Side events

As an integral part of the European Cluster Conference, we are pleased to introduce side events, scheduled for the afternoon of May 6, 2024. In alignment with the European Cluster Collaboration Platform, two noteworthy gatherings are scheduled: the assembly meeting of cluster partnerships/Euroclusters and the assembly meeting of National Cluster Associations.

The ECCP side event for European Cluster Partnerships and Euroclusters will convene cluster partnerships that have benefited from funding through COSME/SMP. Participants in this session will actively participate in discussions addressing the needs and expectations related to EU funding for cluster initiatives.

Simultaneously, the ECCP side event for National Cluster Associations will provide a unique opportunity for these associations to convene. National Cluster Associations will share insights, exchange ideas, and collectively reflect on the current support for clusters in their respective Member States. Discussions will also focus on the strategic actions being taken to define the role of clusters in the industrial transition of each country.

These side events are anticipated to be enriching forums, fostering collaboration and advancing the collective vision for the future of European clusters.
