The aim of the project is to strengthen the European Project Offices of the CIT centres in the Region of Murcia thanks to a collaborative strategy that optimises and pools resources.
The four CIT centres in the Region of Murcia (CETEM, CTC, CTM and CTMETAL) act as catalysts for innovation among their associated companies and client companies with both regional and national coverage. The R&D projects and advanced technological services carried out by the centres are based on the business needs of one of these areas: agri-food and canning, metal-mechanical sector, marble and stone, furniture, wood and auxiliary sectors. Between the four centres, they bring together more than 600 associated companies and 1200 clients.
The four centres have pooled their resources to carry out a reorientation strategy and promote cooperation between centres in the field of European projects. They have therefore decided to act jointly through the MurciaCoopera project.
The overall objective of the MurciaCoopera project is to strengthen the European Project Offices of the CIT centres in the Region of Murcia through a collaborative strategy to optimise and pool resources.
