CluStrat New Cluster Concepts
for Central Europe
Welcome to the website of the CluStrat project!
CluStrat has ended on 30.11.2014. Project results are available from the section "Results". This page won't be updated anymore.
Maintaining and improving the competitiveness of clusters in the CENTRAL EUROPE area – this was the core objective of CluStrat. The strategic project convened partners from Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia and Ukraine. In CluStrat, they had joined forces to develop and test new policy approaches to upgrade the innovation capacity of clusters. As a result, a joint strategy for CENTRAL EUROPE was adopted on
- promoting the anticipation and exploitation of changing market demands as a consequence of societal challenges such as climate or demographic change through clusters (Emerging Industries)
- fostering the inclusion of cross-cutting issues such as internationalization, technology transfer and gender in innovation in clusters (Cross-Cutting Issues)
CluStrat was implemented through the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF. Furthermore, it was considered as a Light House project within the EU Strategy for the Danube Region.
The CluStrat project ended in November 2014.
