3rd Transnational Policy Dialogue of the CluStrat project

We are pleased to invite you to the Third Transnational Policy Dialogue of the CluStrat project which will take place on

Thursday, 19th September 2013 in Novotel Budapest Danube, Hungary from 11:00 - 16:30.

The focus of the Third Transnational Policy Dialogue will be on the pilot actions which will be implemented in the project regions from October 2013 onwards. After two years of project implementation the 18 project partners have prepared the ground to test in their regions new policy instruments for clusters by conducting pilot actions.

In the event the joint strategy on new cluster concepts will be presented. This strategy represents the basis for the pilot projects.

The key strategic elements of the new cluster concepts will be tested in pilot actions. Subsequent to the presentation of the strategy, all project partners will have the opportunity to present their ideas on pilot actions.

In the afternoon session the responsible work package leader of the pilot implementation phase will provide an overview on preselected pilots. In the forefront of the event all partners are requested to hand in their pilot ideas. Based on this information, the work package leader will develop a preselection of pilot actions.

Afterwards there will be a discussion on the pilot ideas. The participants will have the opportunity to provide their opinion on the proposed pilot actions. Additionally external experts are invited to provide their input on the pilot actions of the CluStrat project.

We are looking forward to a lively exchange with you!

You are welcome to forward this invitation to the organisations / policy makers whom you would like to involve in the policy dialogue.

Please register online by 10th September 2013.
