Our contribution: careful analysis, global perspective, feasible projects

European Observatory for Clusters and Industrial Change

The objective of this project is to help Europe's regions and countries in designing better and more evidence-based cluster policies and initiatives to accelerate industrial modernisation, boost entrepreneurship in emerging industries with growth potential, and facilitate SMEs' access to clusters and internationalisation activities and more strategic inter-regional collaboration and investments in the implementation of smart specialisation strategies. This general objective is translated into the specific objective of promoting the development of more world-class clusters and business networks in the EU, with a view to accelerating industrial modernisation and the creation of jobs and growth.
