hungarian, Romanian SMEs, energy suppliers, non-governmental organisations. The project contributes to share experiences between the partners and helps the cooperation of the enterprises in the cross-border area. Our partner on the Romanian side is the Romanian Hungarian Business Association (Romániai Magyar Üzleti Egyesület).
Cluster management organisation development and building up a solar collector productioncapacity
In the project, the cluster, as a developing cluster had won a tender, which is supported by the Southern Great Plain Operative Program. In this context, on the one hand, the existing management services are getting developed, new service portfolio is being evolved, and on the other hand we are planning to accomplish an infrastructural project element. The cluster wants to build the infrastructural background, necessary to produce a low price-category solar collector. In connection with the investment, it wants to get the know-how (technology), and the required machines and installations for the production.
ArchEnerg Incubator House Establishment
During the project a modern, sustainable business infrastructure will be implemented which contains infrastructure and service development as well. Inside the incubator building, which is to be constructed, will be 13 offices, 2 workrooms, 1 multi-function educate room (can also be used for holding conferences), 1 stock room, and 2 properly equipped courtrooms will be available for the companies moving in. In the project the service portfolio provided by the service centre will also be developed. The enterprises moving in could avail screening, partner searching, business operation consultancy, management consultancy, tender writing, etc., as a part of a complex service mix. In the incubator renewable energy technologies will be used.
