Since February 2016, OPTITEC is the proud holder of "Cluster Management Excellence Label GOLD". The latter acknowledges cluster organisations that demonstrate highly sophisticated cluster management and are committed to further improving their organisational structures and processes for the benefit of an even higher performance.
In order to qualify for the "Label GOLD", cluster management organisations need to meet certain levels of excellence in terms of structure of the cluster, governance, financing, strategy and services and recognition. In the course of a two-day audit conducted by two neutral cluster analysis experts, during which 31 indicators were assessed, OPTITEC achieved a score of 94 %.
Awarded by the European Cluster Excellence Initiative, the label enables OPTITEC to benchmark itself against its French (15 holders of Gold label) and European (5 clusters in the field of Micro-, Nano- and Optical technologies) peers and acknowledges its capacity to support members in achieving the objective of growth and competitiveness both on national as well as on European level.
