ESCA – The European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis
The European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis (ESCA) supports cluster managers and policy makers with advice on cluster development. ESCA experts have developed a methodology for cluster benchmarking that has been widely acknowledged in Europe. Since 2007 they have benchmarked more than 600 cluster management organizations. Being also involved in the European Clusters Excellence Initiative (ECEI) ESCA experts contribute to the development of tools that support cluster managers on their way to excellence.
