Becoming A Memeber
In 2020, 15 clusters and cluster initiatives including 170 professionals across the quadruple helix engaged with us in further animating the clustering conversation across the island. The Cluster Centre continues to grow a community of cluster professionals.
From cluster managers, county councils, regional authorities, state agencies, networks, SMEs and education providers, this is your space to connect with like-minded clustering practitioners, to share your experience and learn from others. The Cluster Centre network shares cluster knowledge expertise and experience gained while continuing to grow the network and our cluster services and capacity build.
