2Ins Clusters MED Project: the commitment of the partnership involving 7 European territories of the Mediterranean area for the creation of SMEs' Innovation and Internationalization Support Clusters continues

The Steering Committee of the project, supervising the progresses carried out in the project implementation, met on 20th and 21st September 2011.

Isla, Malta, October 28th 2011

The activity of the partnership towards the creation of an international clusters network supporting innovative entrepreneurship goes on in the framework of the 2INS Clusters MED Project (2Ins Clusters - SMEs' Innovation and Internationalization Support Clusters MED Programme 2007-2013).

The 2nd international Steering Committee of the project, organised by the Region of Attika and the Bic of Attika, Lead Partner of the project, held in Lavrio (Greece) on September 20th and 21st 2011, with a rich work schedule. The Components for the implementation of the Project were examined, the progress of the various phases verified and the engagements updated.

15 representatives of the whole partnership attended the meeting: Bic of Attika (Lead Partner), University of Patras, Region of Attika, Sophia Antipolis, Balearic Islands University-Enterprise Foundation (FUEIB), Isla Municipality (Malta). From Italy Sviluppo Basilicata and the Province of Matera were present.

To this day the partners have completed the preliminary analysis on the target territories aimed at identifying the barriers against the development of SMEs' innovation and internationalization, with a particular focus on cultural and creative economy, that is considered as a main field of experimentation for the potential socio-economic development. The analyses investigate not only the socio-economic features of the territories, but also the regional systems fostering innovation and internationalization, and identify the actors facilitating innovation and internationalization in each region.

These analyses are the harbinger for the realization of the ‘2Ins Clusters', designed as tools supporting the knowledge transfer and enterprise development. The ‘2Ins Clusters' will be established within the structures of the partnership and will be based on rules, systems and common tools to promote homogeneous knowledge and quality, oriented towards competitive entrepreneurship. They will be animated by the so-called ‘Facilitators' and by an international network of experts for the collection, processing and reallocation of knowledge, so guaranteeing a harmonized and coordinated action for the effective cooperation of territorial clusters and, consequently, for the respective local systems.

During the meeting, the Committee deepened the curricular aspects of the ‘2In Facilitator' figure, which will be equipped with methodological tools to support innovative and internationalized entrepreneurship.

Each Partner is cooperating to the implementation of these tools in a different way. The realization of the following tools has been scheduled: a Capacity Audit Methodology for enterprises, a Guide for rational Business Planning, a Guide to financial sources and means available for SMEs, a Study concerning the methodology for the planning and the implementation of development strategies.

The process of pilot application will involve, in addition to all partners' structures, a considerable number of actors belonging to all relevant categories, starting from the local level and working and cooperating within international contexts through the realization of a computing, methodological, and organizational platform, whose design is in progress.


2Ins Cluster project has the aim to identify, develop and implement (through a common transnational methodology and joint actions) territorial Clusters supporting SMEs' Innovation and Internationalization (‘2InS Clusters') by involving local stakeholders (enterprises, agencies for knowledge development and dissemination, organizations and structures supporting entrepreneurial culture, internationalization and innovation, governmental agencies, institutes for research and training, Chambers of Commerce, Trade Unions, experts and policy-makers of the sectors identified during the implementation of the project, consulting firms).

The project has been approved by the European Commission in the framework of the MED Programme and implemented, in Malta, by Isla Local Council

Implementation period (3 years: July 2010-July 2013).

Europe for Citizens Programme – Network of Twinned Towns


Zarasai – Lithuania


Between the 13 and 17 October 2011 a Council delegation composed by the Vice Mayor Justin John Camilleri, Executive Secretary Arthur Perici, Galeann Calleja - Administration Executive / ESF Project Leader at Easy School of Languages ​​and Kenneth Borg - EU Fund Manager, Tourism & Sustainable Developement Unit OPM, attended for the kick off meeting of the Project Get to Know in Zarasai - Lithuania. This project is managed by the municipality of Zarasai as Lead Partner in conjunction with partners from Mottafollone (Italy), Zdunska Wola (Poland), Balan-Mire (France) and Isla Local Council (Malta). Get to Know is being financed by the European Union under the Europe for Citizens Programme - Network of Twinned Towns.

