The Environmental Technology Meta-Cluster in the Greater Region

Übersicht der Region

GREATER GREEN is the environmental technology meta-cluster of the Greater Region. It develops information and consulting services for the environmental technology industry in the Greater Region. Explicitly the creation of new market entrances for the enterprises stands thereby in the center of the efforts. This is achieved by targeted joint marketing of the Greater Region as an environmental technology competence region. GREATER GREEN acts as a meta-cluster in direct form with the regional coordinators in the partner regions Grand'Est, Saarland, Wallonia and Luxembourg as well as the member clusters connected in the network. The positive side effect of GREATER GREEN is to make the offers of these clusters known across borders.

GREATER GREEN creates a unified corporate identity and develops a common communication and information platform with the homepage It produces regular publications on the environmental technology industries:

  • Water and waste water management
  • Closed loop economy and recycling
  • Renewable Energies
  • Sustainable building

and an inventory of environmental technology in the Greater Region. As a further marketing instrument, a GREATER GREEN-Tours-App will be developed to better visualize environmental solutions and ideas in the Greater Region. Regular events, workshops, meetings and conferences round off the networking and exchange opportunities offered by GREATER GREEN.
