A network of B4P Innovation Cluster (B4PIC)
ECTP and WGBC, the private partners of the B4P partnership, are initiating a network of clusters related to the built environment, that have common ambitions to increase their interdisciplinarity, their multi-sectoral coverage, and their European outreach.
A B4P Innovation Cluster (B4PIC) is a group of innovation-driven stakeholders, such as local/regional clusters or networks, that ambition to increase their coverage (geographical, cross-sectoral, multidisciplinary), and the sustainability of their innovations in the Built Environment sector.
B4P Innovation Clusters can benefit from support services by the B4P partners : such services include some guidance to increase the clusters’ coverage on the above-mentioned dimensions, dedicated channels and events to share experience, knowledge and resources, and specific support about partnership and funding opportunities.
Are you interested in becoming a B4P Innovation Cluster?
The first call for application is now open! You can therefore:
- check this Information sheet that synthesises the B4PIC network features and process,
- fill in the application form by the end of December 2023.
This call is open until end of December 2023. We will review all applications in January 2024: should your network or cluster meet the B4PIC criteria, we will then jointly elaborate a maturity roadmap to define how your organisation can improve its coverage (geographical, multi-sectoral, cross-disciplinary) and access to test beds.
Once the B4PIC Charter is signed, your network and members will start benefiting from the services described above.
Our frontrunner Aquitaine-Euskaidi Innovation Cluster
Respectively French and Spanish clusters located in the Basque country, have joined forces to create the first B4PIC! Specialised in the construction sector, both clusters will work towards a better mutual understanding, the consolidation of synergies, the integration of New European Bauhaus concepts, and more cross-border cooperation between their members, with the support of the local innovation ecosystem.
More information to come soon!
Members of the network
 More precisely, the support to Innovation Clusters is provided by the NEBULA consortium that includes the WGBC and ECTP, private members of the B4P partnership.
