Innovation funding and support for SMEs of the Built Environment Sector

15 European partners join forces to support SMEs from 6 European countries, bringing innovation to the “traditional” value chain of the Construction sector and expand it to other industries to create an enlarged Built Environment industrial sector enabling these SMEs to internationalise their activities and reach European markets.

 

In the frame of METABUILDING, 3.75M € will be available to finance 140 SMEs, boosting collaborative innovation projects belonging to one of the following industrial sectors, searching for synergies:

 

  • Construction Sector
  • Additive Manufacturing Sector
  • Nature Based Solutions
  • Circularity & Recycling Industries
  • Digital Industrial Sector

 

reaching out to more than 6.000 SMEs through 90 regional clusters in 6 target counties:

 

Austria · Italy · France · Hungary · Portugal · Spain

 

INNOVATION SUPPORT PLATFORM

 

METABUILDING project will establish a Digital Platform, open to all stakeholders of the enlarged Built Environment sector, helping SMEs to find partners for collaborative projects, innovative technologies, and information about available funding for SME innovation. This digital platform will be closely linked to the European Construction Technology Platform (ECTP) and is supposed to become an important tool for SME innovation and collaboration for the related industrial sectors in Europe.

 

INNOVATION ECOSYTEM

 

METABUILDING Metaclustering Process will reach Clusters and their SMEs in their business environment through the different instances of EU clusters:  European > National > Regional > SMEs

 

The project will help construction-related clusters from the 6 target countries to achieve together critical mass and share resources and experience, needed to upscale their business scope to Europe in a sustainable and expandable collaborative innovation ecosystem.

     

    • Establish a digital platform facilitating business and innovation in an enlarged Built Environment Sector.

     

    To reach the mentioned goals, METABUILDING will promote the Open SME Calls that will be published on the Horizon 2020 Participants Portal and on the projects' own website. Funded projects will be selected through transparent competitive procedures.
