We participated at the Open4Business event organized by the South West Hungarian Engineering Cluster in Pécs (Hungary) in 2016, here we met the cluster manager, Berta Szabo. After the event we maintained the relation and communication about further events. On behalf of good communication and information sharing we decided to participate on the 2nd edition of the Open4Business and with this occasion we will discuss about a more serious partnership in order to go for Interreg Danube / COSME programmes. 

We participated at the Cluster Matchmaking event in Bruxelles in December 2016 where we met the Balticnet-PlasmaTec (BNPT) Cluster from Germany. We kept the relation after the event and they invited us to take part in a cluster management training in Berlin in April 2017, which helped us a lot in strenghten our cluster management organization and connect with more clusters in our interested field.

Through the ECCP we received an invitation from the Serbian Automotive Cluster to his event Supply&Connect in April 2017. We participated on this conference and matchmaking and built good relation with the cluster manager of AC Serbia, Igor Vijatov, and other invited clusters mostly from SEE Region. We are planning to go further and exchange good practices between the two cluster.
