On July 1st, PENTA takes over as spokesperson of the InterCluster Group, working with the Spanish Chair of EUREKA over the next 12 months. There are 7 Clusters: CATRENE, Celtic-Plus, Euripides, Eurogia, ITEA, Metallurgy and PENTA. Together they represent a significant investment in technology spending, with over 600 projects and in excess of €12 billion in project costs since 2000. Clusters provide a vital catalyst to boost pre-competitive application focussed research & development.
The InterCluster spokesperson represents the other Clusters at EUREKA meetings, as well as helping to co-ordinate activities between Clusters to ensure adoption of best practice and, where, appropriate, agree joint actions.
