Meet Your Cluster Partners

Over 150 clusters from not only the Baltic Sea Region, but also from several other European countries have alreday registered to the 2nd BSR Cluster-to-Cluster Conference and Matchmaking and more are registrering every day. This means that the event is now fully booked. In case you want to get on the waiting list for the event please contact Kaspar Nielsen on kan@netmatch.nu. 

See the final agenda here.

Do not miss out on this unique chance to network and meet with potential cooperation partners on September 18-19 in the prominent premises of the Bundesministerium in Berlin.

At the event you will not only have the opportunity to meet with potential cooperation partners, BUT the event will also offer you speeches on internationalisation of clusters by top keynote speakers such as:

  • Dr. Gerd Meier zu Köcker, Director, Go Cluster, Director, VDI/VDE Innovation + Technik GmbH
  • Dr. Christian Ketels, Professor, Harvard Business School, President of TCI

 

Focus

BSR Stars' cluster-to-cluster conference and matchmaking is dedicated to matching clusters (and SME networks) with each other, and support them in finding relevant funding for international activities. This two-day event gives both insight into funding schemes dedicated to clusters (such as BSR Innovation Express and H2020) and a unique opportunity to establish international collaboration with other clusters.

In 2014, the event presents an increased focus on the opportunities for clusters in Horizon 2020 and takes place in Berlin in order to represent broader collaboration possibilities. Thus we call it “Towards New Horizons”

Why participate?

  • Besides excellent matchmaking opportunities the event also offers an interesting but light conference program
  • Insight into the new BSR Innovation Express call, offering funding opportunities dedicated to clusters
  • Overview of different possibilities for funding to develop or enhance international cluster cooperation activities
  • Opportunity to form or develop a Horizon 2020 consortium and other European projects (see program here)

Who can participate?

  • Cluster managers and key cluster staff from clusters in the Baltic Sea Region (including Germany)
  • Cluster mangers and key cluster staff from other regions from clusters with at least a Bronze label according to the European Cluster Excellence Initiative Approach (ECEI).  In case you are not from the Baltic Sea Region but wishes to participate in the event please contact Kaspar Nielsen on kan@netmatch.nu.
