Cosmetic4Wellbeing, a CCIN achievment
CCIN – Cosmetics Clusters International Network – is the global network of clusters dedicated to innovation in cosmetics sector. It currently composed of 21 international clusters from the entire cosmetic value chain. The CCIN was inaugurated in 2016 on the Cosmetics 360 exhibition fair, on the initiative of its founding members who wanted to share good practices and collaborate on joint projects. As a result and only after two years of existence, CCIN has allowed its members to win a Cluster Go International tender under COSME European program: C4W project. A great achievement and we hope CCIN will foster other fruitful collaborative projects!
