Description:

ESCA (www.cluster-analysis.org) is the European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis. Based in Berlin and hosted by VDI/VDE Innovation + Technik GmbH, ESCA supports in particular cluster managers and policy makers with advice on cluster development. ESCA experts have developed a methodology for cluster benchmarking that is acknowledged by both cluster managers and policy makers throughout Europe. Since 2008 more than 450 cluster management organizations have been benchmarked according to this methodology. Being additionally involved in the European Clusters Excellence Initiative (ECEI) from 2009 to 2012, ESCA experts contributed to the development of tools that support cluster managers on their way to excellence. Thus, ESCA is additionally entrusted by the former ECEI consortium and the European Commission, DG Enterprise and Industry to manage assessment and awarding procedures for the Cluster Management Excellence Labels initiated by ECEI.
