Cluster management excellence
Once again, we achieved top score on the cluster management excellence evaluation, and was awarded with the Gold Label.
The Gold Label certificate is granted by the European Cluster Excellence Initiative (ECEI) to cluster organisations that receive at least 80% on their cluster management excellence score.
The GCE Ocean Technology Cluster have achieved the ECEI GOLD Label status since 2013, they are excellent in all aspects, they score consistently extremely high and again they challenge the experts’ ability to identify any aspects or areas of further improvements. GCE Ocean Technology clearly is a world class cluster organisation. ESCA Report.
