Building relations inside cluster or internationalization of actions and practical aspects of transnational cooperation in applying for joint projects.

Lasting for two days workshops on the area on – broadly understood – Medical Technology and Life Science issues were the opportunity to present our Cluster on the transnational field – particularly in the matter of our offer and expectations in terms of cooperation. Trip to Strasbourg resulted not only in blindfolded numerous contacts, but also in many ideas for the implementation of joint projects.

During the talks, plenary sessions and backstage chats we were emphasizing the need to redefine the objectives of the European policy as an opportunity to share by countries of the so-called “Old Europe” experiences and good practices with countries of the Baltic region, Eastern Europe and South America.
