SCALE-UP creates mutually beneficial collaborations between SMEs and large enterprises. Many corporates recognise the benefits of ‘open innovation’ and are keen to benefit from the innovations that emerge from the dynamic SME innovation ecosystem. SMEs get the chance to bring their products and services to corporate buyers, which can lead to transformational opportunities for collaboration, growth and profitability.

What is SCALE-UP?

  • Scale-Up is a project that helps large companies find collaborations with smaller innovation companies in the field of environmental technology.
  • The project is part of the partly EU-funded Interreg project, which links successful regional clusters of companies in environmental technology.
  • The network is located in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and the United Kingdom.
  • Thus, Scale-Up provides an opportunity to find qualified innovation partners among smaller companies in large parts of Northern Europe.
