"The future of clusters through cross-country & cross-region collaboration"

Bogota, Colombia, 7-9 November 2017


Register before 14 July and benefit from the Early bird fee!





Ricardo Hausmann and Mary Walshok are two of the keynote speakers you will have the opportunity to be inspired by at the 2017 TCI Global Conference in Bogota.
Ricardo Hausmann is one of the most renowned economists in the world; his participation in the development of the product-relatedness theory will serve as a baseline for the discussion on the importance of the sophistication and diversification of the economic apparatus in productive development agendas, and the role of clusters as drivers of these transformations.

Mary Walshok is a thought leader and expert on aligning workforce development with regional economic growth. As author of more than 100 articles on regional innovation, the role of research institutions in regional economies and workforce development, her experience will guide the discussion on key issues such as skills mismatch and how cluster agendas can be used to bridge these gaps.


Successful call for proposals

We received proposals from more than 23 countries and have selected 83 panelists to participate in the interactive workshops to discuss themes such as:

  • RIS3 and clusters
  • Role of clusters in social and economic inclusiveness
  • Making clusters go international
  • What not to do in cluster management
  • Entrepreneurial agendas in cluster initiatives

The panels will include practitioners, academics, consultants, policy makers and businesspeople from Spain, Netherland, Mexico, Canada, Sweden, Colombia, among others; as well as successful cases from Germany, Korea, Turkey, United States and more.


We look forward to your participation!
