The Euregio Meuse-Rhine programme is one of the longest-running forms of cross-border cooperation in Europe.
It was within the framework of this informal cross-border economic cooperation body that the “Towards Top Technology Cluster” TTC project was implemented (2011-2014), co-financed by the INTERREG IV A Euregio Meuse-Rhine programme. Aimed at the setting-up of cross-border consortia of SMEs and the development of innovative projects in the life sciences, healthcare, innovative materials, ICT and energy sectors, the TTC brings together professional networks, regional development agencies and universities to create a platform for contact and cooperation.

Creation of cross-border consortia of innovative SMEs.

Project activities
