Register as a cluster organisation


This profile is for cluster organisations. Before completing this profile, we invite you to check the definitions of clusters and cluster organisations we apply. Please note that if you are based in an EU/COSME country then we will use these definitions to validate your profile. Please fill in the country field first, as profile fields differ for cluster organisations in EU/COSME countries and other countries.

The publishing of the profile is subject to validation by the ECCP team, although the validation criteria can be waived for cluster organisations that are officially recognised by regional/national cluster policy programmes or are recognised as social economy clusters by the European Commission (DG GROW).

The validation criteria for cluster organisation profiles are:

  1. Dedicated cluster management organisation/team with at least 0,5 FTE (Full Time Equivalent)
  2. Website link – English version (automatic translation available also considered) – the validation team will look for consistency of information provided in the profile and on the website – proof of actively operating organisation – activities, services provided to members, common projects, recent news/events, etc.
  3. Number of members - minimum 15 clearly committed cluster participants (industry, business, research, government, other with majority from industry/business, including SMEs)
  4. Triple helix approach – member composition should include industry, research/universities and public bodies. It is not obligatory that public bodies are members in the CO, but it should be visible that there is a collaborative (interactive) approach between these actors (e.g. the CO is supported by public bodies or it is funded via a programme or that it has a mandate to perform activities of overarching interest for the industrial cluster). It is nevertheless obligatory to have a diversity of at least 2 types as members (either civil society bodies and SMEs, or industry and research….).
  5. Thematic focus: clear focus (technical or sectoral focus)
  6. Services: minimum 2 different cluster specific activities that are also reflected in the cluster organisation’s website/service offer
