Successful cluster management in Central Europe: CNCB results

Author: Hamar László | January 15. 2013.

(Updated in August 2013)

Successful cluster management in Central Europe: results from the CNCB survey and real-life applications in European clusters will be presented in Venice, Italy.

The CENTRAL EUROPE project “Cluster and Network Cooperation for Business Success in Central Europe” (CNCB) is designed to foster clusters’ competitiveness and innovation capacities. This is done by providing a practical tool-box for clusters about how to successfully manage and optimize a cluster and which strategies to employ when going international.

The CNCB team presented project results on February 13th, 2013 at the CNCB Final Conference in Venice. Based on a comprehensive two-tiered survey including an online questionnaire with 97 responding cluster managers throughout CE, followed by in-depth interviews, requirements were derived for successful cluster management in Central Europe. Specifically, the consortium focused on the areas of cluster management training, cluster optimization and going international strategies. As a consequence, the results gained in the survey were applied and implemented with cooperating pilot clusters.
