Arctic Cluster, or ‘Arctic Collaboration to Support More Efficient Dissemination of Arctic Cooperation Project Results’, is a new interregional project that involves three projects funded under three different programmes: SECURE, EEBAK and GrAB. The partnership comprises 15 partner regions from Canada, Europe and Russian Federation that are addressing similar themes and territorial challenges on energy efficiency and renewable solutions for buildings.
The project aims to increase awareness and transfer good energy practices about energy solutions, and it's being developed under Arctic Cooperation cross-programme, encouraged and mandated by the European Commission to provide input for establishing research and investment priorities in the European Arctic area. It is led by Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme also involving the following funding programmes: Interreg Botnia-Atlantica, Interreg Nord, Kolarctic CBC and Karelia CBC.
All the SECURE project partners are taking part in Arctic Cluster and learning from the expertise of the other two participating projects.
