Cluster-to-Cluster Conference and Matchmaking

Baltic Sea Region International Cluster-to-Cluster Matchmaking and Conference…..

….is a conference dedicated to matching clusters (and SME networks) with each other, and support them in finding relevant funding for international activities. This two-day event gives both insight into funding schemes dedicated to clusters (such as BSR Innovation Express) and a unique opportunity to establish international collaboration with other clusters.
