The European Clusters Alliance has elected its first Board of Directors

On 28th of February, twelve members of The European Clusters Alliance (ECA) elected Antonio Novo Guerrero, chairman of the Spanish federation, as president. Hervé Floch from Association Française des Pôles de Compétitivité (AFPC) and Krzysztof Krystowski from Polish Clusters Association were nominated as vice-presidents.

This was the first election of the ECA Board of Directors. The alliance was launched on the 9th of September in 2019 as a network of cluster associations. It has a mission to give Europe´s clusters a common voice and create synergies between various activities of clusters at the international level. The ECA aims to position clusters as key agents in the European innovative ecosystem for the development and growth of the economy.

By facilitating collaboration this bottom-up initiative already gathers 13 national cluster associations from France, Finland, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Czech Republic, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Slovakia, Bulgaria, and Romania. Meantime it represents more than 740 clusters of the 965 European clusters officially registered in the European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP).

The European Commission has strongly supported cluster development for years through their active involvement in programs such as COSME, INTERREG or HORIZON 2020.

Congratulations to the newly elected Board of ECA from Lithuanian Clusters Network Klaster.LT team!
