Cover New Approaches to Improve the Performance of Cluster Management Organisations in Europe

The study analyses how cluster programmes support cluster organisations with technical advice on improving management performance. The current study shall contribute to the upcoming discussion how to provide better support schemes for cluster management organisations (and their staff) striving for excellence. The time for such discussion seems to be right, since many regions and countries within Europe are facing next programme periods and might look to at proposals on how the future support function for clusters and cluster management organisations could look like.
