SAVE THE DATE! Intra-European Cluster Matchmaking Event - In the context of the European Cluster Conference
Within the context of the 7th edition of the European Cluster Conference 2020, the EU-funded European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP) will organise an Intra-European Cluster Matchmaking Event. The Matchmaking Event will be a unique opportunity for Clusters from the EU (and non-EU COSME) countries to explore common areas of interest for cooperation on behalf of their member organisations.
The Cluster Matchmaking Event will be held as a European Cluster Conference post-event on the 11th and 12th of November 2020. This will be the ECCP’s second virtual matchmaking event! A Call for Expression of Interest, targeting cluster organisations from the EU (and non-EU COSME) countries who wish to participate, will be available on the ECCP website in September. Cluster organisations that fulfil the eligibility criteria stated in the Call will have the opportunity to register directly for the Matchmaking Event through the Event’s website.
Event activities: • Preparatory webinar – an opportunity to receive guidance on how to participate successfully in the planned event. • Two virtual inter-cluster matchmaking sessions – an opportunity to network within the European cluster organization community through prescheduled one-to-one virtual meetings.
The Matchmaking Event will complement the activities of the European Cluster Conference 2020. The Conference will bring together cluster policy-makers, cluster managers, practitioners and other stakeholders to discuss and share current and future priorities for cluster policies and trends to support sustainable industry development, interregional cooperation and to build connections between Europe’s value chains, clusters and ecosystems.
