Synthesis of the overall analysis including recommendations for the setting-up of the Join Action Plan
This deliverable D1.4C presents a synthesis of the overall analysis derived from the SWOT analysis, as well as recommendations for setting up the Joint Action Plan (JAP).
The synthesis of the overall analysis is based on the SWOT analysis reported in the deliverable D1.4A.
In that report, a SWOT chart was presented for each cluster. These charts were based on an analysis of factors internal and external (in particular the territory offer) to the clusters. The internal analysis was used to identify the clusters’ strengths and weaknesses; the external analysis its opportunities and threats. Both the internal and external analyses were performed using data gathered during previous tasks, including the review of research entities at the local/regional level (D1.1), the review of business entities at the local/regional level (D1.2) and the review of the local/regional entities and their related policies (D1.3).

The SWOT charts were used to analyse and compare the clusters, and provided a first basis for defining recommendations for setting up the JAP (Joint Action Plan). General actions were identified for each cluster based on their unique combination of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
The recommendations for setting up the Joint Action Plan (JAP) are based on the results of the SWOT analysis (the general actions identified by each cluster) and were reported in the deliverable D1.4B.
In that report, the clusters proposed a set of recommendations based on each general action. The recommendations were either designed to be considered individually by the clusters, or through the Joint Action Plan as joint recommendations applying to at least two Clusterplast clusters. For the joint recommendations, the synthesis of the overall analysis was used to identify potential areas of cooperation between clusters, and each joint recommendation was linked to the following areas of the JAP:
1 - Sharing RTD infrastructures,
2 - Knowledge transfer,
3 - Mobility plan,
4 - Selection of research projects,
5 - Fostering Entrepreneurship,
6 –Setting up integrated and relevant education/training strategies,
7 - Mutual learning and mentoring.
