Cluster organisations come in many shapes, sizes, structures, are developed top-down or bottom-up, follow various objectives and therefore it is difficult to create a universal definition that applies exactly to each organization.
A common denominator is however given by the European Commission defining innovation clusters as "structures or organised groups of independent parties (such as innovative start-ups, small, medium and large enterprises, as well as research and knowledge dissemination organisations, non-for-profit organisations and other related economic actors) designed to stimulate innovative activity by promoting sharing of facilities and exchange of knowledge and expertise and by contributing effectively to knowledge transfer, networking, information dissemination and collaboration among the undertakings and other organisations in the cluster".
This is the stage on which cluster organisations present themselves - their structures, services, experiences and above all, their interest in cooperation with peers. Whether through mapping or listing, we invite you to:
- explore this diverse cluster community
- identify your potential cooperation partner
- show the world what you are good at - by profiling your organisation !
