The second cluster visit of the P2GreenEST partnership took place in Lyon (France) during Pollutec fair on the 12th and 13th October 2023.

For this second cluster visit, the partnership gathered in Pollutec fair in Lyon. This location was chosen for several reason:

- Pollutec is the biggest international environmental exhibition in France,

- it is a reference meeting place for environmental professionals since 1978,

- an important number of companies from Éa éco-entreprises were exhibitors in the waste, water and eneergy efficiency halls (around 30 companies),

- within the fair, the European Enterprises Network represented by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Rhône Alpes organised B2Bs for clusters and companies.

On the 12th October, the project partners gathered for a physical project meeting before going for a "cluster visit" on Pollutec fair where they met around 10 companies, members of Éa éco-entreprises, chosen according to the field of interest covered by P2GreenEST. This visit was the opportunity to present P2GreenEST project and the upcoming activities and the Serbian trade mission planned in November in particular. 

On the 13th October, the partnership participated to an inter-clustering session organised by European Enterprises Network . This session was dedicated to European Union clusters. The objective was to identify clusters working in the same fields, exchange information and benchmark their activities in order to improve, find synergies as well as future cooperation projects. It was a chance to present P2 GreenEST projet and the services the partnership developed to help EU SMEs to get internationalised through public procurement opportunities in Moldova, Ukraine and Serbia.
