Benchmarking visits & training


Join benchmarking visits hosted by European clusters and learn about their experience in situ.

Benchmarking visits are one-week inspiration and learning tours in Europe designed to acquire new methods and tools with priority topics identified during the diagnoses. 4 inspiration and learning tours designed by France Clusters, the coordinator of the Cluster Booster Track are organised between 2018 and 2020.

These 5-day tours combine training sessions and benchmarking visits and are hosted by regional agencies supporting the internationalisation of enterprises in Catalonia (Spain), Wallonia (Belgium), Region SUD Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (France) and Piedmont (Italy). Each cluster manager can participate in 2 out of the 4 tours, according to their priority topics, so as to improve their practices and share experiences and potential business and innovation opportunities.

Training sessions involve cluster managers and cluster management experts who share their methodologies and tools and work on practical cases to foster exchanges and cooperation between participants. Benchmarking visits explore examples of successful cluster-related practices and projects in situ, in line with the topics addressed by the training sessions.
