Main outputs will be a cross-fertilization toolkit as instrument to favour innovation of Clusters and SMEs, 380 SMEs supported on innovative projects, the setting up of a transnational innovation network between traditional and creative industries and a Manifesto, to promote cross fertilization and to enlarge the network.

Co-Create will also contribute to the development at MED level of more competitive clusters through the elaboration of a cross fertilization methodology and toolkitto support and manage cross-clusters initiatives.

TRANSNATIONAL COOPERATION

Transnational cooperation is required to MED clusters and SMEs. MED clusters have to learn to work together to tackle market challenges. Looking at the social and climate changes, new products and services will be required and new markets and industries will emerge.

The transnational approach is also required to promote SMEs individually. Suffering a lack of innovation and internationalization strategies and facing a competition that goes beyond national borders, SMEs need initiatives of transnational scope where to exchange information with key actors both from demand and supply supported by funding schemes and calls at European level.

Finally, CO-CREATE point of view is transnational as it intends to set up a transnational community of multimedia and digital competence providers to support innovation for clusters, organize a cross-clusters initiative to promote ideas from youths and creatives addressed to traditional sectors at transnational level.
