Connecting innovators to industry leaders

At Cambridge Cleantech, one of our key goals is to connect innovators with corporates through Meet the Buyer programmes. Cambridge Cleantech is a member of SCALE-UP, a collaboration between existing, successful regional cleantech clusters in Europe that gives cleantech entrepreneurs the opportunity to tap into cleantech networks across Europe. Our aim is to help innovative cleantech companies scale and for corporates to meet the most game-changing innovators in this sector. Since the Interreg SCALE UP project began in 2017, the five cleantech clusters in Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom have successfully connected more than 500 innovative SMEs to corporate buyers.
