The European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP) recently launched a call for expressions of interest for national, regional and local cluster events to be featured in the “European Cluster Weeks 2018-2019” campaign. Running between 20 November 2018 and 30 April 2019, the initiative will support and promote cluster events through the ECCP website, social media, and with the help of a promotional toolkit.

The application is open to any national, regional and local cluster event either organised by cluster stakeholders, or organised around the “cluster” topic or a specific topic closely related to it. The EU Cluster Weeks initiative aim to encourage participation and partnering at these events, highlight the role of clusters and what they do, and offer an opportunity to collect feedback on common challenges and how clusters can address them.

The events included under the EU Cluster Weeks brand have a chance to be selected to present their outcomes to a wider audience and feed into the discussions on future EU cluster initiatives during the European Cluster Conference that will take place in Bucharest on 14-16 May 2019.

Additional info about the EU Cluster Weeks 2018-2019 and how to apply can be found on the ECCP website.
