Matchmaking on raw materials in Finland
You are invited to discuss critical issues on raw materials in our event in Finland!
The European Cluster Collaboration Platform, on behalf of the European Commission and in partnership with East & North Finland and MINE.THE.GAP, is jointly organising the Clusters meet Regions workshop and matchmaking on 25-27 April 2023 in Kittilä, Lapland, Finland. The event is dedicated to a sustainable approach to raw materials, focusing on circular industrial economy and digitalisation. It aims to bring together clusters and policymakers from a range of levels to learn, from each other, how to strengthen industrial ecosystems and support economic development.
The event provides a platform for interregional collaboration, strengthening the capacity of regional ecosystems and creating a more integrated approach to connecting upstream and downstream industrial value chains. There are expected to be around 150 representatives in-person from European clusters, local, regional, national, and European public authorities, as well as industry and civil society stakeholders, who will share their experience and provide insights into the role of clusters in increasing the responsible utilization of raw materials.
To attend the matchmaking event, MINE.THE.GAP offers financial support for travelling costs for all SMEs that are or have been funded under MINE.THE.GAP. As awardees, travel expenses (travel and accommodation) will be covered to a maximum of 2 people per SME coming from the different countries involved in MINE.THE.GAP.
