More than a hundred participants from CEI countries included in the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) participated in the third Workshop for Networking and Cluster Development in Danube Region, held on March 10-11, 2015 in Vukovar, Croatia.

The event, representing one of the key activities within Priority Area 8 of the EUSDR, was held in cooperation with the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Crafts of the Republic of Croatia and the Ministry of Finance and Economy of Baden Württemberg, jointly coordinating the Priority Area.

The event focused, in particular, on the Policy for Strategic Cluster Development in the Danube Region, including the prospects for the cluster network financing in the 2014-2020 programming period. New trends in regional cluster development in the Danube Region, including the presentation of the best regional and international networking practices were also addressed.

In a vivid final discussion the participants agreed that the workshop provided a good platform for better familiarising with the key stakeholders in the Danube region’s economic sector, as well as with prospects and guidelines for further economic development.

The event was co-financed by the CEI Cooperation Fund, contributed by all the CEI Member States.
