The COMPETITIV’EKO project, funded by the European Programme INTERREG POCTEFA, has been nominated to the REGIOSTARS Awards 2020. The REGIOSTARS Awards are a yearly competition, organised by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy. It aims at identifying good practices in regional development and highlighting innovative, EU-funded projects, which could be attractive and inspiring to other regions and project managers
Led by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Bayonne Pays Basque and counting with the participation of Orkestra - Deusto Foundation, COMPETITIV’EKO had as objective to tackle the low levels of cross-border collaboration in the regions of Aquitaine, Euskadi and Navarra and to boost SMEs’ competitiveness and innovation capacity. The project has involved companies, clusters, technology centres and economic development agencies. As a result, three cooperation hubs have been created on three key sectors for the territory: additive manufacturing; Big Data and Artificial Intelligence; and medical devices and e-health.
