- Preparing cluster concept
In compliance with negotiations with the client, our services include setting the objectives, operational fields and activities of the cluster. We make recommendations on the services to be provided for members and determine the possibilities of joining the cluster.
- Developing organisational and operational rules
Our services include determining the organisational and operational rules of the cluster which contain, as a minimum, the following:
- operational fields and activities of the cluster,
- organisational structure of the cluster:
- cluster management, members of the board, the orders of election, frequency of meetings,
- the cluster’s management organisation,
- the rules of accession to and secession from the cluster, possibilities of exclusion, the order of payment of contributions to the cluster,
- confidentiality obligations, protection of intellectual property,
- managing documents.
- Developing cluster partnerships
Utilising our extensive relationships, we map domestic and international clusters and organisations relevant from the aspect of the operational field of the cluster and then send the introductory material of the cluster to the target group determined jointly with the cluster. If potentially interested entities appear, we provide help in developing the framework of cooperation and participate in establishing initial contact.
- Developing cluster strategy
We develop the cluster’s strategy according to the specifications of our client with the following content:
- internal R&D strategy: exploring R&D&I cooperation opportunities among cluster members, locating funding sources;
- external R&D strategy: mapping other opportunities of cooperation for cluster members;
- marketing and utilisation plan: analysing the marketing and utilisation opportunities of products, technologies and services marketed or developed by cluster members;
- service providing portfolio: developing the services provided by the cluster’s management organisation for cluster members;
- other issues relevant to the cluster.
CompetencesBased upon our experiences of Hungarian and international best practices, we are capable of providing high-quality services to our clients to ensure that they are able to most efficiently create the necessary operational conditions in the case of establishing a new cluster and to develop efficient management activities in the case of an already existing cluster.
During our cluster development service, the theoretical knowledge and qualifications of our economist staff members ensure that the ideas of our clients fit the most cutting-edge European cluster policy trends.
We have participated in developing many Hungarian clusters into accredited innovation clusters partly by drawing up the accreditation proposal documentation and partly in developing R&D&I strategies.
During past years, we have received many requests to participate in establishing project companies. As a result of that, we have participated in generating research and development and innovation projects and, thanks to our active role, the R&D&I projects of two project companies shall be implemented with over HUF 0.5 billion state subsidy in total.
We can also often provide useful assistance to our clients in recruiting ideal cluster members.
Our staff promotes domestic cluster-based cooperation at international partner meetings and workshops, thereby also providing for establishing and strengthening the international relations of the clusters that we represent.
We can locate the financial sources that help support the development of new or existing clusters. As a member of Pharmapolis Debrecen Innovative Pharmaceutical Cluster, we have practical experience in the everyday operation of clusters.
We have participated as experts in many research projects, surveys and analyses within the framework of projects serving the development of cross-border cluster cooperation.
