TCI Network in collaboration with Acció - the Catalan Agency for Business Competitiveness, organizes the Cluster Policy Workshop 2023 to explore the dynamics of the global policy landscape and dive into how policy frameworks are shifting as they help to develop clusters to advanced levels. Following the peer learning journey that we started last year in Bilbao, we will move forward in the design and implementation of groundbreaking cluster policies looking ahead. The whole TCI Policy Workshop will have a co-creating format filled with interesting cases and lots of group discussions and learnings.
At the TCI Policy Workshop, you can:
- Join experienced practitioners with core insight on cluster programs – hear their learnings and failures along the way
- Share ideas on what comes next in cluster policy
- Learn about the strong Catalan cluster trajectory
- Draft and share insights for the new TCI Policy Roadmap 2.0.
The TCI Policy Workshop is targeted to members of TCI Network and representatives from agencies and government departments that lead a cluster program and/or design a cluster policy.
