As 2018 comes to a close, we want to share with our followers the work we have done this year to promote the practice of economic development through clusters and collaborative work.

We convened one global conference in Toronto, two regional conferences in Sofia and Panama and two meetings in Daegu and Sunshine Coast – Queensland, gathering 650+ participants. We also collaborated in other multiple forums organised by TCI members. Our two working groups gathered in Cork and Madrid to continue deepening knowledge collaboratively around evaluation and digitization. We entered the 3rd year of the CLUSTERS3-Interreg EU project “Leveraging cluster policies for successful implementation of RIS3”. We launched a new series of 6 webinars for our Latin American audience with 200+ connections.
We are proud to evidence the consolidation of our Latin American chapter and the growth of our Oceania and Asia chapters that speed our global reach up. We presented a special edition of the Shared Views publication and we produced a new flyer to make more visible how we add value to our members. We published monthly a newsletter that includes a compilation of the most recent research on clusters and competitiveness, 121 academic papers only this year.
We finish the year with a new record of 73 organizations and 448 members who actively contribute to the development of the TCI Network by sharing their expertise in this open arena of collaboration. 2018 has been also a year of smooth transition in our governance. For the first time in our history we have a woman, Merete D. Nielsen, leading the TCI Network as President; she took the baton from Christian Ketels who is the new Chair of our Board of Advisors. And certainly we remembered the conversations shared with Prof. Antoni Subira. We thank you for making part of this journey and we share with you some of the nicest moments along the year.

From everyone at TCI Network, we hope you have a happy and healthy festive season and a successful year ahead,
The TCI team and board
