In the project,we want to face the problems related to operation of clusters in the V4 region by organizing a meeting that will create space for sharing experience, solving problems and building a new network of people involved in clusters in the V4 countries.The key subject of the project is going to be innovation in clusters,i.e. research and development cooperation and effective technology transfer in clusters(more than half of cluster companies operate in the area of R&D and introduce innovation­clusters are a pro­innovation oriented environment;companies operating in clusters have a much greater ability to create innovation than their counterparts outside the structures.

PROJECT ACTIVITIES


Cluster representatives from different countries have common problems, needs and interests internationally, it is therefore, important to establish cooperation between the V4 clusters.Clusters are an extra­sectoral network of formal and informal relationships between manufacturers and their suppliers and consumers, science and technology institutions, competing and cooperating with each other in certain aspects of their operation. Hence, the role and importance of clusters in development of both the local economies and the entire V4 group. In the future, innovation of the V4 countries and of the entire region will be based on innovative small and medium enterprises.The project will open the door for international collaboration between the V4 clusters, thus promoting the entire V4 region.

 

Meeting for clusters representatives from the Visegrad Group countries


In terms of a project Clusters in the Visegrad Group ¬Challenges of the Future executed by the Polish Clusters Employers' Association, and supported by the International Visegrád Fund with its headquarters in Bratislava.Meeting for clusters representatives from the Visegrad Group countries will be organize meeting of cluster organizations of the Visegrád Group.

During the conference, planned for November of this year, we intend to face the problems related to the functioning of clusters in the V4 region, by organizing a meeting which is going to create a space for exchanging experiences, solving problems, and creating a network of people engaged in the activity of clusters in the countries of the Visegrád Group (V4).
The meeting, which is going to take place in Poland, will constitute a chance to present partners from the Visegrád Group with the experiences of Polish cluster which are an effect of the cooperation between the representatives of Polish academics and support received from the public administration, local governments, but also central administration and institutions supporting business and academics.
A key subject of the discussions and presentations will be, among other things, the close cooperation between entities from the V4 region and innovativeness in clusters (research-development cooperation as well as an efficient technology transfer within the clusters), because in our opinion companies operating in clusters possess much broader capabilities to create innovations than their equivalents from outside cluster structures.
The conference will start with a solemn dinner at 8 PM on November 23rd 2017 in Brenna (Hotel Kotarz Spa&Wellness, ul. Wyzwolenia 40, 43-438 Brenna).
The proceedings of the conference will also take place at the Silesian Aviation Cluster. The intention of such an organization is the will to present the guests, primarily foreign ones, with the accomplishments of the Cluster achieved thanks to a harmonious cooperation of Silesian entrepreneurs with the local and central administration, as well as agencies supporting entrepreneurship in Poland. That is why we plan to organize a session on November 24th at the Bielsko Aviation Technology, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation Park in Kaniów, where the Silesian Aviation Cluster operates.
During the meeting, a study visit to the Silesian Science and Technology Centre of Aviation Industry Ltd which is one the most modern innovation centres in Europe. The core areas of the Centre's activities are the development and implementation of lightweight and durable composite materials in the aerospace industry. The Centre has successfully implemented its own research and development projects, simultaneously providing services through accompanying customers at every stage of the construction of composite structures - from design to production of finished elements.
