Your input matters - tell us what you want from our webinars!
At the European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP), we want to help clusters in developing new skills and building capacity.
Over the course of this year, we organised four capacity-building webinars with inspiring speakers and on the burning issues for the cluster community, such as cluster responses to the COVID-19 crisis and digitalisation. Next year, we want to continue to offer an even more tailor-made series of webinars for clusters and cluster managers.
To do this, we need your help! Please take part in our needs survey and answer a few questions about your or your cluster’s strategic priorities, core challenges, and learning needs for 2021. Your responses will help us to shape the webinars for next year!
Access the survey HERE.
Filling in the questionnaire will take less than 15 minutes of your time and your contribution will be anonymous.
The survey will remain open until 21 December, 2020.
