CL.I.MA.TE. is an European Research and Innovation Cluster for Advanced Materials and Industrial Technologies, with its headquarters located in the heart of Bucharest, the capital city of Romania. It is organized as a not-for-profit association and it is designed and equipped to play the dynamic and catalyzing role of a cluster entity which is an ecosystem generator in the core.
CL.I.MA.TE. Cluster initiative was launched in the summer of 2016 by a group of people who are leaders or champions in their fields of action, people passionate about making applicable differences through a diversity of venues, technologies, innovations and tools.
This common drive to be on the top of the game and to make things better brought together relevant private companies, universities, public authorities, NGOs and innovating individuals among its founding members, making it from the start an influencing network and an attractive place to be.
Following this inspiring begining, the cluster aims to grow organically by attracting and bonding naturally with national and international players alike.
Our mission is to jointly develop cutting-edge technologies whilst supporting Romanian current technological expertise by providing impetus for the further development of national centers of excellence and by international collaboration.
We also aim to research and develop strategies, tools, methods, processes and platforms that hold a strong potential to accomplish cluster members common goals at an accelerated rate and to open the possibilities for new opportunities
From a more fundamental perspective, CL.I.MA.TE. Cluster’s mission is to build bridges between existing solutions and present problems and between existing solutions and better solutions.
Another dimension of our mission is to explore unmapped territories in order to spot new markets in gaps and new gaps in markets, but to also research and develop new solutions to upcoming problems.
