ICN creates value for regional stakeholders and is the primary platform for member clusters to engage in international outreach. ICN members pledge to act as strong, innovative strategic partners by collaborating on activities and sharing cross-regional business opportunities.

ICN membership enables cluster organizations to connect with thousands of potential new partners.

“When we spot opportunities, we share them with members and do our best to facilitate contacts with new customers, suppliers and research partners from other clusters so members can form partnerships and seize the following opportunities.”

ACCESS TO PARTNERS

  • Build solid relations with key industry stakeholders (e.g., buyers, investors, researchers) who facilitate business opportunities.
  • Collaborate with other clusters on inter-cluster projects.
  • Partner with 3rd party organizations (e.g. UN, EU) that provide access to and funding for inter-cluster projects.

ACCESS TO MARKETS

  • Engage in further cross-regional coordination with clusters that are well-positioned, highly motivated and have strategic strengths.
  • Gain market knowledge as each member serves as a one-stop entry point for its respective region.

ACCESS TO EXPERTISE

  • Share best practices for cluster management excellence.
