Sectoral Clusters are an inextricable part of modern entrepreneurship, as their use resolves many operational problems and enhances cooperation with the rest of the entrepreneurial society. InCluDe project develops an innovative cluster of aromatic and pharmaceutical plants and bridges the gap concerning the level of business tools use by enterprises in the eligible area.

The main objective of the project is to set up a viable and profitable cluster, for the eligible area and the end customer.

The project is implemented in three phases. During the first phase, the necessary foundations of the cluster are designed and implemented, exploiting and valorising different elements that are already present in the cross-border area. A “Cluster Implementation Study”, a “Cluster Strategic Action Plan” and a “Viability and Sustainability Study” will be elaborated. The second phase addresses the inner strengthening of the cluster that results in the necessary cohesion between the nodes of the cluster, by fostering networking, training and exchange of know-how activities. The last phase relates to the implementation of activities that will reinforce the extroversion of the cluster. These activities include networking activities such as participation in international exhibitions and networking events abroad.

Information & Publicity actions include a project website, dissemination material, a cluster directory and a final event.
