TCI 2018 European Conference: Turning Challenges into Opportunities
TCI Network invites the cluster community to send proposals and to take part of the program at the TCI 2018 European Conference that will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Hosted and organised by Sofia Municipality, the Association of Business Clusters of Bulgaria and Consulting Cluster Veritas, the TCI 2018 European Conference Turning challenges into opportunities will be an opportunity to take stock of what has been achieved in Eastern Europe as well as laying out the directions for what remaining challenges need to be challenged through clusters.
How do clusters-based efforts need to be structured to align better with local circumstances, from the sophistication of firms to the capacity of government and the general conditions of competitiveness? How can we draw on common learnings but also respond to unique local needs? How can cluster efforts become drivers of broader changes in locational competitiveness? What is the right approach to achieve broader impact while remaining anchored in the core cluster dynamics?
The Bulgarian Presidency of the EU Council in 2018 will be an opportunity to connect those discussions at the TCI European Conference in Sofia with the broader debate on modern industrial policies to face common long-term and short-term goals for a sustainable and smart growth in the European Union.
The TCI 2018 European Conference will feature cluster tours, a range of global senior-level speakers, discussions and parallel sessions. In addition, you can meet and network with new and experienced cluster practitioners during social events.
