The Balkan Cluster within the Global TCI Network

In the framework of the Global TCI Network, it was an introductory partnership meeting between the Serbian Cluster House and the Bulgarian Consulting Cluster VERITAS at the Cluster House premises on April 6, 2017.

The Balkan clusters work locally and act globally.

The main conclusion from the meeting was that the Balkan Cluster Community should be more involved in the Global Cluster Community and thanks to the TCI organizational membership of the Cluster House and the VERITAS Cluster, there will be more opportunities for the cluster-based economic development in the Balkans using the TCI tools such as the cluster-based matchmaking and transfer of knowledge events, mentoring and peer review programmes.



One of the conference partners is the Cluster House, an organizational member of the Global TCI Network.
Dr Danka Milojkovic, director of the Cluster House and the TCI BofD, will present cluster-based startup model in countries in transition.
