Services for Cluster Collaboration
EBTC is exploring the development of business and research relationships with clusters in India to enhance the success of collaborative ventures.
The cluster landscape in India in comparison to Europe is complicated and at a different scale of operation. India is a perplexing place for European clusters as they set out to internationalise under the EU directive by the Directorate General Enterprise which declared 2012 as the year to better promote the internationalisation of small & medium enterprises (SME’s) through clusters.
EBTC is cooperating with the European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP), one of the main EU instruments for promoting transnational cluster cooperation in India.
ECCP is an open online platform that provides a range of services to facilitate the interaction between companies and clusters within Europe but also with international partners.

The Cluster Helpdesk
Learn about clusters in India by posing specific queries regarding your interests through the cluster helpdesk which will endeavour to answer your queries by involving the EBTC’s sector specialist’s as well as cluster experts from the cluster ecosystem that is being created around the helpdesk.
Explore opportunities first hand
There is no better way to understand a country as diverse as India, than by actually exploring the country, people, and most importantly – your sector of interest first hand.
For maximum benefit and exposure, showcase your clusters technologies and innovations via the European Technology Experience Centre (ETEC), or at one of EBTC’s events, co-organised with our partners.
A common facet of EBTC’s events includes workshops, seminars, pre-screened meetings as well as market exploration.
