Summary description of the project:

The aim of the project has been to design and test capacity building on cluster management and cluster policy for stakeholders in the Baltic Sea Region. The project is a spin-off from the BSR InnoNet launched by the European Commission’s Directorate General of Enterprise and Industry. In the project we will design and pilot two different sets of training activities. The first training activity focuses on cluster facilitation and management. These training activities are targeted at cluster facilitators in the Baltic Sea Region and contain a total of five different modules. The second training activity is on Design, Implementation and Evaluation of regional and national cluster and innovation programmes. These training activities will take the form of workshops and are targeted at civil servants from ministries and agencies in the Baltic Sea Region. All training activities will be tested on regional, national and transnational levels.

Achievements of the project so far:

During the periode August 2009 to April 2010, 2 policy workshops have been designed and implemented as part of the WP5 activities. The workshops have been targeted policy makers at national and regional level working with cluster and innovation programs. The first workshop had the theme "Implementation and Evaluation" and focused on how to implement and evaluate cluster and innovation policy programs. The Swedish VINNVÄKST program and the Norwegian NCE program served as learning cases. The 2-day workshop was held in Denmark in September 2009. The second 2-day policy workshop took place in Sweden in October 2009 with the theme "Evaluation and Policy Learning" on cluster and innovation policy programs. The Swedish VINNVÄKST program served as a learning case. Approximately 45 policy makers and 7 trainers participated in the two workshops.

The policy workshops in the BSRCBP project has been a first attempt to exchange experience and build new competences for policy makers in the BSR working with cluster- and innovation programs at both the national and regional level. And as such the transnational policy workshops has proved to be a good platform for discussing key issues in designing, implementing and evaluation clusters- and innovation policy programs in the BSR region and will serve as a good platform for future knowlege exchange and learning among policy makers in the BSR.

In order to bring forward the learnings from the project, the project team has summarized the learnings from the project in report. The aim of the reporthas been to share experince on how the capacity building activities from the BSR_CBP project were planned, designed, tested and implemented in the Baltic Sea Region. The report can be downloaded from the BSR_CBP project webpage http://bsrcbp.trin.dk. We hope that the report will serve as input to future capacity building activities for project managers and teams across the Baltic Sea working with developing capacity building
