European Foundation for Cluster Excellence
European Foundationfor Cluster Excellence
The European Foundation for Cluster Excellence (Fundació Clusters i Competitivitat) was established in Catalonia in 2003 with significant support from the Government of Catalonia and support from Vinnova, the Swedish Innovation Agency, and Yorkshire Forward, the former UK Regional Development Agency. The primary aim of the Foundation was to provide objective reviews of cluster performance and to create a permanent reference platform for comparison.
Among its missions, the Foundation delivers international trainings on value chain development and cluster excellence addressed to policy makers, economic development professionals or cluster practitioners.
