This Deliverable reports about all the inter-clustering activities performed by the Recipe4Mobility partnership during their 24-month project duration. The partnership, consisting of five European cluster organizations had the goal to strengthen their management skills, to provide professional services to their ecosystems, notably their SMEs and to generate cross-sectorial European value chains in the mobility sector. Therefore, the project included a dedicated work package with specific tasks to obtain the implementation of joint activities.
The overall objective of this work package was to stimulate the cooperation between the clusters, sharing knowledge from each other, and more specifically to build a business ecosystem for the cluster members by engaging them in the exchange activities. Their participation enabled the sharing of best practices, success stories, but also stimulated and developed cross-border and cross sectoral collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship across different regions and value chains in the sector of Safe and Sustainable Urban Mobility.
To achieve these goals and results, the consortium has performed many different activities, such as international cluster missions in the Netherlands, France and Germany. Due to the sanitary crisis in link with the Covid-19 these physical exchanges have unfortunately been impossible to perform for a consistent part of the project life, however the consortium took advantage of this limitations, in order to postpone these activities to a more suitable time and focusing on possible digital activities. Indeed, to improve the cluster management skills, trainings with an external expert as well as coaching sessions to exchange knowledge among the clusters were organized digitally. In addition, some partners have worked together intensively on common topics and interests, such as a visit to the trade fair IAA or the collaboration in other projects. But there was also intensive cooperation with other external clusters and networks in order to identify and attract additional competitive clusters and SMEs.
The combination of all these activities allowed to the partners to have extensive exchanges and to reach a very strong cooperation level, that lead to the development of an additional project that will follow RECiPE4Mobility and who’ll have even higher ambitions, based on the lessons learned from the current project: REMOBILISE
