Event type: 

"Meeting of two worlds – wishes, plans and reality"

What is the rationale behind establishing clusters of Competence Centres - on local, regional and cross - border level?
In the period 2007-2013 many scientific centres and infrastructures were established in order to integrate research and development.
Today, their functioning, human resources, sustainability, international co-operation is largely discussed, as well as their co-operation with Competence Centres. The internationalisation of Competence Centres is a current challenge.

There are European research infrastructures, in the ESFRI, distributed throughout Europe (some even outside the Europe). What is the implementation of these R&D infrastructures in the “local” or regional innovation ecosystems?
What is the level of collaboration with regional and/or international enterprises? What is the impact on local economy?

EUREKA Clusters are strategically significant initiatives that develop technologies of key importance for European competitiveness. The Cluster instrument reflects synergies where European industry’s research and collaboration interests, innovation capacity - and national funding opportunities meet.
What is the perception of its members?
