Case study: Producer Services for European Sustainability and Competitiveness (PROSESC)
Automotive cluster programme (PROSESC): this project aimed to support green innovation in the road transport sector. The NCC-owned Hethel Engineering Centre along with nine other partners from seven different EU countries identified good practices and made recommendations to policy makers.
This project received a contribution of €1m from the programme over the €1.3m total budget.
Please note that this project was funded under the previous programme (2007-2013) and that the new programme (2014-2020) has different objectives and expectations.