The purpose of the first phase of the project was to bring together representatives from the five participating countries to discuss 1) agreement on cultural themes, detection of contacts and the development of communication in the field of tourism promotion, 2) organisation of seminars for participants in Zarasai, 3) an overview of ancient traditions, 4) to prepare a plan for further development in the tourism sector along with devising a plan of cooperation (based on development of promotion under the Program of Europe for  Citizens in 2012, 5) to prepare a preliminary plan for a network among the partners for cooperation in the field of tourism. Therefore the representatives from the participating countries together with professionals in the field of tourism held several meetings and workshops during the 13 and 17 October 2011. Several discussions were held on the design of future cooperation for cultural tourism. Two key documents were drawn up, highlighting: a plan of cooperation in tourism between 2012 and 2014 as well as promotion of tourism in light of proposals for funding under various programs of the European Union.

The opening session of the programme was held in the Municipality of Zarasai where opening speeches were addressed by the Deputy Mayor of Zarasai
Mrs. Stase Gostautiene
and Jurgita Kostiakovaite - project manager. Representatives from the participating countries gave presentations dealing with an overview and description on the respective cities and cultural tourism. Executive Secretary Arthur Perici gave the presentation on the locality of Isla. Following the presentations a discussion on what is being expected from this project was held. Amongst the important factors, these results were brought up: to create a network for future collaboration, exchanges of best practices, finding partners for new projects, more information on the participating countries, development of projects for the future and further promotion of the countries involved in the project.

A number of cultural visits were included during the programme where we had to opportunity to visit the Watermill in Slyninka being the prime of Preservation of Cultural Heritage and also the last infrastructural project in Zarasai for 2011, a project under sustainable tourism.

On the second day we had the opportunity to visit touristic sites vis a vie the cultural promotion of Zarasai, including the Multifunctional Centre of Antaliepte, Art Gallery of Dusetos, Horse Racetracks in Didziadvaris. We also met with the community of Baltriskes (Monastery of Tiberiada), we visited The Church of Saint Mary in Salakas, the Visitor Centre of Grazute Regional Park. The evening session was focused on the presentation of cultural integration, having the main aim for each participating country to present a presentation via DVD on Folk Dances and Traditional Music. The scope was to discover similarities and differences within these different cultures. We had the opportunity  to follow a programme of Folk Dancing from one of the Folk Groups in Zarasai.

The third day addressed challenging and interesting discussions and workshops on the preparation of a plan for international cooperation between 2012 and 2014 between the participating countries within the project. Discussions were held on a Marketing Plan in the field of cultural tourism development. This session was led by Rita Mikailiene (Lecturer and Marketing Specialist). Both the Marketing Plan and the International Cooperation Plan will be discussed further and finalised during the second phase of the project in February 2012, where political and strategic planners from the five partner countries will meet to draw up the cultural understanding and the principles for future relationship.

During the year 2012 an interactive game will be organised looking into the contribution of  European citizens for the creation of creativity looking at the development of cultural tourism and the image of future cities. This event will be held during the Senglea Maritime Events in 2012, where amongst us we will have representatives from the city of Zarasai. They will have the opportunity to put up and exhibition (showcasing promotion) on Zarasai and an information stand. In Malta we will draw up an action plan for long-term cooperation between the cities of Isla and Zarasai.

The final event to be held within the Project – Get to Know – will be a summer camp which will bring together 140 youths from Europe between the age of 16 and 36 years. The main scope of this camp will focus on active participation of youths and to gain cultural knowledge, national identity and cultural dialogue.

Senglea Marittima 2011


Senglea Marittima 2011 organised by the Isla local Council will be held on 17-18-19 June, 2011, at limelight locations within Isla. The council organises the festival to safeguard the town’s socio-historical and cultural heritage while raises awareness of the potential of the locality, which can be developed further. Thanks to its fortifications, historic buildings, living history and strong links with the sea, there is so much that can be discovered in Senglea. Thus the audience will embark on a voyage of discovery.


A focal point of activities will actually be the unique Macina, which will host static exhibitions, audio-visual displays, lectures and performances over three days. On Friday night the main church’s square will revive the Knight’s era through the ambience and happenings purposely set up for the festival. The main square (4th September Square) and its surroundings will depict the pre World War II culture and environment; the re-enacted World War II fear and destruction; and the post war slow battered regeneration. The latter will be re-lived by the audience.


