  1. accelerate the innovation capacity in chemical clusters in chemical regions
  2. transfer experience and jointly implement successful practices focussing on improving the organisation of chemical parks towards knowledge sites, on the implementation of the open innovation concept in chemical clusters and on skills foresight for the chemical industry,
  3. develop a joint benchmark and monitoring tool to regularly assess the rate of innovation in chemical clusters
  4. articulate the experience in joint policy recommendations at European and regional level to ensuring an innovation friendly regulatory environment and
  5. use the results of the co-operation to improve regional innovation and cluster policies and in particular the efficient use of structural funds mainstream programmes.













The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC , financed by the European Union's Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention . EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.
