Anteja hosts the Poly4EmI Initiative (Polymers for Emerging Industries) that bundles regional actors that are active in bio-based industry. Poly4EmI promotes the transition to bio-economy through cross-fertilization of sectors and digitalization of value chains.

Poly4EmI is a successor of the Poly4EmI EU flagship project on new policy models supporting bio-based industry through clusters and smart specialization led by the Ministry of Science, Education, and Sports in Slovenia.

The Poly4EmI platform ensures that new policy tools, analysis, cases studies, projects ideas, cluster coaching and mentoring schemes are further enabling advances in bio-based initiatives.

Multi-country effort to enable the Danube region’s transition from a fossil-based to a bio-based economy

A missing holistic transnational/regional approach in the Alpine Space causes existing actors in the bio-based economy to operate disjointed. Relevant clusters operate disconnected, important value chains are not established especially for producing high value applications and products that address critical societal needs: circular economy, environmental sustainability, local employment and quality of life. As the Alpine Space regions possess huge biomass resources and the necessary knowledge and technology to use them in sectors such as green chemicals, biopolymers or bio-based materials, Alpine Space competitiveness potential remains then untapped. AlpLinkBioEco will then create a cross Alpine Space circular bio-based strategy, establishing awareness, assessing, selecting and creating transnational/regional new value chains connecting all relevant actors, and demonstrating the implementation of succesful business opportunities.

Multi-country effort to enable the Danube region’s transition from a fossil-based to a bio-based economy

Bioeconomy has a huge potential in Danube Region which could promote development based on innovation, new services, and value chains. The development of new bio-based value chains from primary production to consumer markets requires connecting firms across national boundaries and industries. Together with other expert groups from across the Danube region, Anteja helps to articulate a Joint Bio-based Industry Cluster Policy Strategy to further promote bio based value chains.  The clusters and SMEs will benefit from the innovative tools and methods developed for transnational cross-clustering. Three sector-specific value chains will be established and will serve as a model for future development of bio-based industry activities in the Danube region.  The main stakeholders include the four Ministries from the region, the clusters and their SMEs, and the nine cluster organizations involved.

Multi-country effort to enable the Alpine Space participating regions to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth of economically viable activities

The Smart Specialisation concept is an integral part of the EU Cohesion Policy.  Several EU regions have developed Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3).  The challenge is to implement S3 through clusters. In the Alpine Space, implementation of S3 by clusters and cluster organizations can offer an innovative approach for improving innovation capacity.  Cross-regional approaches can serve to support coordinated actions between the different sectors/regions. Transnational cluster cooperation helps to achieve a critical mass of SMEs and enhances cross-regional collaboration in areas of relevance to the Alpine Space.

The S3-4AlpClusters project is supported by the European Union within the framework of the Interreg VB Espace Alpin program. To achieve this, the fourteen partners wish to:

  • Initiate exchanges of information and knowledge among political decision-makers from different regions of the Alpine region, including business, academics and civil society;
  • Facilitate innovation through cluster initiatives (innovation groups) across the Alpine space with a strong technological orientation and a high degree of complementarity between the clusters;
  • Launching cluster-to-cluster cooperation involving all relevant stakeholders: regional political bodies, academic institutions, business and civil society.

The project runs for 30 months, from 1 November 2016 to 30 April 2019, with a total budget of € 2,521,964, of which € 1,929,500 under the ERDF.

Bringing circular economy to the farmers in rural Alpine Region for sustainable growth

Medicinal & Aromatic Plants (MAPs) are botanical raw materials that are used for therapeutic, aromatic or culinary purposes as components of cosmetics, medicinal or foods products.

There is an increasing demand for MAPs thanks to an increased production of healthcare formulations; MAPs based supplements have a market of $35 billion p. a.

The TRANSALB project aims to bring the Circular Economy (CE) approach to farmers in rural Alpine Region (AR) for more sustainable growth by establishing MAP value chains (VC) and supporting Green Infrastructure networks (GI) by promoting sustainable practices and awareness raising.

High variety of spices of MAPs in AR currently not fulfilling a potential. Phytopharma manufacturer (PM) in AR mainly import MAPs; SMEs can not benefit due to a limitation within VCs and GI.

MAP-VC do not yet exist in AR. There is an increased pressure from the PMC-side to build such MAP-VC in the AR by making better use of CE. Cultivation of MAPs in AR and becoming a supplier of PMC provides farmers with a unique opportunity for sustainable growth. Specifically, in health, cosmetics and food biologically produced products are highly valorized. Skill development plays an important role to upgrade the knowledge of actors along the MAP-VC.

The main results of the project are a strategic overview on how this cross-cutting topic can work in AR, a fully developed MAP-VC, proposals for upgrading skills of actors involved and first experiences how the GI can work in practice. TRANSALB is led by ClusterAgentur Baden-Württemberg and involves further partners, like ANTEJA / POLY4EMI (Slovenia), Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and Consumer Protection (Germany), Autonomous Province Trentino (Italy) and Plastic Innovation Competence Centre (Switzerland). The project is about to start in March and last 15 months.
