RUE AERO (Reaching Up to Excellence in Aerospace Cluster Management) stems from one of the Expressions of Interest for a European Strategic Cluster Partnership in 2012 and seeks to bring about the means to give continuity to the ECCP call. The project will not only provide the means, but also the road-map and the drum-beat to improve the partners' quality of cluster management and to support at least 5 partners of the consortium achieving the next (higher) level of their corresponding label.
The project intends to support the further collaboration between the multiple aerospace clusters within Europe.
Therefore it will strengthen the inter-cluster collaboration within the European Aerospace Cluster Partnership (EACP). The partner organisations will also exchange information about their current menu of services to SMEs. The collection of practices will provide a pool of ideas to the project partners. This pool of ideas helps the partners to further their cluster management excellence by allowing them to pick the most transferable and best actions for individual (common if possible) implementation.
The project aims to foster excellence in regional cluster managements and to strengthen the European strategic partnership EACP as a whole. Exchanging content and management practices will lead to a better partnership infrastructure and activity level to the benefit of ALL partners.
