InPulse specialised mainly in activities in support of innovation, technology transfer and internationalization of SMEs and clusters.
European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP)
ECCP is the European online hub for cluster stakeholders (cluster organizations, policymakers, and other related stakeholders from the cluster ecosystem) and the reference one-stop shop for stakeholders in third countries aiming to set up partnerships with European counterparts.
Built on the solid foundation of the European Observatory for Clusters and Industrial Change (OECIC) and the European Resource Efficiency Knowledge Centre (EREK), ECCP has acted as a platform for industrial clusters to come together and strengthen the European economy through collaboration.
The ultimate impact that the platform seeks is to strengthen the competitiveness and sustainability of Europe’s economy and industry, particularly SMEs, improving their performance in terms of productivity, innovation, internationalization, and resource efficiency.
Since 2022, InPulse is a member of the consortium ensuring the management of the ECCP.
Enterprise Europe Network (EEN)
EEN has already established itself as the largest international network that helps businesses innovate and grow on an international scale. It is the world’s largest support network for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with international ambitions.
The Network is active worldwide. It brings together experts from member organisations that are renowned for their excellence in business support. The Network can also offer a targeted approach aimed specifically at your business sector.
Its expert groups cover all key economic sectors, from healthcare to agrofood, from intelligent energy to fashion and textile. In addition, the Network will help companies increase their resilience and support SMEs in their transition to more sustainable and digital business models.
Since 2008, InPulse has been acting as a regional contact point for the Enterprise Europe Network as part of the RO4EUROPE consortium (2008 to 2014) in the West and South-West regions and as part of the PROSME consortium (since 2015) for Bucharest and South regions.
RO-CH Integrated Support Services for Romanian SMEs
From 2017 to 2019, InPulse was a partner in the “Integrated Support Services for Romanian SMEs”, a project consisting in providing support to the Ministry of Business, Trade and Entrepreneurship, in order to increase the export capacity of the Romanian SMEs from traditional industries (wood & agriculture) by organizing training courses and specialized professional training sessions and by ensuring their access to foreign markets (Europe and beyond - United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Malaysia, Singapore, China).
The project envisaged the establishment of two business export centres in the two main regions in Romania (Muntenia and North), as well as the establishment of four clusters in both fields in both regions.
As a partner in the project, InPulse Partners and its team ensured all the activities related to the development of the clusters, elaboration of individual export strategies for every stakeholder SME involved in the project, as well as the organisation of participation in foreign fairs, company missions and brokerage events.
