Greentech meta-cluster in the Greater Region

Despite considerable restrictions in terms of mobility and attendance, GREATER GREEN's activities continue with great élan. The thematic working groups meet virtually and exchange information about new developments; possible project approaches are discussed and elaborated. Among others, numerous potential partners have already come together for a large regional cluster in timber construction. Under the lead of Grand E-nov, the project team is in an intensive exchange with regard to a continuation of the started activities beyond the forthcoming end of the Interreg funding; concrete approaches are emerging.

Therefore, please visit regularly our News and "Events" (see below) sections.

We will continue to keep you informed on developments regarding the environmental technology sector within and outside the Greater Region, especially through our newsletter. Previous issues of our newsletter can be found in the Download section.

On the website of the European Platform for Cooperation of Clusters (ECCP) you will findmore information on clusters and EU-supported COVID-19 mitigation measures.


GREATER GREEN is a meta-cluster in the Greater Region. It is Europe's first cross-border network for environmental technology and its target groups are other networks from Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland, Lorraine, Luxembourg and Wallonia. GREATER GREEN networks actors from business - especially SMEs -, science and administration across borders. The meta-cluster supports SMEs in expanding their product range and thus helps them to open up new markets.
