European Clusters Labelling Excellence Structure
EUCLES is a non-profit association in charge of the promotion of cluster management excellence based on a coordinated European approach, as well as the delivery of quality Labels to qualified cluster management organisations.
The EUCLES association has been created in December 2020 with the objective to gradually take over the labelling system currently operated by ESCA (European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis).
EUCLES is the one-stop shop for promoting Cluster Management Excellence through benchmarking and quality labelling of cluster management organisations worldwide. The Brussels-based organisation coordinates a network of around 200 cluster experts from more than 30 countries, who propose benchmarking and labelling services on behalf of EUCLES.
The European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis awards three different Quality Labels to qualified cluster management organisations.
