Get advice from a peer mentor. In a spirit of mutual learning, a mentor will help you implement your newly acquired knowledge.
Mentoring is based on the matching of experienced European cluster practitioners (managers or experts) willing to develop inter-cluster cooperation and share successful experiences, the mentors, with the selected cluster managers interested in peer feedback, the mentees.
Mentees benefit from an outside perspective and guidance for several months to deepen topics addressed during trainings, while mentors exchange ideas on clusters management issues which often result in new ideas for their organisation as well.
The aim of mentoring is therefore twofold: on one side, support the development of cluster management practices, and, on the other side, provide inspiration for new business ideas and cooperation opportunities.
