Six European clusters, all consortium members of the CLUSGRID (Clusters for Smart Grid) EU funded COSME project, seek submissions from suitably qualified training course providers for the provision of a classroom based training course in Cluster Excellence Management.
This is an open procedure regarding the training of cluster managers in the specific fields of Cluster Economy, Cluster Organization Management, Change Management, Value Chain Analysis and Industry Analysis and Segmentation.
The project “Clusters for Smart Grid” (CLUSGRID) is based on the ambition to strengthen cluster management excellence (under European Cluster Excellence Initiative [ECEI] criteria) leading to sustainable long-term cross-cluster and cross-border collaboration. The consortia is composed of six European Clusters in Information and Communication Technology, Energy Efficiency and Energy Renewable and Industry, Microelectronics, Optics and Photonics, and the six consortia member are from four different countries with a different level of cluster excellence. Project partners will jointly undertake a series of activities such as trainings, mentoring sessions and study visits and will identify the best practices, processes and tools for cluster management.
