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
