ICN provides a unique platform that allows members to engage in project discussions with other clusters in order to form or join project consortia.
ICN’s network consists of 19 clusters on 4 different continents. The ICN clusters are typically based on a triple-helix structure, meaning that their membership consists of companies (primarily SMEs), public authorities, and research institutions. This ecosystem consists of 120+ public authorities, 130+ knowledge institutions and 16 000 SMEs.
Knowledge exchange is a core part of the ICN’s value. It is optimised through thematic focuses in ICN operations and can be used as a tool to grow into new regions through capacity building of candidate member organisations.
