On 29 and 30 November 2022, a "Cluster meets Regions" workshop will be held in the Croatian capital Zagreb to discuss digital transformation and interregional cooperation in Croatia. The organisers are the European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP) together with the European Commission and the European Association of Development Agencies (EURADA). The workshop will explore how clusters, regional development agencies and other actors could foster stronger collaboration in the implementation of regional and national economic development policies.
The objective of the event will be to facilitate the implementation of good practices where clusters play an active role in regional economies and are drivers for economic transition and to create and promote collaborations between clusters and regional stakeholders for the industrial development of the regions.
On the first day of the event, Dr Jan-Philipp Kramer will take part in the session "Improving Collaboration between Clusters and National & Regional Authorities". This session will explore and compare policy approaches, practices and initiatives for cluster development and for their involvement in the design and implementation of national regional economic policies in Croatia and in other countries. Dr Jan-Philipp Kramer presents an input paper detailing the key considerations for the future development of the region from the perspective of the Croatian cluster ecosystem.
Participants include representatives of regional development agencies, cluster organisations, national public authorities, companies, the Enterprise Europe Network and other business support organisations from EU Member States and regions.
