    1. Additional information

    The objective of this Call for proposals is to pursue the EU efforts aimed at strengthening cluster management excellence in the EU by further using the results and tools developed by the European Cluster Excellence Initiative (ECEI) and building upon the experience and lessons learned from the 2011 Call for proposals and the current projects working on cluster excellence.

    More precisely, the action will support:

    • Training activities addressed to all project partners on how to use the benchmarking tool provided by the European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis (ESCA) for assessing the performance of the management of cluster organisations;

    • Training activities addressed to all project partners on how to assist cluster managers to improve their management skills and provide high quality services to their cluster members, by using the training materials provided by the European Foundation for Cluster Excellence (EFCE);

    • Activities to support the efforts of cluster organisations, which have already acquired the bronze label of excellence, to move to the next level of excellence and acquire the gold level.

    Eligible members of the consortium shall be regional or national public authorities or agencies financing and/or managing cluster programmes in their territory. Each consortium should be composed of partners from at least 3 different CIP participating countries. Maximum 4 projects will be funded through this action.
