Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) cluster
Description of call
"Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) cluster"

Technologies and innovations in the field of CBRN are developed by SMEs or larger companies which often face difficulties in bringing them to markets: because they address local, small niche markets; or because these SMEs have neither the capabilities nor the strategic objective to go for foreign markets; or because the individual technologies that they develop can make it to the market only if integrated and combined with other tools by other companies that have the capabilities and the strategy to market its products abroad, and possibly on the global market.

Such synergies among companies are not frequent in the area of CBRN technologies, which is to the detriment of industrial competitiveness, and which limits considerably the offer made to the practitioners if one compares with the actual technological state-of-the-art.

This call addresses the challenge by supporting chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) clusters.
