Research paper on cluster manager internationalisation skills and keys for success in managing and promoting pan-European Strategic Cluster Partnerships
inno TSD (and their expert JN. Durvy) was commissioned on 10 July by the ECCP platform animator Clusterland on behalf of DG Enterprise and Industry of the European Commission to undertake a study on the results and experiences of these cluster internationalisation projects (ESCP). The aims of the study were to examine the results of the projects, but in particular to focus on the range management skills and communication tools that are required for their successful implementation and the key lessons for future ESCP type projects.
The first results of this paper were presented during a workshop held during the 4th edition of the European Cluster Conference in Brussels on the 20-21st October 2014.

How to build up and manage successfully cluster organizations
All in all 59 participants such as cluster managers and ministry staff from all over Europe and even beyond (Russia and Trinidad and Tobago) joined the Academy.
Participants following the overall curricula or just the module in Linz were trained in a very interactive manner on the cluster management model of Clusterland Upper Austria which also included a case study and a site visit at the premises of our committed partner RIC GmbH & BRP-Powertrain GmbH & CoKG.
On November 24th half day training has been provided by trainers exclusively for people following the whole "Train the Trainers" curricula.
To secure sustainability and also a long lasting benefit for all participants and for Clusterland as well, participants had the opportunity to book individual meetings with the cluster managers of Clusterland (C2C) to discuss joint project ideas (November 28th).
Based on the very positive feedback received, we plan to keep the format in a similar way in the upcoming year.
