european cluster excellence initiative gold label
Axelera earned the European Cluster Excellence Initiative Gold Label in June 2014. The label, an initiative of the European Commission Enterprise and Industry DG, certifies the cluster’s excellence in strategy, governance, member services, and the promotion and development of innovation.
To date, just ten clusters in France and 50 across Europe have earned this prestigious label.
eu scot project
Axelera and Belgium-based GreenWin are heading this EU project on CO2 transformation, which is financed by the Seventh Framework Programme. A total of five regions in Europe are represented among the project partners. The project’s objective is to determine Europe’s strategic agenda for CO2 transformation. The project kicked off in 2014, and two phases were completed that same year: a report on the state of the art in CO2 transformation in Europe and a socioeconomic analysis of the main alternatives for CO2 transformation.
Public-private partnership SPIRE
Axelera has been involved in working groups under the EU PPP SPIRE (Sustainable Process Industry through Resource and Energy Efficiency) since 2013. This project aims to develop new sustainable, economically-competitive manufacturing processes that make better use of resources and have less of an impact on the environment. In May 2014 Axelera participated in a brokerage event; in October of that same year the cluster attended an infoday in Brussels.