Saturday, 18th June is jam-packed with different activities as from the morning including displays, re-enactments, parades, band marches, exhibitions and more. Along this day Senglean entities and the past EDEN award-winning localities including Nadur, Santa Lucia Hamlet of Kercem and Mellieha will be participating with street and corner arts from the centre right down towards the seafront.


The final morning and afternoon (Sunday 19 June, 2010) will be entirely dedicated to marine activities, water sports and displays, and the renown Macina re-enactment at the Macina itself and its waterfront surroundings.

Have you ever heard the phrase reduce, reuse and recycle. I am sure that most of you have heard it! But not everyone that has heard it realises its importance.  Unfortunately our planet is suffering from Global Warming, which can cause disasters all around the World. So if you care about the World we live in, our home , please start living by the phrase Reduce , Reuse and Recycle. This phrase not only applies to Global warming but applies also to pollution which is causing asthmatic problems  especially to children. You may be asking the question, Why does it reduce pollution and Global Warming? It reduces pollution because if you Reduce, Reuse and Recycle the objects in your everyday life, less manufacturing will be needed thus less carbon emissions will be let out into the air and the ozone layer will start to repair itself.


We also need to save water ! I urge you to turn your water taps off when not in use and maybe to upgrade to non drip taps at your home. We also could think about inventing a way how we could save rain water and use it to our advantage. A very important thing we must know become aware of is Saving Electricity. I urge all the Maltese people to unplug things that are not in use at the moment. When we don’t unplug them they are still making use of electricity. Thus I propose another phrase you should live under and this is the phrase switch off ! flick off! You can also install photovoltaic cells on your roof that help lower the consumption of energy and electricity!


Thus I conclude that if you love yourself, your family, your friends, the whole human race and our mother the Planet Earth, then SAVE ENERGY !!!

Twinning Fara San Martino



Press Release


Fara San Martino, Italy European Cultural Week


Town Twinning with the City of Isla (MALTA)


The community of Fara San Martino welcomed the Mayor of the city of Isla (Malta), Joseph Casha, accompanied by a delegation of 64 citizens, between the 9th and 17th April 2011 during a Town Twinning Citizens’ Meeting leading to the official Twinning between the two localities.


Through the Europe for Citizens’ programme, the EACEA (the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency, an agency belonging to the European Commission whom is responsible for European’s programmes in Cultural and Audiovisual sectors) with a European Programme for the citizens, financed such project.


The representatives of the Senglean Community spent 8 days in Fara San Martino whereby they participated in a number of activities and conferences planned to reinforce the relationships between the two communities and officialize the twinning with the aim to build a long lasting and sustainable relationship.


Municipalities started their relationship in 2004 when they meet at the Convention “Identity and Difference” held in Fara S. Martino. There they discovered a common cultural heritage rooted in the art of the Dutch painter, Maurits Cornelis Escher who, during his lifetime, traveled and worked in the two cities.


The collaboration continued to reinforce in 2009 where a delegation from Fara San Martino participated actively during a Town Twinning Citizens’ Meeting organized in Malta by the Isla Local Council. The conference ended with a signed joint declaration by both Mayors together with four other Mayors from other Italian Communities, to continue this reciprocal collaboration and to get to know each other better for a lifelong collaboration.


The 2011 Town Twinning Citizens’ Meeting focused on the involvement of the local organisations operating in a civil and active society. Conference themes and Workshops addressed: Active European Citizens’, Intercultural Dialogue and Multilingualism, Social Problems and Sports Activities for a better Health and Social Inclusion. The main theme was the environmental voluntary sector, disability, sport and education, in line with the 2011 European year dedicated to the voluntaries.



Sengleans had also the possibility to understand better the Italian Language through sessions held to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Unity of Italy.

A number of cultural events have been included in the programme; traditional crafts and skills exhibition. At the same time invited participants have been involved in the everyday life of the local community to make them feel temporary citizens and not simply tourists. They visited the local centre for pensioners and disabled people and other associations including the centre for environmental education.


