Spring is here! The second issue of the bi-annual EMPOWER magazine is now live. The magazine focuses on summarising the main findings of the research phase of the project. Throughout its pages, you will discover how engineering SMEs can be supported by looking at some inspiring initiatives developed in seven regions involved in the project.

SME Cluster Growth is an ERASMUS+ Knowledge Alliance project to empower SMEs in the engineering sector to grow and compete. Our project team is led by the University of Málaga, Spain and spans nine partners across seven European countries. It is an ambitious collaboration with higher education institutions (HEIs), future skills and business growth professionals and university-industry relationship experts to advance engineering SMEs’ capacities. We do this through five support areas, including: MappingCluster Growth CouncilsLearningConsultancy and Facilities Sharing.

Engineering remains a dominant knowledge sector in the EU. By focusing on cross-border engineering business cluster development, we enable synergies across regions, reach international markets, adopt new technologies, and support mutual learning.

Engineering SMEs and the Higher Education community will be the primary beneficiaries of this approach. While students, regional government, intermediary organisations, venture capitalists, business consultants and investors will also have the advantage of an outward looking engineering ecosystem.
