Clusters CORD - Clusters and COoperation for Regional Development in Central Europe

funded under INTERREG IV B Central Europe

Clusters CORD is an interregional project, which aims for the improvement of the regional capacity in the management and development of clusters. To be a sustainable aim this means an exchange of experiences, good practices and a development of direct cooperation among the existing actors.
The regions, where clusters are a relatively new instrument, can learn from the experienced partners in this field.
Clusters from the same thematic fields but different geographical origin get together through the creation of three so-called "meta-clusters". Ten key industries have been already pre-identified:

• Mobility & Logistics
• Professional Services
• Automotive & Aeronautics
• Tourism
• Health Sciences
• Energy & Environment
• Production Technologies
• Wood Industries
• Food Processing

In workshops and conferences in the different partner regions stakeholders, experts and companies from fully grown or developing clusters can discuss, exchange views and learn from each other. This should help to bring the member states and Europe more together.
