Vajda Lajos Vice President Clustero, Coordinator of the Clusters that have their management entity in the Business Incubator, referred to the structure of the Clusters: each Cluster should deal with business representatives and create value chains. You can not think of a longer perspective without research, creativity and innovation. We need specialist training and awareness raising about the possibilities. Internationalisation plays an important role in getting inspiration from international best practices, but the ability to represent the possibilities and achievements in Romania is also very important. Another important role regarding internationalisation has the communication. It is important for Clusters to be involved in the development of the region and the country as well, having as leading principle and document the Sustainable Development Goals-Agenda30.
