Project: CLAY

Duration: 2018 – 2023 / phase 1 (36 months) + phase 2 (24 months)

CLAY boosts SME competitiveness in the ceramic sector through interregional policy learning to support innovation in technologies, processes and products.

Artistic ceramics, as a traditional sector made up largely of small and micro enterprises, has been hit particularly hard by economic crisis, low-cost competition and restricted access to some non-EU markets.
Globalisation has challen ged this sector, which represents a central part of European tradition, but has also provided opportunities. In order to take advantage ofthese opportunities, the ceramics sector must prioritise new technologies, strengthen brands and develop services to maintain competitive advantage. Publicpolicy must support this.
The Innovation Union flagship initiative is designed to speed up and improve the way we conceive, develop, produce and access new products, industrial processesand services. This is what CLAY proposes for the artistic ceramic sector, in line with the recent drive towards advanced manufacturing.
CLAY uses interregional exchange to achieve its objectives. All regions in the consortium have both important ceramics traditions and a growing basin ofinnovative SMEs, seeking market opportunities. They have all identified the challenge of matching these two elements of their regional economy, for the benefitof both. Interregional exchange will help them to identify solutions to the challenge,through improving regional programmes that can support the above described innovation in artistic ceramic SMEs.
The overall objective is to ensure that selected policy instruments are adapted to support an important traditional sector to survive and flourish in today's globalenvironment. This will benefit the artistic ceramic sector and other sectors of the regional economy involved in innovation in industrial processes.
Thanks to improved policy instruments for SME competitiveness in 5 European regions, in the mid-to-long term, CLAY regions will see a greater number of artisticceramics SMEs surviving and thriving. Greater SME competitiveness contribute to the overall aim of socio-economic cohesion and growth.
