Submitted by Fabrizio Ciarmatori on 18 April 2019

The International Cluster-to-Cluster (C2C) meeting will be held in Bologna (Italy) on the 5th June 2019 as side event of the 14th edition of the R2B - Research to Business international exhibition.

The event is open to all clusters and cluster-like organisations and is free of charge upon registration since the number of participants is limited. The on-line registration form is available here.

The meeting is conceived as a summit that will gather high level representatives of national and regional clusters from European countries to exchange innovative models for cluster cooperation, explore common areas of interest for joint actions, activate new partnerships among clusters and between clusters and other innovation actors, and much more.

The C2C meeting will provide a unique and exclusive opportunity to meet high-level representatives of clusters (e.g. cluster managers)  and cluster experts (e.g. policy makers, practitioners) for exchanging knowledge and insights and preparing the ground for practical cluster international cooperation and innovative projects.

Participants will have the opportunity to join two interactive sessions:

  • workshop with keynote speakers and a round table discussion;
  • matchmaking with several rounds of cluster-to-cluster bilateral meetings.

All cluster representatives participating in the C2C meeting will have the opportunity to join the R2B - Research to Business exhibition and all related activities, including the Innovate&Match brokerage event on the 6th-7th June.

Moreover, up to 15 travel grants are available to support the participation of clusters from EU countries. Download here the guidelines and take the opportunity to submit your grant request (Deadline 6th May).
