To master increasingly complex and multidisciplinary technology and business chains, partnering, risk-sharing and mobilisation of a critical mass across Europe are needed.

The CLINES cluster partnership will lay the foundation for a cooperation of companies and universities of the participating regions.

CLINES will in particular address the challenges of Smart Cities, such as energy efficiency, and how to tackle them using embedded system technologies.

CLINES project results will lead to growth perspectives and increased European excellence within key enabling technologies and foster pertinent regional digital agendas. It will furthermore provide a framework for cluster cooperation to internationalize and unlock novel business opportunities on global markets beyond Europe.
