Success Story / Achievements: 

*As a result of intersectorial activities between the ICT partners and the logistics sector, several needs appeared. One major need was that of time of processes and level of knowledge of the merchandise state within the cargo air transportation. Therefore, several cluster's companies implemented a one-stop digital system within the aerial logistics.

* As a result from the intersectorial activity between ICT and retail sectors, it was drawn the need of a platform integrating both final user adquisition and identification. A collaborative project between cluster's members was carried out.

* From the interaction between three clusters, Clúster Digital, Kids Clúster and Railgrup, and a public railway operator, acting as the demand party, a project defines several proposals for the creation of spaces and real dynamics, such as games and theatrical performances within the railway ecosystem.

Why should partners choose you for cooperation?: 

The Clúster Digital de Catalunya, located in Barcelona, aggregates more than 50 members within the Catalan ICT ecosystem of which it has become, de facto, a significant representative.

It was created as a meeting place and a network for start-ups, SMEs, large firms, and other entities to drive the competitiveness of the Catalan ICT sector, thereby emphasising a new business culture based on collaboration and open innovation.

Its networking model is based on the strength of the interactions between ICT companies, thus generating synergies, knowledge, and projects among them.