This Twinning will maintain permanent relations not only between the two Municipalities, but especially among our respective people in order to ensure a better mutual understanding aimed at developing a sense of being part of Europe.


Thus it is the intention of both parties to embark on new opportunities offered through Europe for Citizens’ for the continuation of future European Projects. Through the set-up of such networking between the Twinned Municipalities, we are looking into the involvement of Community First, thus addressing future projects within EACEA and other EU Programmes.


The activities were held at the Centro Congressi of Hotel del Camerlengo whereby on Saturday 16th April an official signing ceremony of the Twinning Agreement was held and both Mayors swear fraternity.

PRESS RELEASE – Malta March 2011

The Isla Local Council and SMEs’ Internationalization Support Clusters – The Isla LC and the 2InS Clusters Project


The 2InS Clusters transnational project for the creation of clusters supporting innovation and internationalisation of SMEs has started (2Ins Clusters - SMEs’ Innovation and Internationalization Support Clusters MED Programme 2007-2013).


The goals of the Project, that has been approved by the European Commission within MED Programme and implemented by the Isla Local Council, are to identify, develop and implement (through a common methodology and transnational joint actions) Territorial clusters supporting innovation and internationalisation of SMEs (“2InS Clusters”) by involving local stakeholders.


2InS aims in creating a coherent mechanism for developing and operating competent, viable Territorial level Collaborative Platforms (“SMEs’ Innovation and Internationalization Support Clusters”-2InS Clusters), involving local key-Actors of all critical fields and levels; the emphasis will be placed on Organizations/Structures supporting Knowledge Transfer and development of Entrepreneurship, and on corresponding Governmental Agencies, which will be called upon to establish synergetic interventions based on common rules, systems and tools, in favour of knowledge-based, quality orientated and competitive entrepreneurship.  The 2InS Clusters will cooperate in the frame of a Transnational Expert Network, which will act as a powerful means for collection, processing and re-distribution of knowledge, providing also for coordinated and harmonized action and effective cooperation among the Clusters and –consequently- their local systems.


The first Steering Committee of the project, organized by Sviluppo Basilicata in the Sassi of Matera, took place on 25th and 26th January with the aim to boost a strong interconnection among the partners for the start up and the implementation of the first activities of each component and work phase.

About 20 representatives of the whole partnership (EC Business and Innovation Centre of Attika (Lead Partner), UNIVERSITY OF PATRAS - DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION, Region of Attica, CCIMP Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Marseille, Antipolis Innovation Campus, SVILUPPO BASILICATA SPA, Province of Matera, University-Enterprise of the Balearic Islands Foundation (FUEIB), Isla Local Council of Malta were present. In addition to the wok session, the  meeting allowed to known the UNESCO site not only from an architectural point of view, but also as a potential attractor of productivity and employment (the partners had the chance to visit the Cultural Incubator that is going to be launched to host cultural enterprises initiatives).


7 Clusters will be established at each partner’s premises, and will base their operation on common rules and tools, such as an integrated management system, methodological instruments concerning business internationalisation and technology transfer together with the relevant computer applications, and will supply integrated support, consultancy and capacity building to pilot SMEs within the territorial areas of the development partnership.


The project will involve companies; agencies for the development and the dissemination of knowledge; organisations and structures supporting entrepreneurship, internationalisation and innovation among SMEs; government agencies; research and training centres; Chambers of Commerce; trade unions; experts and policy makers in the fields that will be identified during the project’s  implementation; consultancy companies.


According to Joseph Casha, Mayor of Isla Local Council,

these projects have the aim to disseminate the results and the awareness among regional structures and trade associations, with a special regard to the activities implemented by the other European States towards enterprise development.

Among the prerequisites for SMEs’ success, the main are the access to structured knowledge processes, innovation and internationalisation dissemination and transfer; therefore the creation of the envisaged structures (2InSClusters) at a local level with the figures of facilitators (“2InS facilitators") can ensure the necessary support for innovation and internationalization of SMEs as real "SMEs mentors”, starting from territorial level, acting and working within international contexts through a methodological and organizational platform that must prove clear, rational and organized in terms of operation and sustainability.

