EXCITE – Exchange of Clusters using Digital Transformation for Excellence

EXCITE is a two-year EU-funded project (COSME-ClusterExcellence) focus on skills, processes and services related to digital transformation. Both the participating cluster organisations themselves and their SME members are to be supported in this way in successfully opening up international markets.


The consortium consists of six European clusters and scale-up organisations from Eastern and Western Europe that are active in the ICT sector. In addition to the clusters Silicon Saxony (Germany), Gaia – Association of Knowledge and Applied Technologies Industries in the Basque Country (Spain) and Secure Communication Cluster (France), which have already been working together for several years as part of the Silicon Europe Alliance, partners such as Cluster for Digital Transformation and Innovation (Bulgaria), Business Hive Vilnius (Lithuania) and Mazovia Cluster ICT (Poland) are also involved.
