Useful documents for cluster development

Author: Hamar László | September 10. 2013.

A wide selection of documents have been prepared and compiled recently at CCIPB that can be utilized by clusters of other regions.

CCIPB played an active role in several cluster development projects in order to support start-up and developed clusters of the region. The success of initiatives is shown by the interest of other exports from partner regions who are interested in new methods and best practices as well


Cluster and Network Cooperation for Business Success in Central Europe is a project where CCIPB, jointly with cluster development organisations fromseven other EU countries focused on  cluster management, cluster optimisation and cluster internationalisationm. There was a "flagship" cluster in three working groups for the trainings compiled.

The majority of documents are in English, the download link can be found at the end of the Document List.


The project was implemented within the Central Europe Program cofinanced by the EU and Hungary..
