The CLUNET project aims to share experiences and implement concrete pilot projects regarding cluster innovation and development policies. It will be developed by uniting the 13 regions represented in CLUNET and the 64 top-level clusters currently supported by the partners in a single network. The project will focus on future challenges and opportunities for clusters. With the additional participation of the Montreal Metropolitan Community, CLUNET will benefit from the Canadian's experience in cluster policies and will provide a unique platform for internationalisation.
The specific objectives of the project are:
- To identify the range of policy actors and programmes supporting the most dynamic growing clusters with various policy tools, including SME internationalisation and incubation policies.
- To learn from and exchange examples of best practice with partners and to develop realistic policy tools that take account of business needs and of national administrative and legal barriers.
- To design and implement a number of concrete pilot cross-border cooperation initiatives to support cluster growth and innovation.
- To launch a sustainable cluster development initiative and to put in place appropriate dissemination tools for examples of best practice.