The 2InS mechanism, indeed, aims to transfer the knowledge process as a complementary factor for the sustainable development and the competitiveness of SMEs’ and for the use of local partnerships as a potentially powerful mean to support SMEs’ innovation and internationalization.



The project is implemented by 9 partners coming from 5 different countries of the Mediterranean area: Greece (Attika Region and West Greece), France (Provence – Alpes – Cote d’Azur), Italy (Basilicata), Spain (Balearic Islands) and Isla (Malta).

Festival ta' Bliet Storiċi

Matul dawn l-aħħar snin l-Awtorita Maltija għat-Turiżmu organizzat diversi Festivals fl-lokalitajiet differenti ta' Malta.

L-għan li għalih din l-Awtorita torganizza dawn il-festivals huwa biex torganizza attivita' kulturali ta' livell professjonali bl-aċċenn fuq l-istorja u l-folklore marbuta mal-lokalita', attivita' li tkun apprezzata kemm mill-Maltin kif ukoll mill-barranin.

Il-Kunsill ta' l-Isla ħass li dan huwa proġett utli ħafna għal belt bħal ma' hija tagħna li għandha ħafna x'toffri f'dak li huwa talent, bini storiku u storja. Għaldaqstant ma' baqgħax lura u ħa sehem impenjattiv billi ġurnata mill-programm imtella' mill-Awtorita Maltija għat-Turiżmu kien imtella' ġewwa l-Isla. Din il-ħidma saret bil-kollaborazzjoni sħiħa ta' dan il-Kunsill.

Konferenza "Identity & Difference" Comune di Goriano Sicoli (Abruzzo)

Il-Kunsill Lokali Isla ġie mistieden mill-Comune di Goriano Sicoli fir-Reġġjun ta' l-Abruzzo l-Italja, biex jipparteċipa f'din il-konferenza Internazzjonali bit-tema "L-Identita u d-Differenza - Id-Diversi Kulturi bħala Identifikazzjoni Ewropeja".

Din il-konferenza nżammet f'Abruzzo l-Italja bejn il-21 u s-26 ta' Lulju, 2004. Għal din il-konferenza l-Kunsill kien irrapreżentat mis-Sindku Joseph Casha u miż-żewġ Kunsillieri Mario Mizzi u Reno Chircop flimkien mas-Sinjura Elizabeth Grech (staff)u mis-sinjuri Fabian Mangion, Joseph Abela, Arthur Perici u Stephania Vella fejn ipparteċipaw b'diskorsi u anke xi slides fuq l-Isla.

L-erbgħa pajjiżi l-oħra li ħadu sehem f'din il-Konferenza flimkien ma' Malta kienu Spanja, l-Olanda, Franza u l-Italja. Għalkemm dawn il-pajjiżi għandhom id-diversi kulturi tagħhom, dawn għandhom wirt kulturali komuni bix-xogħol li għamel u ħalla l-artist Daniz M. C. Escher.

L-għan ta' din il-konferenza kien li b'xiehda ta' dan ix-xogħol minn dan l-artist Daniz issaħħaħ il-wirt identiku kulturali f'viżjoni Ewropeja. Din l-integrazzjoni fuq bażi kulturali turi biċ-ċar kif bliet kbar jistgħu jiltaqgħu ma' Muniċipalitajiet żgħar bħal dak ta' l-Isla jistgħu jitħalltu ma' popolazzjoni akbar minnhom fuq bażi kulturali.

Għal din il-Konferenza ġew mistiedna wkoll membri parlamentari Ewropej, Reġġjonali, kif ukoll diversi Sindki u Kunsillieri ta' Muniċipalitajiet f'Abruzzo. Il-kunsill ta' l-Isla permezz tad-delegazzjoni tiegħu ħa sehem attiv f'din il-Konferenza billi ppreżentaw il-Kultura ta' l-Isla permezz ta' slides dwar il-postijiet li fuqhom l-artist M. S. Escher għamel xi pitturi.

Fl'egħluq ta' din il-Konferenza il-Muniċipalitajiet li ħadu sehem f'din il-Konferenza (madwar 12 fosthom l-Isla) iffirmaw protokol bil-għan li din il-koperazzjoni li bdiet f'Abruzzo tikber u tissaħħaħ aktar fi proġetti reċiproki fil-futur.
