4th BSR STARS Cluster-to-Cluster Conference and Matchmaking


Internationalisation – the Strategic Way   

Europe’s premier meeting event for clusters returns. Last year’s conference in Copenhagen attracted more than 150 clusters from 32 countries resulting in 544 cluster-to-cluster matchmaking meetings. The last two years the event has been sold out. The 4th edition will be just as exciting.

What to expect
Excellent matchmaking opportunities with Europe’s leading cluster organisations; Lots of networking opportunities; a thrilling interactive programme and a vibrant atmosphere.

Who can participate
Cluster mangers and key cluster staff from clusters with at least a bronze label according to the European Cluster Excellence Initiative (ECEI).

Who can you meet
Cluster managers from all of Europe. The event is for cluster managers and key staff. 150 clusters are expected to participate. The aim of the conference is to create a space where cluster managers can meet,
network and build common projects.

Two rounds of cluster-to-cluster matchmaking Pre-planned and pre-booked meetings between the participants. You can book (or be booked for) up to seven meetings with clusters of your own choice. The
matchmaking is powered by Enterprise Europe Network.

A unique venue
Matchmaking, networking and knowledge sharing require the right surroundings. We have found that in the heart of Warsaw. The mansion Endorfina Foksal was built in 1875 and has successfully been turned into a top-modern spacious conference venue.

Endorfina Foksal, Konstanty Zamoyski Palace // ul. Foksal 2 // 00-366 Warsaw
