Maintaining and improving the competitiveness of clusters in the CENTRAL EUROPE area – this is the core objective of CluStrat.

In CluStrat, they have 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 will be 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)
