The Cluster Academy shows how successful clusters work, using Upper Austria as an example which gives an input, how these processes could be implemented in your region. An additional benefit is the networking and exchange of experience effect with international participants, sharing the same interests in cluster activities.

For this year, extensive interactive formats of participation such as an ample case-study to complement lectures, workshops, field reports, and presentations are being designed. A direct visit to one of our key cluster partner companies should spot the motivation of being active in a cluster. Attractive side events give a chance to get to know the participants and the city of Linz.

The speakers are themselves cluster managers and experts from the organization under the leadership of TCI Director Werner Pamminger as well as international lecturers.
