Partner Meeting

At a glance

We invite to Partner Meeting for discussions of further development of the seafood cluster.

The Partner Meeting will be kick-off for a strategy process in defining how we in the coming years best can create value for owners, cluster members and the industry in general.
Since taken up in the NCE program, we have had a high level of activity. In the further development of the cluster organization, we want to focus the strategic areas of priority, the services we offer and the business model. As a starting point for the strategy process, we will get to know more about clusters and innovative ecosystems and challenges and opportunities in the seafood cluster.
We invite to a meeting with close involvement from decision-makers where we will facilitate dialogue, interaction and involvement of the participants in designing of the strategy for The Seafood Innovation Cluster.
