Gävle-based Future Position X involved in European Cluster Cooperation on Smart Cities

Future Position X was one of several European clusters working with smart cities to participate in the CERTH (Center for Research & Technology) European Cluster Policy Making Event in Thessaloniki, Greece.

For Gävle-based Future Position X, the meeting in mid-September was a great opportunity to look at European cluster cooperation within the framework of the goals.

Future Position X had meetings with seven different European clusters who are interested in cooperation with Sweden and Gävle in the area of ​​Smart Cities. There were also lectures on hot topics such as circular economy, how clusters could become even more active within Horizon 2020 and how future announcements look within Cosme (EU Competitiveness Program).

"It was an inspiring and enlightening event that will promote closer cooperation between European clusters. There is great interest in working with an organization such as ours working with smart cities based in Sweden and Gävle in and we will review which opportunities we want to move on with," says Jenny Nylund, Head of Internationalization at Future Position X.
