ACTION - Association of Cleantech Incubators of New England

Progetto Manifattura is collaborating with ACTION, the Association of Cleantech Incubators of New England as a founding sponsor.

The Association of Cleantech Incubators of New England (ACTION) is New England’s leading network of cleantech incubators that shares common goals of accelerating the growth and success of early-stage companies, and strengthening the regional cleantech cluster.

The collaboration means that Progetto Manifattura and ACTION share best practices. In practice, it lets both networks' early stage companies access new markets. The collaboration showcases each party’s capabilities and participants. The combined clusters offer access to expanded markets and resources.


Eco World Styria (Graz, Austria)

Progetto Manifattura has started a relationship of knowledge and sharing with one of the most important cleantech clusters on European leve, Eco World Styria. For this purpose a delegation of entrepreneurs being part of the sustainable building sector have visited the Austrian universities and research centers.


GCCA - Global Cleantech Cluster Association

Progetto Manifattura is a member of GCCA.

The GCCA currently consists of 35 Global Clusters members which represent 4,000 Cleantech Companies worldwide. The GCCA strives for business excellence. We believe in sharing best practices as well as insights among all Cleantech cluster managers, including working alongside different groups to aid the development of successful measures for various Cleantech cluster-based activities. The GCCA provides networking as well as collaboration to all members. All clusters and cluster partners around the world have direct access to one another.

Many of these clusters have regularly scheduled manager meetings either face-to-face or via VOIP and other telecommunication options. GCCA provides visibility, exposure and complete recognition. This includes not only the website, but also meetings and events. One of the objectives at the GCCA is to make local Cleantech clusters global, by providing the unique opportunity to talk with other clusters on the other side of the world and open up brand new marketing opportunities. For example, there is the GCCA Later Stage Award, which is a collaborative effort between the GCCA and its technology platform partner, Skipso.
