Linking Romanian and Norwegian cluster initiatives

Innovation Norway and Norway Grants Green Industry program has been instrumental in the development of a Romanian Cluster Excellence training program consisting of two day workshops for 15 Romanian cluster organizations in september and in november 2016. Innovation Performance AS is responsible for the implementation of the program. One of the key aims of the program was to build a basis for further collaboration between Romanian and Norwegian cluster initiatives. In the second workshop in Bucuresti on November 3-4th, we will cover cluster internationalisation and discuss potential follow up activities related to the next phase of the Norway Grants Green Industry program.

On day one in Bucuresti we will introduce some internationalisation tips & tricks. Following the introduction we split in workgroups to work on these topics:

1. Are your cluster ready to start internationalisation?
2. Your internationalization goals and a strategy?
3. Which Norwegian clusters, if any, would be relevant to work with?

We have developed two articles on our blog to help You prepare:


  • The basics in a short memo «Clusters going Global- roles and challenges» and then some recommended more in depth reading for all clusters on an internationalisation journey. You will find the article here.


  • How to find information about relevant Norwegian cluster initiatives.
