“Striving for Cluster Excellence”
The European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis (ESCA) is dedicated to promoting Cluster Management Excellence through benchmarking and quality labelling of cluster management organizations worldwide.
Based in Berlin, the organization coordinates a network of around 200 cluster experts from more than 30 countries, which offer benchmarking and labelling services on behalf of ESCA. Another service they offer is hands-on advice to cluster managers on cluster development and support for cluster policy makers and program owners.
The ESCA awards three different Quality Labels to qualified cluster management organizations. We went through the benchmarking process and after being analyzed we received the happy news that VRINN fulfills the “Eligibility Criteria for Cluster Management Excellence Labels ”. We are now officially allowed to use the ECEI (European Cluster Excellence Initiative) “CLUSTER MANAGEMENT EXCELLENCE LABEL BRONZE – STRIVING FOR CLUSTER EXCELLENCE” and are so proud! The certification show us that we are on the right track, that the work we do is important and with purpose. Of course there is still some piece of work ahead of us but the award is a next step to prove our status as a Cluster Organization.
