08 October 2020 – NE4HEALTH Kick-off
The NE4HEALTH project, in which OES is also a partner, started on 1st September 2020. The aim of the project is to promote the networking of European players in the field of flexible electronics for medical technology. OES cooperates with four other European clusters from Spain, Romania, Poland and Latvia.
Medical technologies are products, services or solutions used to save and improve people’s lives. This health and wellbeing applications are available in hospitals, community-care settings and at home (sticking plasters, screening tests, pregnancy tests, hearing aids, body scanners, gene mutation tests, implantable devices, joints for knees and hips). There are more than 25.000 SMEs in Europe’s health and wellbeing sector. The associated market worldwide is €426 billion (€115 billion in Europe) and the value chains are becoming more and more global.
Objectives and approach
The main objective of the project is to build-up a partnership of world leading clusters to configure a “European Strategic Cluster Partnership – Going International” focused on internationalization of electronics (printed, embedded…) technologies applied to health and wellbeing sectors. This European Strategic Cluster Partnership (ESCP-4i) will lead 5 EU clusters (and their SMEs) to increase their competitiveness and innovation potential for internationalization with a common European approach, fostering international cooperation among SMEs, and enhance Innovation, in the field of electronics applied to health and wellbeing sectors.
The Partnership will involve from the beginning clusters from Spain, Germany (Saxony), Romania, Poland (Pomerania) and Latvia, but with a European vocation and covering the whole value chain from materials to health and wellbeing markets.
The work methodology will be structured on 3 core actions to ensure:
- involvement of Cluster members in the bottom-up definition and implementation of the internationalization strategy
- building a strong and compact internationalization partnership implementing joint actions (organisation of 5 EU matchmaking events and 3 missions to Targeted Third Countries (TTC))
- committing the resulting EU stakeholders on a long-term and self-sustainable implementation roadmap
The Partnership will start with the following TTC candidates: Japan, USA, South Korea, Israel, Canada, Taiwan, China
