Clubster NHL has implemented a specific action programme dedicated to the emergence and support of cooperative research projects led by or implemented by regional stakeholders in nutrition/ health sectors, in cooperation with European stakeholders.
Clubster NHL & Eurasante teams benefit from expertise in the implementation, coordination, and participation of European projects, especially within the framework of the Interreg cross-border and transnational programmes.
In these projects, Clubster NHL has two main tasks:
- to support and to promote research, such as the Interreg IMODE project, the objective of which is to develop new innovative pharmaceutical formulations of DM loaded with bioactive molecules;
- to support for the international development of nutrition and health startups and SMEs, such as the Interreg SEAS 2 GROW project which set up a cross-border accelerator allowing innovative companies in the Two Seas area to cocreate and test their innovations for ageing well across four countries .
Clubster NHL is very active in setting up and supporting the development of European projects (Interreg, H2020) directly involving the cluster or its members.
