A Cluster Excellence and Business Hub
On 25 April 2013 Baltic Sea Cluster Development Centre (BSCDC) was opened on Bornholm in the Baltic Sea. With BSCDC a knowledge and business cluster development hub is now available to support business cluster development initiatives from around the world. BSCDC targets in particular development of, and cooperation between tourism, food, cleantech and maritime clusters.
The Baltic Sea Cluster Development Centre (BSCDC) is a result of a growing partnership between cluster development proponents and practitioners from around the Baltic sea region and in the Nordics.
The BSCDC responds to a call for establishing a regional hub – a hub where partners can access knowledge and excellence on cluster development, and a hub where cluster companies can access new partners and new markets in the Baltic Sea Region and in the Nordics.
