„Dear Cluster House Family,

On behalf of the Conference Management Board I would like to thank you for your trust, respect and cooperation since 2010.

Seven “Days of Clusters” conferences had been attended by representatives from 5 continents, 33 countries.

Together, we made such a powerful synergy that move a step forward the cluster development in the Balkan and Black Sea Region, Europe and wider.

We are proud on our volunteer efforts to organize the 7 “Days of Clusters”, the conference which became the leading cluster event in the SE Europe with the worldwide recognisable brand name, contributed in making new partnerships and friendships, in creating the new jobs and peace in the region…

…there are a lot of regional cluster events and projects accelerated by our mission, now for us it is time for something new in the Balkans...

See you on the cluster events organized by YOU! Clusters Days or Days of Clusters will continue in the Czech Republic, Romania, France...

Good luck cluster family, enjoy in clustering as we are enjoying :-)”
