Clusters development – YES! But how?

Clusters in Europe are operating with success for years, therefore their members have an opportunity to develop dynamically. Polish clusters are learning from European examples and become more and more important in economic policy, thus it is worth to learn about their trends and novelty. Especially, cluster is an attractive topic for micro, small and medium-size enterprises as they are, according to the studies, their main members. 
During the discussion panel „ Clusters development – YES! But how?” invited experts will try to assess the condition and development directions of Polish clusters in comparison to European countries. There will be also discussion if standards and management quality in cluster are only invention of administration or business strategy. The participants will learn what kind of public support are available, how to manage a cluster to obtain the National Key Cluster status and what are the alternate paths of their development. We invite to participate not only coordinators and members of clusters but also people who only consider involvement in a cluster. 
The session will be held during the V European Congress of Small and Medium-Size Enterprises on 13th of October from 14.00 to 16.00 in the International Congress Centre in Katowice. The participation in the session as well as in the whole Congress is free of charge.
