"Integrating cluster policies within the future EU programme"
New document about "Integrating cluster policies within the future EU programme": The TACTICS consortium, together with members of the European Cluster Alliance and the European networks EURADA and ERRIN would like to emphasize the need for a strong cluster policy within the future EU programmes dealing with regional competitiveness.
Future research and Innovation policies should address the changing role of clusters to facilitate the emergence of new and revitalised competitive industries in Europe, and ensure stronger engagement of SMEs in EU programmes.
This document sets out a number of key recommendations for ensuring clusters feature prominently in the next round of European research, innovation and regional development programmes. The coming months will present a number of important opportunities for influencing policy makers and the future shape of EU programmes. We would therefore welcome your support in disseminating this position paper as widely as possible.
