SME innovation in the construction sector
The European construction industry needs to improve the innovation of its SMEs in order to extend its value chain and integrate new dynamic industrial sectors. To achieve critical mass and promote internationalisation, the European Construction Technology Platform (ECTP) has initiated a synergy with the ICT, additive manufacturing, nature-based solutions and recycling industrial sectors. The EU-funded METABUILDING project will complete a sustainable and expandable synergistic innovation ecosystem to reach clusters and their SMEs in their business environment. This advanced ecosystem will be supported by an open-innovation digital platform to build and sustain the rise of new cross-sectoral, cross-border industrial value chains delivering a metaclustering process. The project will advise and technically support SMEs and perform several cascade funding mechanisms in six EU countries: Spain, France, Italy, Hungary, Austria and Portugal.
