Gold Label of Cluster Excellence for Nanoprogress

Submitted by Alina Danieles… on 04 April 2018

INNO-DROP partner from the Czech Republic, Nanoprogress, has recently been awarded with the Gold Label of Cluster Excellence,awareded within the framework of the European Cluster Excellence Initiative (ECEI). The audit was conducted in December 2017, after two years of preparation. This certification supports Nanoprogress positioning among the "group of excellence" in the European cluster management ecosystem. Only sixty clusters in Europe have reached the Gold Label of the ECEI.

The "Cluster Management Excellence Label GOLD - Proven for Cluster Excellence" of the European Cluster Excellence Initiative acknowledges cluster organisations that demonstrate highly sophisticated cluster management and that are committed to further improve their organisational structures and routines for the benefit of an even higher performance. Beside benchmarking and improving its management performance, Nanoprogress aims with the Gold Label to enhance the Cluster's visibility, as well as its members; it will also facilitate and simplify transnational cross-cluster cooperation with key enterprises and research organizations.

Nanoprogress is member of INNO-DROP consortium, a Cluster Excellence project running since November 2016 and formed by four organizations, that aim to upgrade its management performance and benchmark its activities and working methods: ZINNAE (Spain) and Aqua Valley (France): Bronze Label; Balticnet Plasmatec (Germany): Silver Label; and Nanoprogress (Czech Republic): Gold label. The improvement of our management performance and certification is one of our main targets to participate in this project and it is alredy done.

Congrats to our collegue!
