PARTNERSHIP - THE NEXT SOCIETY Mediterranean clusters meet the ecosystem in Barcelona

Country: Euromed, Europe
Activity: Other or not specified

26 cluster managers selected in Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia will meet the Catalan ecosystem during the first Benchmarking Visit & Training of the programme THE NEXT SOCIETY organised by France Clusters and ACCIÓ, the Agency for Business Competitiveness, from the 19th to the 23rd of November 2018.

These 5-day inspiration and learning tours involve Mediterranean cluster managers who meet their European peers and cluster management experts who will share their methodologies and tools and help them work on practical cases in order to foster exchanges and cooperation between participants. These visits take place after the diagnosis process that identified the topics which they intend to deepen: financing model, service portfolio development, set-up of a team, members engagement. Cluster managers will be able to acquire new tools and methods, identify good practices, work on practical cases but also initiate cooperation with their Mediterranean and European counterparts.

The programme of this first visit will tackle the issues of cluster policy framework, clusters strategy, communications and members engagement. Visits and study cases will be led by FEMAC, the Cluster of Agricultural Production Means, Beauty Cluster, SECPhO, the Southern European Cluster in Photonics and Optics and Energy Cluster.
3 other learning visits will be organised by 2020 by France Clusters and hosted by partner regional agencies for the internationalization of enterprises in Wallonia (Belgium), Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (France) and Piedmont (Italy).
