European Cluster Collaboration Platform

The objectives of the ECCP are:

  • Boost networking to facilitate business opportunities and to find potential partners.
  • Development of collaborations between nations in Europe and outside the framework of the European Community.
  • Support the emergence of new value chains through Cross-Sectorial Cooperation.
  • Report on new Clusters development.
  • Improve the performance and increase the competitiveness of its members.

Digital Innovation Hubs

OnGranada leads and coordinates the Digital Innovation Hub in Andalusia. A Digital Innovation Hub is a unique regional structure so that any company can easily benefit from specialised support when it comes to understanding what digital technologies are, how are they impacted by them and how they can have access to them, as well as how to finance and boost the investments needed to tackle the digital transformation of the business.

The core element of a Digital Innovation Hub is a Competence Centre (CC), where the Hub plays a connecting role among all the regional actors involved. Thus, it could be said that in most cases the Competence Centre provides the so-called “Hard” technical infrastructure, while the Digital Innovation Hub focuses on the “Soft” infrastructure aimed at offering business services.
