The Cosmetics Cluster UK, formed in 2017, is continuing its support of the newly relaunched Global Cosmetics Cluster, formally The Cosmetics Cluster, International Network (CCIN). The Global network, is managed by Cosmetics Valley in France and supports over 25 Beauty and Cosmetics Clusters worldwide.
Previously the CCIN allowed clusters to share best practice with each other. The next stage of the Global Cosmetics Cluster, is to provide benefits and impact for Cluster Members.
Cosmetics Cluster UK are encouraging beauty and cosmetics companies throughout the supply chain to join and reap the benefits of being a part of a worldwide network.
Lisa Buck, Manager of the Cosmetics Cluster UK said; “The Global Cosmetics Cluster is hosting a rendez-vouz on the 16-17th October in Paris, as part of their Cosmetics 360 event. The event is now open for partner applications for innovative collaborative projects, which will join cluster members at an international scale. The project requests will be published online and B2B meetings with potential partners arranged. If you do not have a project, but would welcome international collaboration, its also worth keeping in touch for potential opportunities. Projects are welcome throughout the supply chain from product safety, testing and counterfeiting to their performance, sustainability and manufacturing including digitalisation and personalisation”.
Justine Hegon, Cosmetics Valley, France, said; “We are looking forward to working with the UK Cosmetics Cluster and their members through the new collaborative Global Cosmetics Cluster. This event and call will identify and support new innovative and collaborative cosmetic projects. This call is open to all actors from the network of each Global Cosmetics Cluster. The main goal is to foster innovation among companies and research units in the cosmetic sector in order to increase international competitiveness and growth.
Therefore, if you have a project idea and need partners to develop it, then apply to this call and participate in B2B meetings. If you have an innovation ready for the market, then apply to participate to Cosmetic 360 exhibition to present your innovation”.
