Final conference CluStrat project
On 18th September 2014 in Venice, will take place the final conference of the Clustrat project.
CluStrat partners have joined forces to develop and test new cluster concepts in order to strengthen the competitiveness of clusters in Central Europe. As a result, a joint strategy for Central Europe has been developed on:
- promoting the anticipation and exploitation of changing market demands as a consequence of societal challenges such as climate or demographic change through clusters (Emerging Industries);
- fostering the inclusion of cross-cutting issues such as internationalization, technology transfer and gender in innovation in clusters (Cross-Cutting Issues).
The theme of the conference is "New cluster concepts for cluster policies in Europe". The 18 project partners from 8 Central European Countries have been working 3 years on new cluster concepts in order to better exploit the opportunities offered by new Emerging Industries. A special focus was on creating linkages between traditional sectors and the so-called Key Enabling Technologies in order to foster innovation.
In the morning session the results of the CluStrat project will be presented together with the European policies to support clusters and entrepreneurship.
In the afternoon session the participants will be able to learn about future development for the Central Europe Area through the presentation of the Central Europe Programme 2014-2020.
Furthermore there will be a panel discussion on how to strengthen regional competitiveness through clusters, comparing also experiences from other projects.
