How can we build better relationships in a cluster to drive economic development? A fitting cluster business model and the right leadership skills can help cluster managers and practitioners achieve this goal. They need to look at how the cluster is financed, how it is structured, and how it creates value impact. Additionally, they need the right skills and tools to develop their unique collaborative ecosystem to support innovation and growth.

The European Cluster Collaboration Platform, on behalf of the European Commission, organised the EU Clusters Talk “Successful clustering: Business models and management skills” on 24 January 2024, 8:30 – 9:45 CET, to discuss different existing business models for cluster organisations, essential skills for cluster managers, and strategies to successfully foster innovation and creativity.

Speakers included: 

  • Alain Tubiana, Head of Master “Collective Intelligence and Innovative Ecosystems in Europe”, University of Strasbourg
  • Ásta Kristín Sigurjónsdóttir, Cluster Manager, Iceland Tourism Cluster
  • Christian Rangen, Cluster expert and founder, Engage // Innovate
  • Gisela Sanchez, European Project Manager, Finance Innovation
  • Marcos Suárez, Project Manager, Basque Energy Cluster

This event is part of regular online meetings brought to the cluster community by the European Cluster Collaboration Platform. They offer up-to-date insights into the latest industrial policies and clusters’ involvement, projects, and best practices, the latest ECCP news, and funding opportunities. The EU Clusters Talks are a space to exchange knowledge and to discuss cluster-relevant topics, which will change with every meeting.

Prior registration to this event was compulsory before 24 January, 7:30 CET. This EU Clusters Talk is open to participants from the European Union and SMP/COSME countries. Approval for attending the session will be given individually.
