The Clust-ERs are financed by the European Funds of the Emilia-Romagna Region – ERDF ROP 2014-2020.
The Emilia-Romagna Region has found in the Clust-ERs the subjects capable of multiplying innovation opportunities through a collaborative approach, as they focus their activity in R&D strategic sectors.
Together with the Technopoles and the High Technology Network laboratories, they are one of the key players in the regional innovation ecosystem coordinated by ASTER, the Emilia-Romagna consortium for innovation and technology transfer.
The energy and sustainable development sectors affect all human activities and are strategic in supporting the regional economy transition to a low environmental impact system.
Promoting the development of such sectors means an advancement towards a more rational management of the resources and a decrease of harmful emissions into the environment.
Strengthening innovation in the energy-environmental field contributes to the competitiveness and the wellness of the Emilia-Romagna region through the development of knowledge, new products, advanced services and innovative business models.
