The European project BioX4Clusters (BIO crossing borders of 4 European Clusters for a joint internationalization strategy), in which Biocat participates, has been selected in the European Commission Directorate General for Enterprise and Industry call for proposals Promoting world-class clusters.
Biox4Clusters will be carried out from January 2012 through January 2014. The project aims to encourage and promote long-term international competitiveness of SMEs, cooperating and sharing resources among the four participating life sciences clusters. The other partners working with Biocat, which represents the biocluster of Catalonia, are Entreprise Rhône-Alps International (ERAI), which is leading the project; LyonBiopole, for the Rhône-Alps region; BioM for the Bayern region (Germany), and BioPmed for Piedmont (Italy). Together, the participants aim to reach the necessary critical mass to promote internationalisation activities and better support SMEs. This internationalisation strategy will focus on three countries of interest, for the market opportunities they offer: China, Brazil and United States.
