“The trip was very beneficial, enabling us to connect with numerous SMEs in our host's Cluster Network. We also initiated dialogues that could foster future partnerships. Notably, we gained insights into the green sector and Finland's corporate culture, enhancing our understanding of circular economy practices. The trip led to multiple collaboration opportunities, presenting an enhanced view of the VO's home market operation, and broadening our perspective on international business strategies. It allowed us to establish valuable business contacts for our company and cluster partners, fostering an environment for growth and synergy. The ClusterXchange trip was a huge success. It mixed learning, meeting new people, and a focus on sustainability. We also had important B2B meetings”, says Dimitri.
