The needs diagnosis is the first step of the Cluster Booster Track. It is reserved to 24 cluster managers from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia, who have been selected according to their structuration and motivation to benefit from further activities of the Cluster Booster Track.

The aim of the diagnosis process is twofold: on one side, it will allow to identify the real needs on the ground, and consequently the topics to focus on when defining the following Cluster Booster Track activities (such as the training and benchmarking visits and the mentoring issues; and on the other side, it will explore the cooperation wishes of the selected South-Med cluster managers towards their peers in Europe and/or different South Med countries. The diagnosis will adopt a methodology based on the European Cluster Excellence Initiative (ECEI) and will be performed by an expert accredited by the European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis (ESCA).
