  • TCI Evaluation Working Group Meeting, on the 14th and 15th of May 2018 - Hosted by the V-LINC Research Group @ the Cork Institute of Technology

TCI Network is the leading global network of main organisations and practitioners with deep expertise in clusters and competitiveness, who collaborate to advance the practice of competitiveness, innovation and cluster development. Through its activities, TCI reaches out to 9,000 practitioners from development agencies, government departments, cluster organizations, academic institutions, companies and multilateral organizations in over 110 countries.

The two day workshop will focus on evidencing the benefits of clusters and discussing a potential framework of cluster programme effects. What types of benefits do cluster efforts have? How are different types/levels of benefits experienced over time? The group will then revisit and follow-up a number of previous working group activities. The second day, will delve into the topic of evidencing the role of clusters in smart specialisation strategies, presenting ongoing approaches and experiences from across members of the working group.
