Welcome to the Romanian Cluster Competitiveness Platform!
The Competitiveness Assessment gives your cluster a clear picture of your standing in terms of
innovation, internationalisation, organisational structure etc. It offers you useful advice for
improving the management capacity and the spectrum of services rendered to your members.
The Romanian Cluster Competitiveness Platform proposes an integrated approach harmonising
considerations and practical aspects of utility aiming at becoming an useful tool for the
of competitive clusters based on innovation and internationalisation (1); an instrument to
cluster competitiveness and a consultancy tool (2); a way to evaluate performance of the cluster
management team (3); a flexible method allowing assessments both at cluster level and at the
of each member. The evaluation methodology considers both quantitative and qualitative aspects,
taking into considerations various indicators such as turnover, exports, employment, innovation
(quantitative) and geographical concentration, labour force, strategy, internationalisation and
cooperation (qualitative).Qualitative aspects play a validation role, after answers given by
are being digitalised. In the end, an analogical cluster function is being calculated. As data
in, the function autocorrects itself in order to give accurate results. Results are being
interpreted and recommendations are being provided.
