European project Cluster4Smart paves the way for new projects

Posted on

Allow clusters to optimize their skills within the framework of Industry 4.0


Creativity, innovation, competitiveness, new business models based on digital technologies, all points that each cluster must take into account in order to understand the needs of its members and establish a strategy in line with their needs.




Launched in September 2017, the European Cluster4Smart project led by SCS aims to provide any cluster leader, network of companies and their stakeholders with a real online training (MOOC) to help them improve their managerial practices and support their members in their transition to Industry 4.0.

During Cluster4Smart process, which ended at the end of May 2020, SCS was able to use its experience in digital technologies, but also in terms of communication and project management.

All of these training resources are available on the Cluster4Smart platform HERE

A single slogan : spreading good managerial practices to accelerate the digitalization of Industry !




The results of the Cluster4Smart project have already served as a basis for the development of 2 new European projects and have paved the way for continuous improvement in the offer of upgrading training content for cluster managers.


  1. The Briliant project

BRILLIANT is the European Strategic Cluster Partnerships for Excellence (ESCP-4x) co-funded by the COSME programme to facilitate cross-sector networking and co-learning among industrial clusters representing smart lighting, furniture and building value chains, aiming at the professionalisation of specialised and customised business support services to SMEs.
BRILLIANT is one of the 13 ESCP-4x projects which implement together the ClusterXchange programme, a new pilot programme to support short-term exchanges to better connect Europe’s industrial ecosystems. The programme will facilitate transnational cooperation, peer learning, networking and innovation uptake between SMEs and other actors of different industrial clusters.
